Instant Coffees ; Which is the best?

What is instant coffee?

The popularity of soluble coffee is largely due to its convenience and speed. Your coffee can be ready to drink in seconds with just two ingredients.

Unlike standard coffee, instant coffee does not require a coffee maker or espresso machine to extract its flavors. Simply mix a spoonful of granulated instant coffee with hot water to enjoy your cup. It dissolves automatically in contact with water, which is why it is called soluble coffee.

Instant coffee also offers the benefit of preserving its freshness longer and can easily be used in your recipes to add a coffee taste to your preparations!

Did you know that there are two distinct manufacturing processes available? Either atomized or freeze-dried.


The difference between atomized & freeze-dried

Instant coffee is actually a dehydrated filter coffee concentrate. Water extraction can be done either by atomization or by freeze-drying.

Atomized coffee is pulverized into crumbs by a jet of hot, dry air.

Freeze-dried coffee is dried cold and then broken into fine particles. This technique allows the coffee to retain most of its nutritional and taste properties since the particles are not exposed to high temperatures.
