How To Make A Cup Of Instant Coffee?

As much as we would love to have a hot cup of coffee whenever we need caffeine, most of us lack an in-home baristas setup.

That means that from time to time, we resort to instant coffee. and, while it will never be the best cup of coffee we've ever had, you can bet it will be as satisfying as possible.

Fill your mug halfway with cold water, then add the instant coffee and mix until fully incorporated. Fill it almost to the brim with hot water, stir once more, and serve.

As instant coffee granules are dissolved directly in hot water, the amylum in the granules hardens, imparting a powdery flavor and consistency. By first dissolving the granules in cold water, they dissolve more gently when added to hot water. The flavor is so authentic, you will want to brew coffee again.

Recipes using Nescafe Gold to make black, milk, or iced coffee

  • Unsweetened coffee
    1 tsp water
    1 teaspoon powdered Nescafe Gold coffee sugar to taste

    In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Fill the mug halfway with coffee powder. If you want a stronger coffee, add 1.5 teaspoon coffee powder. Add sugar to taste; I use 1.5 teaspoon sugar. Wait approximately 30 seconds once the water begins to boil before adding the water to the mug and stirring it. Your morning cup of black coffee is now prepared. Its scent will immediately perk up your day.

  • Coffee with milk
    1 mug milk
    1/4 cup distilled water
    1 teaspoon powdered Nescafe Gold coffee sugar to taste

    In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. If it reaches a boil, turn off the heat and add the coffee powder, stirring well. In a separate pan, heat the milk. To begin, pour the coffee liquid and sugar into a mug. I recommend 1.5 teaspoon sugar and stirring until fully dissolved. Pour in the milk and continue to stir continuously. Refresh it by sprinkling a small amount of coffee powder on top. Additionally, you should whisk the mixture to create a foamy topping.
  • Iced coffee
    1 cup chilled milk
    1 teaspoon powdered Nescafe Gold coffee
    2-3 cubes of ice, sugar to taste

    Combine the coffee powder, sugar (1.5 tsp), and cold milk in a blender and blend for 1 minute. Open the lid and add the ice cubes; blend for an additional 30 seconds to crush the ice cubes. Pour it into a tall glass and toast to your success!!!
