I belong to the small minority of those who prefer instant over freshly brewed. That being said, I strictly purchase Nescafe Clasico. My favourite <a href="http://www.bevoost.com/?p=662"&g... coffee recipe</a> is for Cafe Batido. Pour equal parts (e.g. 1 tablespoon) instant coffee and sugar into a cup. Add just a few drops of water or milk. It is very important not to add too much liquid! Rigorously stir for a few minutes until the mixture becomes a light-colored paste. Add hot water or milk, and foam will form at the top.
