Instant Coffee

The title  itself would make you scream. But, instant coffee does exist and is ok.

I am lazy and not a morning person and cleaning and making elaborate coffee with the machine is hard. Here is what I do…

  • Instant Coffee from Costco ( Brand Nescafe Tasters Choice )
  • Instant Columbian Coffee   ( From Ralphs )
  • Organic Brown Sugar or Regular Sugar
  • Milk Frother ( from amazon – aerolatte )
  • Organic Half and Half
  • 1 tablespoon measure

Warm water in microwave about 1 and 1/2 minutes. Add in 1 tablespoon measure of Nescafe Tasters Choice; Add in 1/4 tablespoon on the Columbian Instant ( this is bitter and so the quantity is very small); Add in 1 tablespoon sugar.

Blend with the frother for about 30 sec to a minute. The coffee will froth and will blend well.

Add in half and half as much as you like.

Indians have coffee with milk and sugar; you can leave out the sugar if you prefer.

Voila, the coffee is ready in few minutes. No filter to throw away, no additional cleaning.



This is picture of green coffee. My mothers family is from a place that grows coffee in India. This picture reminds me of my time hanging around the kitchen wood fire, drinking coffee and having hot Dosa and chutney or akki roti and curry.
