Drink up, boy-o

Someone just told me that the British drink instant coffee. I have no idea if this is true (or if it covers a majority of British coffee drinkers), but isn't it interesting that it's completely opposite of British and American cultural stereotypes? Shouldn't the British--who were primarily responsible for introducing coffee to Europe--be coffee snobs, eschewing mere instant? And shouldn't the Fast Food Americans be swilling Folgers and such?

Hard science at its best, I know.
