Instant coffee? Blech. That stuff is absolutely disgusting. All it is is ground coffee loaded with preservatives and shiz that makes it taste terrible.

But it’s coffee. And it’s better than cheese. So if I was offered a cup of instant coffee, I would be content. ^_^

^^Agreed, though at Church I make that coffee and last week drank four cups of it so as not to pour it all down the drain.

I have only had fresh ground coffee a couple times, but it is sooo much better than pre-ground.

My dad has come up with the ultimate way to brew coffee.

You need:
-a kettle (or any way to boil water)
-two mugs
-a funnel/coffee filter
-a spoon
-coffee

Boil some water. Dispense the desired amount of coffee into one mug. When the water has boiled, pour it into the mug with coffee in it. Stir with a spoon for a few seconds.

Let the coffee sit in the mug for some time. Then, pour the coffee grains/water mix through the filter into your other mug. Enjoy.

This method ensures that every single grain of coffee contacts the water.

Quite recently, while watching a documentary on TV, I discovered an extremely wonderful recipe for Coffee that's a whole lot of fun. You will need :

6 bags of instant coffee
A coffee cup full of scalding-hot water. Just add the bags of instant coffee into the coffee cup and although you will have the worst-tasting drink on earth in front of you, if you drink it you will get an incredible burst of caffeine. Aside from that recipe, though, I agree with you- Instant Coffee is filth.

Looks up at his hero the Commander-in-Chief
Saying, "Tell me great hero, but please make it brief
Is there a hole for me to get sick in?"

The Commander-in-Chief answers him while chasing a fly
Saying, "Death to all those who would whimper and cry"
And dropping a bar bell he points to the sky
Saying, "The sun's not yellow it's chicken"
