instant coffee gets such an undeserved bad rap. We now have a coffee culture that has become so accustomed to fresh ground and brewed coffee that we typically don’t have to consider instant. But what about the days where you’re really pressed for time? What about the days you don’t want to leave for work with a mess in the kitchen? What about the days you’re roughing it in the wilderness? I’ve witness people at campsites have full on coffee rigs, complete with grinders, scales, filters. Folks, it is never, ever that serious. And today’s instant coffee options are not Sanka or Folgers. We’ve taste tested few options, some were really bad, some were exceptional. NOTE - The main mistake that people make with using an instant is that they use entirely too much water, thus making a weak, Keurig-like cup of coffee. All of these instants only require 8 - 10 ounces of water per cup
@starbucks Via - Italian Roast - this is one I keep on deck at home and my car. Starbucks experiments with plenty of coffees, and with good reason, Via remains available everywhere. Full bodied, bold, and outstanding with cream @traderjoes
Nose - upon pouring water on it - smelled like nothing. Let it sit for a few and I began to get notes of peanut butter
Tongue - super bitter. I got no notes past that initial bite🤷🏾♂️ Voilà X Lüna - Juicebox this one was the standout. Bright, juicy, and everything a bean from Kenya should be. This tastes like it would be awesome as iced coffee as well and with cream it tastes like dessert. And left no sediment! @voila.coffee and @enjoylunacoffee, you now have my attention. This is one you should keep in your pantry
Nose - blackberry, cherry pie
Tongue - light, tart, berry lemonade #coffee#coffeetime ☕️ #coffeedaily#coffeestagram#baristagram#localcoffee#butfirstcoffee#coffeeshots#specialtycoffee#coffeegeek#mixology#coffee_inst#starbucks#traderjoes#voilacoffee#lunacoffee
Meet Miel. One of the baristas we met during the #pasigcoffeecrawlseries . She's the friendly face behind the counter at Nicto's, preparing their exclusive Christmas-inspired latte, the Holiday Cup. Her favorite part of the job (and this is her first job btw!) is interacting with the customers and becoming friends with the regulars. So the next time you're there, or if it's your first time to drop by, say hi! When it comes to ordering a drink in a new coffee shop like Nicto's, Miel says you shouldn't be afraid to ask the barista for a recommendation -- that's the key to getting a cup of coffee that you're gonna be happy with.
