How did the Starbuck's Challenge go ?

Great instant coffee? - you think !
So I drove over to a local Starbucks to take the test.
Inside was a small table with two metal carafes, and mini paper taster cups.
The server poured two cups for me to try.
I thought immediately that the darker looking one was the "real brewed stuff "
Wrong. It was the instant - gross, thick and chalky.
Did I make my point ?
And, these slender packets are expensive, about 80 cents each.
I'd rather have Dunkin Donuts ( really dislike D & D), but better than
this instant. I really love good coffee, if you are out there and would buy this...
is it just convenient, or do you like the taste ?
