    90% of 'barista made coffee' is no better than bog standard instant (see the ubiquitous dreadfulness of Starbucks).

    It probably works the same way as being a gin wanker. If you aren't drinking the coffee 'neat' (I guess as an espresso) you're not really getting the benefit of any additional quality. Just like you may as well stick with a bog standard gin if you're going to be dumping tonic in it.

    The difference is fairly evident to me, personally.

    I've a Krups Espresseria. Coffee is spot on and just press a button.

    Starbucks blonde roast is approaching coffee.

    There are some decent instants about. We have a nespresso machine in work now which does the job pretty well and cheap as (non-nespresso pods).

    The difference between instant and even the shittiest Starbucks roast is absolutely enormous, and I totally enjoy Starbucks coffee so my standards are low

    Coffee is disgusting, the smell alone makes me want to vomit.

    I don't mind the odd coffee but I couldn't drink in the same way I do tea (which is constantly, rarely ever letting the cup get cold).

    The smell of coffee is delicious and I like the flavour of coffee in things but whenever I've tried to just.... drink coffee I don't know why I'm bothering.

    I really don't get the "real coffee is a faff" thing. I'm lazy as fuck and even I think it's worthwhile. In a cafetiere you just put hot water and coffee in a thing, leave it, then pour it in another thing, vs putting hot water and coffee in a thing.

    Spose it depends how rank you find instant, which for me is QUITE rank.
