Instantly Gratified

This country seems to be overrun with coffee snobs who look down on the very idea of drinking instant. I can't even bring my goddamn mini jar of instant coffee to work without getting pained expressions from all the people hanging around the friggin percolator for their all-organic free trade coffee. Nothing wrong with the fancy "real thing" but there's nothing wrong with instant either. These people seem to think that the Europeans would be poo-pooing the instant stuff but I've lived all over the UK and Madrid and everyone drinks the stuff at home and work... a real coffee is a treat you give yourself once in a while but everyone enjoys a fresh cup of the instant (particularly the stuff that starts with an N... don't want to be sounding like I'm being sponsored here). So, in closing, while I get back to enjoying my instant, get over yourselves, you wannabes. —Someone is full of shit and it isn't my instant coffee
