  • At home (or work) I only really drink the jarrah French liaison... I don’t like other instant coffee but I also can’t be bothered to grind and press on the espresso machine. I don’t even know why we still have it actually lol

    • I find Nespresso to be better than instant coffee. It's even faster.

    • Show All
    • @bubble_tea there are like 20 Nespresso stores that take the pods back in my entire country which is roughly the same size as the continental US 😉 not super convenient and even recyclable I just don’t like the idea of one use products like that 😊

    • Sorry, I meant I "give" them back. When I place an order, I tick a box that I have used pods to recycle, and the driver takes them with him.
      But fair enough.

  • I prefer the coffee I make with my Italian espresso maker. Why. I can drink it with the milk I like and the coffee never tastes burnt. Whereas at Starbucks, I've been served burnt tasting latte before. I don't know if the barista lacked the skills or if that's how they like their coffees to taste. Yuck.

    • It is and it makes it fat... but i dono i'm too lazy to make my own coffee and carry a flask around. I might start bringing my coffee into the office, but i know the fuckers will nick it.

  • I like both. I think I like non-instant a little more. Instant coffee is good in small quantities but too much and you get sick of it very quickly. However it has a unique taste that regular coffee doesn't have.

  • I avoid instant coffee like the devil. It's always terrible and you get the gross dregs at the bottom of the mug. If I'm at home, I use my Keurig machine or I brew it normally.

    If I'm out, I go to Starbucks, Balzac's or Aroma, depending on where I am.

  • I drink decaf coffee, so I prefer to drink my own coffee at home. I love kenco decaf. Most cafe's use their own brand. When I'm out, I prefer Costa coffee

  • I simply can't imagine my life without a Coffee (
    But I prefer to use Keurig machines for that purpose. They are extremely easy to use, easy to clean and make coffee in mere seconds. My morning coffee routine has been transformed since I purchased my Keurig, and I can’t imagine going back to our old coffee maker. Find out how to use a Keurig machine

  • Well I usually drink instant coffee at home because it’s way cheaper this way. If I bought cafe coffee every day id be broke haha. Cafe coffee tastes better though 👍🏻

    • good thing im not straight

    • I think you're missing what I said. No self respecting gay man would admit to drinking instant coffee.

      It's like a basic life skill so you don't have to spend so much money on coffee - you're going to need this skill when Trump starts WWIII. PM me later. I'll find an instructional video for you.

  • Both don't really have a preference

    • we don't have creamers in Aus, I want to try it

    • Show All
    • An additive that modifies the taste of coffee to make it taste better.

      Instead of that dull dirt taste you get a rich flavor from vanilla, to caramel and even chocolate

    • I know that but is it like a mix of cream and milk?

  • I try never to have instant coffee. However, I'm not a big Starbucks, Costa kind of man either.

    At home, I like the cafetiere stuff the best, I think. When I'm abroad, I like the real thing.

  • Instant coffee is a terrible substitute for real coffee and I never keep i9t on hand. I prefer home brewed dark roast coffee with a dollop of 18% cream and a teaspoon of sugar per cup full.

  • I drink both but most of the time the homemade instant coffee tastes better than the coffee you buy at coffee stands and stores that you pay a crazy amount of money for.
