  1. NO
    K-cups are not made with instant coffee. K-Cups contain finely-ground coffee with a filter inside, sealed by tinfoil to keep the coffee inside even after use.

  2. A Keurig coffee pod contains ground coffee. The Keurig system forces very hot water to flow through the pod and into your cup. That sounds good but the problem is this: although about 30% of ground coffee is soluble you really don’t want all of it to dissolve. About 25% is good, the rest makes flavor defects. A good drip system like Melitta gets it just right, Keurig over extracts. That said, each to his own. For some people it doesn’t seem to matter. Keurig is a very convenient way to make only as much coffee as you want.

  3. No. A Keurig machine uses a small pod of regularly ground coffee that brews by infusing hot water across the grounds and extracting the drinkable coffee. The fact that it does so quickly does not make it “instant coffee” in the accepted definition for “instant”. If you were to dissect a used coffee pod you would find it contained wet grounds. Instant coffee dissolves back into liquid form and doesn’t leave wet grounds.
