I hate instant and I only have percolated when camping. I use automatic drip. My favorite coffee is made by the Italian brand LaVazza.  It is called crema e gusto. I have to special order it: http://www.wholelattelove.com/Lavazza/crema_e_gusto.cfm

Not a fan of coffee in general, but any kind tastes good with creamer and add ins!

I have always bought folgers coffee.  I don't like instant.  Does not taste the same.  I am sitting here drinking my morning coffee now. I have to leave in a little while so I have to to finish it.  May God bless each of you and keep you safe.

I do not drink instant coffee, even when camping.  If I had to pick between the three I would say Folgers but this is my last resort.  I rather pay more and get better coffee; Van Houte, Starbucks... :)

over the past 50 + years, I have seen all those brands in my parents' house. My dad drinks it.
I do not drink coffee; never have; never will. When I  was a girl, my grandma sat us 3 girls down to sample it. My sisters drink it. I didn't acquire a taste for it and I hae no regrets.

Maxwell house is the best in a coffee maker, but I cannot stand their instant. Generic instant seems to be best if I have to settle for instant.

I like the higher priced coffees and use them in my Keurig.  I think they are worth the extra money and no matter how you look at it you are saving yourself money from buying coffee at a coffee shop.

My favorite to buy from a mass merchant retailer such as Wal-mart or Target is Eight O'Clocks French Vanilla.  It's not to expensive but it has just enough hint of fancy making me feel like I'm getting a real treat.  Most of the time I buy Folgers.  This last time I picked up Maxwell house and I'm not to big on it.  My mother-in-law and I attended a coffee event at our local library.  A local woman put on a huge spread and lectured about coffee and the different ways to brew it.  The best tasting coffee I ever had was from there..  Keep in mind this gal roasts her own beans.  She made and served the coffee in a Tadi.  I put a Lindor Truffle in the bottom of my coffee cup... poured the coffee over that and used half and half for creamer.  Oh and one more thing I found fascinating... She used cinnamon syrup in the grounds when she brewed it in a regular coffee maker.  So I sprinkled cinnamon into the Folgers grounds and guess what?  I had the same results.  OH YUM.

I love coffee but now a days, I drink it occasionally and the best brands out there are the one that have the colombian coffee beans. That is from what I have tried personally.

There are a lot of instant coffees out there.Starbucks came out with one and I think it's pretty good compared to a brewed cup. it's called VIA. i think it's a trial and error thing, you have to try a few to see what you like best. See if you can get a sample from some you are interested in, go to the website and ask or they may offer you a coupon to try it too.

use a drip maker. I hate instant coffee. It does not taste anywhere near the same.  I almost always buy maxwell house, will buy folgers, sometimes.  I like starbucks the best but way to pricey, for most occasions, have on special occasions.
