4 Ways to Make the Best Instant Coffee at Home

Whether you like to keep it basic or fancy a tall glass of instant iced coffee or latte, take a look at the following methods and get started!

  • Method 1: How to Make Your Basic Instant Coffee

Ingredients: Instant coffee, water, cold water, hot water, milk/creamer, sugar and spices

Process: First, you need to heat up a cup of water. For one serving, you’ll need 240mL of water. Next, you need to add 1-2 teaspoons of your instant coffee to a mug. Check the coffee container’s label to understand how much you need to add in order to derive the best taste. Dissolve the instant coffee with a tablespoon of cold water. This seemingly avoidable step improves the flavour of the coffee instead of shocking it directly with hot water. Now, pour the hot water into the mug, and leave some space for milk/creamer in case you do not like black coffee. On the other hand, if you fancy a richer taste, you can consider adding sugar or spices, such as cinnamon, cocoa powder and allspice.

Finally, give your instant coffee a good stir and make sure the ingredients are uniformly homogenised before relishing its superior taste.

  • Method 2: How to Make Instant Iced Coffee

Ingredients: Instant coffee, water, cold water, hot water, milk/creamer, sugar and spices, ice cubes

Process: To begin with, heat about 120mL of water in a microwave for 30 seconds-1 minute and stir 2 teaspoons of instant coffee in it until the coffee granules dissolve completely. In case you want sugar or any spice, add it before you mix the milk or cold water and ice. Sugar, allspice, cinnamon and other such spices mix much better in warm water.

Next, add 120mL of cold water or milk to the warm mixture. If you want a creamier texture, go for cold milk instead of water. Keep stirring until all the ingredients are perfectly mixed.

Finally, pour your instant cold coffee over some ice cubes and enjoy!

Expert tip: Gulp it down before the ice melts and waters down the taste.

  • Method 3: How to Make Instant Latte

Ingredients: Instant coffee, hot water, sugar and spices (optional), milk, sealed jar, hot milk

Process: In the first step, you need to mix about a tablespoon of your instant coffee in half a cup of hot water. Now, if you like your latte flavoured or sweet, consider adding a bit of sugar, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, flavoured coffee syrup or vanilla extract. Stir until all the ingredients so far mix well. Next, you need to pour milk into a microwave-proof jar and seal the lid. Shake the sealed jar well for about a minute. This step will froth the milk and conjure that classic latte texture and flavour. After that, remove the lid of the jar and allow the milk to heat up inside the microwave. You’ll see the foam rises to the top of the warm milk.

Moving on, just pour the milk into the mug with the coffee base. Keep stirring the mixture until you observe a uniform colour. Spoon the milk froth from the jar and place it over the latte. You can also add a dollop of whipped cream and get that extra punch of richness to the flavour profile. To take it further up a notch, sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder, nutmeg, cinnamon or any other spice of your choice and enjoy that delicious cup of the best instant coffee at home!

  • Method 4: How to Make an Instant Coffee Shake

Ingredients: Blender, instant coffee, ice, milk, vanilla extract, sugar, chocolate syrup/chips

Process: Plug in your blender, and add 6 ice cubes, 180mL of milk, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon of sugar. At this stage, you can also add about 2 teaspoons of chocolate syrup for a richer taste. Blend this mixture for 3-4 minutes or until it becomes smooth. If the consistency gets too thin for your liking, add in an ice cube. In case the consistency leans towards the thicker side, add a bit of milk and blend again. Next, pour the coffee into a tall glass and garnish with chocolate chips or a drizzle of chocolate syrup. You can also dust it with a bit of cocoa powder or a drizzle of caramel, as per your taste and requirement.

So, there you go! Follow these simple methods and make yourself the perfect cup of instant coffee at home at any time! However, if some of these methods still seem tedious, you can get the work done with Sleepy Owl’s Instant Coffee range.
