Q: Any good instant coffee out there?

Can't be bothered for the other (expensive, time-consuming) coffee options. Recommendations?

When I travel, I use instant coffee.  I found that Maxwell dark roast satisfies my taste enough for a few days.  Give it a try, you may like it.

I buy Nescafe Gold.  Costs twice as much as the cheap stuff by Nescafe but worth it I believe (I pay about 70 for a small jar).

You can buy it at big western style grocery stores usually (I go to Vanguard).

I wouldn't touch Maxwell house unless you paid me a lot....

 

Nescafe Gold is my standard (like TheDude).

 

If I feel like more expensive stuff, I might get a Moccona.

 

Grandos gold seems to be the same as the Nescafe Gold -b ut with a sligtly different packaging (I think it's slightly cheaper, too).

 

All available off Taobao, and should only take a couple of days for delivery Smile

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
