Subject: anyone else prefer instant coffee?
For many years I use to drink regular drip coffee, sometimes I even
bothered to make some french press coffee. Since everyone kept saying
how nasty instant coffee is I didn't really bother with even trying
it. My only experience with instant coffee was the awful stuff that
came from the 25c machine next to our dorm kitchen.

But then I found the holy grail of coffee! Nescafe espresso! And then
later also the red cup variety. Suddenly I was drinking coffee that
taste better than any other coffee I'd ever drunk before.

Anyone else with similar experiences? Instant coffee is the way to go!
If you want the best there is in coffee!

Then you'll love 'instant beer.' Mix club soda and a tablespoon of
Everclear and a teaspoon of 'instant beer.' Only a fine pallet like
your's could fully appreciate it.

Here in the last outpost (Australia) we prefer International Roast to
Nescafe.
Method is simple. Use two teaspoons per cup, make up a large batch --
ie, one gallon. Sugar to taste.
Distil resulting brew, using gas or electricity. After throwing out
residue, take remaining distilled water, add pinch minerals, and use
in espresso machine. Result, deelicious.

There have been when traveling that I've preferred Nescafe instant to
the thin, burnt coffee otherwise available (or in some cases, no
coffee at all). I'd call it "not awful." . But that is a very low
threshold to rise above. The only possible explanation for your
experiences is that even though you drank drip coffee for many years
and "bothered" to make some French press, you didn't know how to brew
coffee properly. That, or you are indeed a troll.

I think it would be fair to say that my wife could drink the finest coffee
for many a long mile.

Er - for those that don't know me - giotto, gaggia or krups espresso, half
a doz conas, another half doz cafetieres, mokas, another half a doz
different filter types, turkish, steam toys, napolitains, biggin, another
half a doz grinders, 3 (working) roasters etc. - even a jug and teastrainer.

and she prefers nescafe with the milk microwaved for her midmorning no-tea
break.

But we are British.

My vote goes for troll. I don't think you could screw up French press that
badly, unless possibly with rancid coffee beans.

It is a sad testimony to the average poor quality of the slops served
as (brewed) coffee out there that instant coffee is indeed
occasionally better than the real thing.

Yeah, my Dad did, but he died eight years ago. He preferred canned condensed
milk in it too (habit from WWII).

If that's the direction your tastes lead you, then good on yer. You'll save a
bundle of money as well.

Yes and no.

Yes, someone I know drinks instant coffee. A simple choice, so
stated, to the exclusion of other "fancy coffees", in a singular
estimation. Consciously, insofar that drinking instant coffee forms
to regard, none other than the subjective sense taste determines
best. Truth may not be objectively said to be sung, rung out, thus,
that drunk coffee is by all an agreeable manner all shall abide.
Better -- having drank instant coffee, the sensation impressed is one
that ought continue to drink well. . .drank in the right light of
contingency greater experience modifies, and etc.*

No, someone I know realizes there exists better "fancy coffees", other
than instant coffee. The applied subjective sense then may be said to
have gained sole familiarity from usage of instant coffee, to the
exclusion of all other coffees. Such a person, when publicly
approached, knows well enough that the sole familiarity clause exists
to justify, not propigate, a minority habit.

An similar anology exists, were I an *NIX user from a base of 5%
computational operations, to step up and say *NIX is the best there is
in computing. Without clause, the statement stands alone as counter-
intuitive.

why pay with your nose when you can get the best for less?

Read the ingredients of that stuff. If that is what you consider food,
then that is fine.

And your definition of "best" certainly differs from the majority
opinion around here.
