Yep. Don't have time for anything more elaborate during the working week. Hibs mug, spoon and the tin. Nae milk or sugar. Usually stone cold by the time I drink it in a oner.
Doesn't taste like instant. No 1 coffee in Italy. I like the coffee in Italy. It's win win. Doesn't give you gut rot like some instants.

Bought a Lavazza machine for home but that's just at weekends. Sunday morning usually.

I use a big fuck off steam screaming bean tae cup Italian effort I have. Makes single/double / long or espresso. HP steam for Cappuccino or Lattes, which I rarely use unless guests fancy that. The irony is just today I bought a jar of Nescafe instant Decaf. The coffee I get from the machine is great but caffeine heavy so strictly cut off time of about 6pm or widnae be able to sleep. If I fancy something after that the kettle is on and the wee Decaf jar out.

Filter coffee is clearly superior to the instant stuff, but Lavazza and Illy ( Kenco Millicano is alright too) make some decent instant stuff too. They wouldn't make shite simply to protect their brands.

No doubt a degree of pretentiousness when it comes to coffee. Good instant isn't shite, it tastes alright.

Used to have a filter machine in my flat when I stayed in Edinburgh and loved brewing a decent pot of coffee at the weekends. Since I moved down south we've got one of those Tassimo machines which I get the Costa Americano pods for. These are pretty good although you don't get a very large mug out of it!

At work it's instant shite and usually Nescafe Gold Blend, not great but it gets you through the day!

I have tried Millicano, I didnt like it, just strong instant coffee, never tried the Lavazza or Illy stuff. Is the UK the only place in the world where instant coffee is no. 1?

I'm with Purple and Green here. I buy 6kg of templo espresso beans and grind them as required, last months and good in espresso machines and filter.

That's pretty much what it is. I drink 4/5 cups of coffee a day, I think I'd end up mental if I drank filtered all the time!

Used to only drink filter stuff at weekends as a treat but then we started this "coffee club" at work where folk would bring in bags of good filter coffee of varying strengths (usually strong stuff though). That is exactly what happened!

Not sure about your machine but I use 2 pods in the Nescafe Dolce Gusto when I want a large one. Heat the milk in the microwave first.

Yeah I could just use 2, would work out pretty expensive though. There is also the Kenco Americano XL pods, which do make you a decent sized cuppa, but they don't taste as nice!

I noticed when I was on holiday in Italy (stealth holiday insert) in just about every cafe or ticket office folk came in, stuck 1 euro on the counter, got served an espresso, downed in a oner and then left. A wee caffeine hit to keep them going.

I've got a pod machine now and never touch instant stuff any more. I start the day with a Dolce Gusto Americano Intenso as it's a braw kick start. But then partly because I'm tight and partly because I'm environmentally conscious (ok mostly cos I'm tight) I use refillable pods for the rest of the day, filled with Costco Colombian (£7.99 for 1.36kg). Ended up ordering a tamper from the US to get exactly the right diameter for pressing the coffee in to the pods.

I keep a stash of Aldi Americano pods too in case I'm on a work call or something and can't concentrate on filling a pod at same time.
