How to Make Perfect Instant Coffee
Did you read my post on my favorite beverages? If not, you can read it here.
In the favorites post, I mentioned that I like #Folgers instant coffee. Wow.. the comments received about how bad instant coffee was surprised me. One reader asked that I demonstrate my method of creating a drinkable mug of instant coffee.
I prefer #Folgers but #Taster’s Choice is a close second in my book. I haven’t found another brand that I really care for and some I would do without before drinking.
My Instant Coffee Directions……
Grab your favorite mug! Yes, drinking out of a mug you like does matter.
Place 1 heaping teaspoon of instant coffee in mug.
The trick to instant coffee is the temperature of the water. It needs to be just this side of boiling. Too cool and the coffee doesn’t completely dissolve leaving a film and granular feeling. Thus the NASTY reputation! Too hot (boiling) makes the coffee bitter. I have an instant hot dispenser on my #Cuisinart coffee maker that is perfect for instant coffee (and hot chocolates).
I fill my mug about 1/4 full and then stir the coffee until completely dissolved. I also add my #Splenda at this point.
Once completely dissolved, I add the remaining hot water..leaving room for my creamer.
And this my friends…is how I enjoy my instant coffee whether at home or on the road. I always have a baggie of single serve instant coffee packets as well as a handful of Splenda packages.
