Any recommendations for an instant coffee?
Right, I'm fed up drinking crappy coffee at home after getting used to the real deal at work [M&S Nicaraguan Ė itís unbelievably awesome!] At the same time I can't really justify the effort involved in making Ďrealí coffee for just myself when Iím at home.
Can anyone recommend me something that's a bit nicer than Nescafe?
should I just stop being lazy and stick with the real stuff?

I assume by "the real stuff" you mean Dr Pepper, right?
Come on, what's the worst that could happen?

Lyons coffee bags.
Basically ground coffee in a teabag. About 2 quid per box (20ish bags) in my local supermarket.

Seconded. I have one every morning. It's such a simple idea as well - coffee, ina bag. Like, why isn't more coffee sold like that? You get stacks of different types of teabags, afterall.

Buy a caffetier, hardly any more hastle then a cup of instant coffee.
All instant coffee is rubbish, Kenco really rich and blend 37 are probably the best of a bad lot.
Give this epic thread from the OcUK forums a quick scan. linkiness

If you really want an instant. Nescafe Blend 37 is nice.

Nescafe Alta Rica is probably the best instant coffee :-)
(The trouble with recommending anything to with taste is that people like different things; people buy Birds Mellow blend, for example, and yet there's more coffee taste in the average washing up water!!)

Get the real stuff, Instant Coffee isn't even on the same planet as the real thing. Once you have it all set up, shouldn't really take much longer than tea.
If you really must drink instant, then Carte Noire, or if you can find it, the legendary Rocket Fuel (not a purist coffee, but brilliant stuff).

You go to the supermarket and you buy a jar of this. It's the best. But don't be a wimp and put it in a cup. Put some on the back of your hand and snort it like snuff. Be a real man.

I have to kick it with a Kenco Rapor first thing in the morning
my other half likes a dash of carnation milk or squirty cream with marshmellows

Another vote for doing it properly. My coffees at home start out as beans, which I grind as needed and then run through a percolator.
If you must "slum it" with the instant, then try the Kenco single origin coffees - I like the Peruvian and Costa Rican ones.

I do like the Douwe-Egberts gold if it has to be instant.
Otherwise I grind the beans fine and then load them into the coffee duck which goes in my Phillips Senseo.

Why dilute the strength I just freshly grind the Costa Riva beans into a fine powder which I then snort like snuff from the back of my hand just like the South American Indians used to do.
You softies don't know nothing about real Coffee and how it should be taken !!!

Get yourself a Senseo coffee machine. Wonderful things.
