Best instant coffee
Coffee is one of those commodities that has many different meanings to each person. To some it is part of their morning routine and to others it symbolizes the setting of a fun social rendezvous. Coffeehouses have been serving people coffee and other similar beverages for hundreds and hundreds of years. These functioned as meeting places for intellectuals such as Voltaire, Rousseau, and Diderot, who regularly spent time at Café Procope in Paris. This is also debatably the birthplace of the first modern encyclopedia, the Encyclopédie. It is remarkable how far the coffeehouses establishment has evolved over the years. In similar ways, the idea of coffee making has changed as well. We can now enjoy the same quality coffee in our own homes with machines such as Nespresso and packets like Starbucks Via. But how do you know what to choose and what is the best? We’ve put together a guide to benefits of each and what is the best version of instant coffee for your lifestyle.
This is basically the freeze-dried version of your ground coffee. The best part is that the perfect amount of coffee comes in these little packets to be dissolved in a standard sized 8 ounce coffee mug. However you have room to add more or less and customize the coffee experience depending on whether you like your coffee stronger or weaker. They also travel great and come in every single coffee flavor imaginable.
Instant coffee machines
These single cup brewing systems are continuing to become more and more popular. In these machines the pod, like Nespresso capsules, is inserted and pierced. The water is then heated up and pressurized to flow through the pierced pod and ends up in your coffee mug as a perfectly brewed cup of coffee or other hot beverage. As system patents expired this year on companies like Nespresso and Keurig, more brands have been jumping on the instant coffee machine band wagon. There have also been lots of developments about the ecological impact of the disposal of used capsules. Nespresso has responded to this by providing recycling programs available at Nespresso Boutiques. Keurig developed a reusable filter that you put in the machine and add your own ground coffee.
Both of these methods offer plenty of options for coffee and other hot beverages. However you are not just limited to the hot temperature, Starbucks has an instant iced coffee packet as well and the instant machines provide the same iced experience. It mainly depends on your lifestyle, if you are someone who is not around enough to enjoy an instant coffee machine then the packets may be a better choice. Or you may decide to have a balance between the two. Either way, the enjoyable coffeehouse beverage experience is now available instantly in your home.
