Are you someone who can’t start their day without coffee? Is the word ‘morning’ synonymous with the word ‘coffee’ for you? Us, too!
Life can often get too busy to take time out to take a break and enjoy the little things, like a cup of coffee. This is where instant coffee comes in. It’s easily soluble in water or milk, depending on your preference, and is the quickest solution for your daily caffeine dose. Not to mention, it tastes just as good as regular coffee.

Here are some reasons why instant coffee should make its way to your kitchen shelf:
1. It's the easiest version of coffee to prepare and can be made using creative recipes.
When the morning bustle gets too much, instant coffee, as the name suggests, is the perfect way to get your daily caffeine fix. Being easily soluble, instant coffee has gradually become the go-to drink of the A.M. Apart from the regular ways of making instant coffee, one can get creative and try new ways to enjoy the flavour and rush.

2. It’s easy to store and doesn’t need any extra accessories.
Many coffee drinkers and connoisseurs even in today’s day and age, use coffee machines, French presses, coffee grinders, aeropresses, foam machines, filters, frothers and so many more such accessories to make one perfect cup of coffee. While all this depends on people’s personal preferences and coffee drinking habits, they end up taking up more space, time and become a somewhat investment. Instant coffee, on the other hand, simply needs water or milk along with your favourite cup to drink from. It’s extremely low maintenance and a busy or lazy person’s best friend.
3. It can be used in desserts too.
Being a powered version of coffee, instant coffee can be used to make interesting desserts at home. One can use instant coffee to bake cakes, cupcakes, cookies or brownies; make puddings, mousses and ice cream; use it as a topping on certain desserts and so much more. The flavoured instant coffee options available these days has made the process of using them in desserts that much more fun. For true coffee lovers, having coffee in any and every form is a treat.
4. It’s ideal for avid as well as novice coffee drinkers.
If your home has different types of coffee drinkers, instant coffee is one thing that will suit all. The easy preparation requires no expertise, and yet it gives the wholesome feeling that coffee does. It’s an ideal and hassle-free option for consumption for your whole household.
5. It’s perfect for when working from home.
Whether it’s at the start of your day or an afternoon energiser, having instant coffee at home makes it easier and quicker for you to get your fix without wasting any time, especially if you have to make your coffee on your own. It’s all your need for that instant boost while working at home.
6. It can be had exactly the way you like it.
You can add as much powder as you need to make it as strong or as mild as you like, add water or milk, have it hot or cold - the choice is completely yours. Whether it’s winter or summer, whether it’s a rainy day or just a super early morning - instant coffee is quick, easy and hits the right spot.
