You like it, thats fine.
I dont like it and I see no need to force what I regard as an inferior product down my neck. To answer the title of the post - YEP! Compared with what I like to drink, it is.
Instant coffee is a different drink to brewed coffee.
Brewed coffee is a different drink to Espresso based coffee.
Syphon, filter, mypressi etc. all have variations.
Not all coffee is created equally (and I dont mean the artifical sweetener).
By all means, you can drink what you want, just dont expect me to agree with your choices.
If its a choice between freshly squeezed orange juice and orange cordial, Ill have water. Its even more convenient.
