French Press v Instant Coffee

So, I got back into the French Press thing this past week. I go back and forth between the French press and the normal pot. But, that’s not really the point of this post…

My question is what’s the difference in the French press and instant coffee? Why is French press hipster and European while instant coffee is rural and poor?

It seems to me the only difference is if the coffee is dissolved all the way. That’s what happens with instant. With a French press I have to clean the Bodum out. So, coffee snobs…err…I mean connoisseurs, what’s the difference in them? If they made high quality instant coffee would that appease you?
