  • Good instant coffee

    I know although that the phrase instant coffee is akin to a blasphemy to
    most of the CoffeeSnobbers here, there are times when we have to resort
    to instant coffee.

    So far the best instant coffee that Ive tasted is Nescafe Short Black coupled
    with demerara sugar. Any opinion on good instant coffee or this is just
    strictly off-limits? 8-)

    Im not sure that the word "Good" should be used in the same sentance as "instant coffee"

      Id agree. If instant coffee is all thats on offer, Ill just have tea, or nothing at all.

        Good advice Jakes
        Considering the huge range of teas available there is always something to suit everyones taste.

        When travelling to the inlaws i always take my stove pot or if we forget then its tea rather than drink the "international roast" they rave about.

          IMO "Instant Coffee" is an interesting drink, but it sure isnt coffee.
          I have made iced coffee flavoured milk with it though, and I find that a dollop of Irish Mist improves the taste considerably!

            Bit like having a good head ache instead of a bad one ;D

            I "agree" Tea is sometimes the safest option

              Hi afton

              Yes - I have to confess to having a bottle of Nescaf Short black at work for when I am too lazy to walk 20 min to the only coffee place near my work that makes coffee the way I like it.

              Though I have to adimt, good instant is a bit of an oxymoron.

                Unfortunately I do have to drink Instant at work due to time constraints - If I must I usually drink Maconna (any of the varieties) but it still tastes bad. Occasionally I will duck out to a nearby cafe and grab a quick shot but it is still not like what I get at home.

                  think of it this way. take your favorite food and cook it badly. then freeze dry it, store it for 2 years then mix it with water. Would you eat that?
                  Instant is not coffee but a poor imitation.

                    On my recent roadtrip up north I stayed at some pretty dodgey motels for the night, some of which had the classic, Internat-Roast.... I was curious so I tried some after not really touching the stuff for over 5 years or more..... lets just say, I reckon the 3 day old dreggs in my drip tray would have been more appealing. YUK!!!!

                      I dont remember Intl Roast tasting that bad but it has been a lot longer than 5 years.
                      Maybe 25.

                          Id been having this debate with my flatmate for a long time. He conceded the fact that my homeroasted coffee tastes amazing but refused to accept that something is wrong with his instant coffee.

                          Hes also a bit of a wine drinker. So I put it to him this way -

                          "Would you buy sachets of powdered wine?"
