This evening my coffee maker machine committed suicide! I am frantic and near tears! No coffee tomorrow morning! AAAaaaaaarrrrgh! I will probably take a handful of Java beans and suck on them tomorrow.
Ps: Please don't send flowers. It will just make me cry!
His reply was what I would have given had he not - at least the part about turkish style. That, in fact, was my method-of-choice for coffee for years - real coffee fresh brewed in your cup. It doesn't get any better. Make sure it's finely ground so it settles and stays settled.
Now as for "instant". Starbucks came out with some "instant" coffee that's just about real. It's also a bit costly. Don't worry about that as the turkish option is just as good.
Now here's some fun trivia (relevant because Daniel Pfeffer is Israeli): I had an Israeli friend - I met her at a Dude Ranch in upstate NY when we were both about 16. I learned something interesting: in Israel, they call all instant coffee 'nescafe'. Not the brand, but as a pun: 'nes', in Hebrew, means "miracle" - as she explained it was considered a miracle if it tasted anything like coffee.

If you have a metal workshop in your garage - and what real man doesn't?* - you could quickly make a percolator: This old Tony[^] it shouldn't take you too long - the video is only 30 minutes.
* Me. I don't even have the garage.

Coffee and ice are all that I really need. Coffee, well, for the caffeine, and ice for the seltzer. Both are my favorite liquid refreshments during the day, especially while I am head's down coding, etc.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Ah yes, one of the benefits of living with a strong-willed wife. We have his and hers coffee-makers since we don't drink the same recipe and the times one of us has had to wait while the other's brewed weren't... pretty.
