I worked for Starbucks for seven years. My wife worked there for 14 years. We met there. We married while we worked there. We had kids while we worked there. We are the family that Starbucks built. As you might guess, we both love coffee.
For many years, brewing coffee was a ritual that I appreciated. I'm mostly over that now, although I do still brew coffee from time to time. I wondered if there was an instant coffee I could ever love. During the week, I find myself so busy and focused on work and trying to eek out every possible bit of efficiency with my time. I experimented with at least a dozen different instant coffees to see if I could find one that rivals brewed coffee. Almost all of them were terrible. But I found a couple that I like but one stands above. Cafe Tastle Gold Freeze Dried Instant Coffee.
