    Instant Coffee

    Just purchased a tub of the new Nescafe Azera (£3.29 for 60g was a bit of a shock) as I love coffee but have grown to hate the taste of the instants. I must say it's rather nice - not quite the barista standard as it claims, but still rather drinkable.

    Ah, caffeine.......I can cope with the rest of the day now

    I can't stand instant coffee at all, only drink coffee from Costa/Starbucks and from my Tassimo machine at home.

    Caramel Latte Machiatto? Don't mind if I do!

    I drink Typhoo instant tea in school. That way, nobody can pinch my milk! I put it in a large, insulated mug and it stays warm for ages.

    A bit of a coffee head here too..

    Azera is nice, Millicano (Kenco) is better, but avoid the Carte Noire one - a strange concoction that is!

    Of course, much prefer ground coffee, Percol and Jamaica Blue being favourites

    I can only drink Nescafe while reciting the mantra "Despirate times call for crap coffee".

    I'd like a decent coffee machine here but I'd probably kill myself by overdosing on coffee.

    Whenever people find out that I drink neither tea or coffee, they look at me as if I'm a bit odd

    I prefer Kenco or other ones as can't stand Nescrape :P

    Costa and Starbucks have some things that need improving such as mochalatte ( tastes like burnt coffee ) where as when made by myself with hot chocolate and kenco ( actually tastes like it should )

    I use an Aeropress thing at work. It takes a few seconds longer than instant (eeeuch!) and produces a pretty good coffee given decent beans as input. It also 'sweeps up' all the grinds from home which are left over when changing from a coarse grind for cafeteria to a very fine grind for espresso (those two don't mix but the press will deal with anything)

    3 in 1 instant coffee's are a lifesaver.

    Its hardly a costa or nero coffee ( starbucks is overrated imho) but we dont have the luxury of one of those near by, and the machine in the staffroom gives you the worst coffee i have ever tasted for the privilege of 20p for half a cup

    Typhoo instant? Is that the tea version of Cheez Whiz?
