These a*swipe big coffee corps are just trying to play on the green tea health benefits that have been pounded into the masses skulls over the past 10 years.
I'm sure their profitability studies show they will make money on it. If its not already at Starbucks it probably will soon be.

Lost me at "instant"... ;)
Speaking of, this reminds me a little of the recent Nick Cho blog post taking Starbucks to task for using "green coffee extract" as a euphemism for caffeine (aka "decaffeination byproduct") in its descriptions of their Refreshers energy drinks. Seems like the Nescafe product, in contrast, truly does contain green coffee.
