Instant coffee?

I drink instant coffee, even though it is nasty tasting.
I drink it at work everyday.
I take my coffee black, no creme, no sugar.

So who else drinks instant coffee?

Here's my proof:

We have an timer on our coffee maker. We just prepare it the night before, and it's done brewing when we wake up. I'll have one cup before I start my day, then carry an insulated cup to work, and then I'm usually done drinking coffee for the day...

Confession is good for the soul. Don't you feel better now?

I start off the morning with the same Instant but with a homemade cinnamon creamer. When I want a more serious cup I coarse grind some beans and use my French Press, made all the more convenient by an instant hot water maker that delivers the exact amount of water input.

I keep it around for baking.
Almost had to use it for drinking one day a few weeks ago... WHEW!

When I was little I would sneak spoonfuls of it straight.

Hmmm, wonder why I prefer a french roast or striaght up espresso these days.

I think we need to take up a collection.... get him a new coffee maker with timer and some real coffee.....

But since we are in a confessional mood.... I lived on the stuff in college!

Hey, I do feel better now!

Buck always said that the ultimate cup of non-Joe is a cup of instant coffee, sweetened with artificial sweetener and lightened with non-dairy coffee creamer. No fuss, no muss, no coffee!

I'm not a coffee drinker, so I can't criticize those who are. Enjoy however you like it.

My mother drinks it every day and has for as long as I can remember (and I am not young)! I do not drink it ever.....has to be the real thing for me.

As the ONLY coffee drinker in the house, I drink STORE BRAND DECAF INSTANT WITH NON-DAIRY POWDERED CREAMER each and every day. What of it? It ain't so bad...
