Frequently Asked Questions
What is instant coffee, is instant coffee made from actual coffee beans?
The main distinction is that regular ground coffee is simply roasted beans that you need to ground in a grinder or get pre-grinded once and then brewed with a coffee maker or espresso machine, but the process does not takes anything less than a french press coffee style that uses a cafetière or coffee plunger. While instant coffee, on the other hand, is made from actual coffee beans, ranging from the common robusta variety to arabica beans, and is actually pre-brewed coffee that is processed through freeze-drying or spray drying to make coffee crystals that are a soluble form of the original coffee for a quick cuppa.
Is instant coffee natural?
It is up to the manufacturers to mix various artificial and non-chemical or natural blends of various herbal and fruity ingredients in the making of instant soluble coffee for unique flavours. It may sound strange, but most people prefer special kinds of luxury instant coffee to traditional standard crystal coffee. This is another reason that most artificial coffees are cheap so, keep this in mind when shopping for the best instant coffee.
