Water Secret for your Instant Coffee
Get this: a lot of people may not know that there's a lot of difference when you use freshly boiled water than that from thermos or water dispenser. Believe me! It affects the taste of your coffee because the freshly boiled water dissolves the powder more than that which are not freshly boiled. Plus, such water elicits the tasty and yummy aroma of your coffee.
How does it work? Well, every time you boil the water, oxygen escapes and the water changes taste. You get exactly the same effect when you cook or make a tea.
Now, let's get into the coffee itself. How many teaspoons of coffee do you need to achieve that great taste?
Remember this: Measuring liquids in a teaspoon has a different amount when you measure granules in the same teaspoon. In the same manner, a flour in a teaspoon may differ in the amount on that of the teaspoon of sugar. Why, because sugar comes in granules while the latter comes in powder. Thus, the volume of every substance that can sit on a teaspoon could be different because of the texture of every substance.
So, if one brand tells you that you need a teaspoon, think well. You can try the taste first because it may mean a heaped, a rounded, or a level teaspoon which offers a different taste.
Another thing is: You can add an extra ingredient to your instant coffee once in a while. Well, just to make some fun change to your normal coffee routine. Some may use cream or sugar (well, these are the most popular).
But do you know that there are other ingredients that could give an extra flair to your cup? Yes, you can and they definitely taste amazing. Consider these ingredients:
- Coco milk
- Vanilla extract
- Ice cream
Are you a bit of surprised? Yes! They can all give your coffee the best taste ever. Don't be afraid to experiment. Even fruits are added to coffee for greater taste!
