Which coffee do you like best? Instant or Brewed? For me it's both, because I am really fond of drinking coffee. If I had a chance I would drink brewed one. But it's mostly instant for me since we don't have a coffee maker yet. How about you guys? Well I'm going to sleep earlier, so I hope to see your replies tomorrow. Goodnight guys!(Or good day, it's GMT+8:00 here in the Philippines.)

I don't have a coffee maker either so I make instant coffee or go to starbucks. I do think brewed coffee is better and one day I'll buy a coffee maker so I can enjoy that.

Brewed coffee taste much better, by far and away. However, I guess I'm lazy and will tolerate drinking instant coffee. Besides, I happen to live in Singapore, a country where you can buy '3-in-1' coffee, which is basically bags of powder that you add hot water to and hey presto, you actually have milk coffee that has already been sweetened.

I prefer brewed. Brewed gives you flexibility. Not to mention, it has less preservatives in it. .

I prefer brewed coffee. It seems to give me more of a jump start than instant coffee. Drinking instant coffee, to me, is like drinking hot chocolate.

Oh, thanks. I really loved the way brewed coffee tastes like. You can't get that satisfaction with instant coffee, but I do things with my coffee that makes me satisfied. Anyways, thanks for the reply.

brewed coffee is richer in aroma.but that takes time to prepare, so i prefer instant coffee instead.

I do enjoy coffee pretty regularly however it is best if it is brewed in a coffee maker. I have instant coffee once in a while but it doesn't really have the same quality flavor as when it is brewed. I drink coffee every day and I make it in my own coffee maker. Sometimes if I am out I will drink instant but that doesn't happen too much.

Can you please give me your coffee maker? My dad is an instant coffee guy, so he doesn't listen to my plea of buying a coffee machine. Well, guess I'll find some good beans and settle for the "sink it like tea" tip from our fellow myLot-ers. Happy myLot-ing, and hey, thanks for the response. This discussion is like months ago so I don't expected someone would still post a response. Have a nice day.

To me, instant coffee tastes like dirt. I truly taste an enormous difference. I haven't had instant in many, many years. I've even made it by placing a thin cloth or a strainer over a cup, piling in the grounds, and pouring heavily boiling water over it very slowly, and it's not all that bad. Thank you for reminding me to set up the coffee for the morning and put it on the timer so it'll be ready when I get up.

Sadly, I can't find any coffee beans near the vicinity. Even the nearby grocery doesn't have any, so I'll have to settle to instant. Thanks for the response.
