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...

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.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

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...
