    I really like this article and I really love instant coffee.
    When I was a child we used to go camping as a family and my parents would let us have a cup of instant coffee heated from the campfire and we loved it.
    Now any time I drink it, it brings back those memories of the good times. So did this article.
    Thanks Again

    Hi Tej

    Oh boy – I think I must be one of those that can’t live without coffee! Lol! We also have Nescafe here, it’s a bit pricey in comparison to other local brands. My Mum introduced me to Jacobs coffee – it’s very good. Have you tried it? However, I must say, nothing beats the real thing!

      No, I haven’t tried Jacobs coffee yet. Thanks for the suggestion, I will give it a try. I know the feeling about being one of those that can’t live without coffee and I also agree with you that nothing beats the real thing. 🙂

      Thanks for commenting and for dropping by.

    Hi Tej, Folgers is my favorite instant coffe because of its smell. Yes you are right, with instant coffee no mess to clean. It is interesting to know the history of instant coffee after years and years of drinking it. Your post was great! Do you consider this new coffee pods an instant coffee too?

      Hi Timothy, I am glad you liked the article. 

      Actually I don’t consider the new coffee pods as instant coffee. The reason is that instant coffee is basically dehydrated coffee. So once you put the hot water over the instant coffee powder it re-hydrates into the drink. The new coffee pods contain coffee grounds over which water is poured at a high pressure. So it’s basically brewing the coffee drink rather than re-hydrating it. 

      The other reason is the difference in the caffeine levels in the drinks. Coffee brewed using the new pods contains more caffeine and tastes stronger than instant coffee.

      Hope this helps. Cheers,
