Instant Coffee gets a bad rep; it’s like the underdog of the coffee world. Sure, it might not have the artisanal flair of a meticulously prepared espresso or the hipster street cred of a cold brew, but it’s got something those fancy beans don’t: pure, unadulterated convenience.

Just you, a cup, and a small jar of coffee crystals that hold the promise of a perfect, hassle-free brew to kickstart your day. Whether you’re on a mountain top craving a warm beverage or stuck in a late-night work session at home, instant coffee is your reliable sidekick. 

It’s time to learn how to brew a cup of this liquid gold, fast enough to keep up with your crazy schedule and tasty enough to keep you coming back for more. Here’s how to make instant coffee that’s not just quick but also irresistibly delicious.


  • 2 tablespoons of Instant Coffee powder: Pick your favorite instant coffee flavor. Impulse Coffees’ has a variety of flavors, from Chocolate Raspberry to Espresso to Mocha! 
  • 90 ML of Hot Water: Ideally, the water should be just off the boil.
  • 150 ML of milk of choice: You can go for plant-based options as well. If you like your coffee black, you can increase the quantity of hot water and skip the milk. 
  • 2 teaspoons of sweetener of choice
  • Your favorite mug
