Folgers Classic Roast instant coffee

I drink a lot of coffee — primarily Eight O'Clock 100% Colombian (whole bean) brewed in a Cuisinart Grind and Brew Thermal coffee maker. I also get up a good deal earlier than everyone else in the household. And when I don't want to wake everybody up with the loud coffee grinder, having a jar of instant on-hand is a life-saver.

Most instant coffee I've tried tastes like what it is: a reconstituted, reheated cup of previously brewed weak bitterness. But Folgers Classic Roast surprised me with its depth of flavor.

It's a little too bitter when I make it black; its fascinating richness comes out best when a heaping tablespoon is mixed into a large mug filled with hot skim milk. In fact, I like it enough this way that I sometimes make a cup even when the coffee pot is not empty, and I don't know a better recommendation than that.
