    There is a tongue in cheek article in the SMH newspaper that in my interpretation says instant coffee is better or preferable than most coffee shops in Sydney



    Snip
    J. D. Salinger, one of the worlds great writers, thought Burger Kings flame-grilled Whopper burger was a terrific invention. It was "better than just edible", he wrote in a letter just released and certainly far superior to the burgers offered by other establishments.

    If Salinger Zen Buddhist recluse and intellectual could gain such pleasure from a Whopper, it raises the question: are there other oft-derided aspects of ordinary life deserving of a little more praise?

    Instant coffee, for example. Who, amid the coffee Nazism of our time, would dare admit that instant coffee is actually a pretty good drink?

    My work has Nescafe Blend 43, a good selection of Twinings and Dilmah teas, as well as Coffee Bags (which are still about 10 times better than instant coffee). That Nescafe Foodservice Blend is just nasty. Its suitable for nursing homes where the dementia patients still hate the coffee, but cant remember for long enough to complain about it.

    There has been talk of getting a coffee machine at work, but I think the maintenance and cleaning is their biggest concern.

    Thankfully my job is on the road, not in the office, so I whip home for my lunchtime coffee :)
