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.
