Instant coffee drinkers: would you please help me shop around?
Serious coffee aficionados, you may be excused. This is not a question for people with highly refined coffee tastes. It’s about instant coffee. If you don’t countenance instant coffee, this question isn’t for you, thanks.
So. I don’t like coffee very much. I drink it for its effect and not for pleasure: two cups in the morning, that’s it, period, the end. On the rare occasions when I go to a coffee shop with someone, I have tea or a soda.
I’ve been drinking Taster’s Choice for probably 40 years. All of a sudden, recently, it tastes too strong: in fact, it tastes too much like real coffee. To try to counter that effect, I have been making it weaker and weaker, but it’s not helping. The flavor is just too much.
Now, feeling quite put out about it, I’m going to have to shop around for another brand.
Question: Does anyone have a brand to recommend—maybe one that tastes like Taster’s Choice used to taste?
I know that people’s tastes differ, but I’m thinking that maybe someone who feels about coffee the way I do will mention something that he or she really likes.
Grumble, grumble. I wish people would just not mess with stuff that works, whether it’s a process, a website user interface, or a product as commonplace as instant coffee.
