And if TV is to be believed, 1 cup of American coffee makes people hyperactive / crazy :?

    Does anyone in America drink instant coffee? Over here it's what most people drink at home, but going off American TV shows and movies it looks like everyone has a coffee maker (and moans when someone's finished off the last of the jug!) is this true? Or just another thing TV makes me believe? :lol:

    Juliet - asking the important questions that really matter

    No hard numbers, but it’s pretty clear that in the U.S., the consumption of instant coffee — which was always looked down upon as a second rate beverage — has fallen in the last 10-20 years. If you look at trends worldwide, consumption of instant coffee tends to be higher where tea is the primary drink of choice.

    I don't drink coffee, but the people in my office drink coffee. Is instant coffee the coffee you place in a coffee maker and run hot water over the ground up coffee? That's what everyone drinks in my office and all the other places I worked before. If that's instant coffee, what is non-instant coffee?

    Side note: When you look up antonyms for instant, because I don't think non-instant is a word, you get future, old, old-fashioned, past, slow, tardy, unimportant, delayed, eventual, late, and later. None of those sound right in front of coffee. Future coffee?

    :lol::lol: I don't drink coffee either and your post makes perfect sense to me. Future coffee sounds correct.

    No that ain't instant, friend! Instant is kinda like horrible hot kool-aid - crystals mixed with boiling water. Not cool, bro, literally or figuratively.

    I think most North Americans use some form of brewed coffee - hot water passed through ground coffee beans. I would say tv and movies are better my pretty truthful, Juliet!

    Instant coffee is nasty..... I take the Starbucks kind camping- convenient for about just that.
    Otherwise - home, brew pot everyday - most people I know have one, if not use it daily.

    I'm pretty sure instant coffee is a typical English thing. Mayne because of the tea and all.

    Over here everyone has a coffee machine.

    Stuck with instant coffee, but against my will. :evil: although I have turned to peppermint tea recently.

    Have you ever been just about to tap on a thread to open it, hiccuped and accidently tapped the wrong thread instead... Because that's what just happened here... :D

    Anyhow, while I'm here - most people I know (in Canada) drink brewed coffee. I also prefer brewed coffee if I'm having coffee, but I normally drink tea - I drank too much coffee in University so I sort of went off of it.

    My father, however, drinks the instant stuff... But he is from the UK... Soooo ya. :wink:

    On the coffee topic, I as an American do not drink instant coffee while at home we have a nifty Keurig. The only time I subject myself to instant coffee is when I'm deployed or back-country camping.

    Ooh so it's true! I hate coffee but I know my other half and every other coffee drinker I know prefers non instant, maybe Brits are just cheap when it comes to buying coffee makers! :P

    My mum and dad bought a coffee maker when I was younger but only used it about 10 times if I remember rightly! the lazy gits :lol:

    brewed, most americans have some sort of coffee machine. I do however keep a jar of instant on hand in case I run out of brewable coffee, so instant in an emergency only.

    We have a Keurig machine in our office, I drink a minimum of 1 cup a day from this device, is that considered instant coffee?

    I am the proud owner of a Nespresso Virtuoline and enjoy making frothy, milky beverages from said machine.

    That is all.
