It is! Its cheaper since you can brew a batch twice and still have good coffee, and healthier since its more fresh than instant. Although instant coffee may still have the anti-oxidants, it already has been reduced as it has been processed.
am a coffee lover and every morning its the very first thing i deal with. most of the time im in a hurry because of school so i go for instant coffee. but i have a stock of brewed coffees and sometimes am taking it as a morning buddy.
