Unfortunately, there are times when you have to use it, like traveling, camping, or boat overnights with non coffee drinkers who don't have a maker or pot, or to have on hand in a power outage. My experience is that most of it is awful awful awful, but I still need my morning (and afternoon most days) jolt. Those Starbucks VIA packets are not that great, killer expensive and those little packets are a PITA.
SO, any thoughts or recommendations on an instant that's a least bearable? I figure if such a thing exists, y'all would know what it is.
