    Instant coffee for pour-over?

    I just ordered a Bee House pour over "cone brewer" but I still have a mostly full jar of Choc-full-o'Nuts instant coffee. Should I use it? I'm not throwing it away so I'm either using it for instant or for pour over.

    Use it if you need to dye any of your clothes brown.

    Not that I'd endorse drinking instant coffee, but I don't think your Beehouse will work for that. Doesn't it have to be steeped/dissolved, rather than having the hot water run through it?

    I guess I'll look around for recipes that use instant coffee.

    Why not throw it out, and start with some real coffee? Surely, you can't be any cheaper than I am, but even I know enough to stay away from instant coffee.

    I've had Dunkin Donuts coffee, which isn't instant, and it didn't strike me as special. I'm not really a coffee lover. It's just OK and I'm only bothering with the pour over method because filtered coffee is healthier.

    That begs the question then, why you're drinking coffee at all. Please don't take this wrong, but it sounds like you could take it or leave it, so why even bother?

    Because it's healthy. I like fruit smoothies, cocoa, and malted milk shakes but having one with every meal may be sugar and dairy overload especially if I want to have cheese or a piece of fruit too. I started drinking tea when I heard it was healthy and the same with coffee. I don't really mind. Actually, now that I add cocoa powder to my coffee, I'd actually like it if I added some sugar but it's no big deal.

    I'm leaning towards the iced coffee. But since I'd like to experiment with one of the more interesting flavored coffee beans for the pour over, like a light roast, which I may not like, I may want to fix the flavor with my instant.
