There are several ways to prepare this versatile beverage, and here are some of the instant coffee recipes you can try at home.

1. Mexican Coffee

On a black patterned table, a grey ceramic coffee cup sits. Enjoy this delectable beverage from our southern neighbors, which combines powerful coffee with chocolate, spice, citrus, and vanilla. It’s a little bit of magic in a cup.

Ingredients

  • 1 oz. coffee, roughly ground.
  • 2 c. liquid.
  • Semisweet chocolate, 2 oz.
  • 1/2 gallon of milk.
  • 1 to 2 oz. dark brown sugar.
  • 1 stick of cinnamon.
  • 1 rind of an orange.
  • Vanilla extract (1/2 teaspoon).
  • Cream.

Preparation

  • Brew the coffee and water according to your preference. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the cinnamon stick, orange peel, milk, and chocolate. For the sugar and chocolate to melt, heat gradually, stirring regularly, for approximately 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and whisk in the vanilla and brewed coffee. Pour the coffee into mugs after removing the cinnamon and orange peel. If desired, serve with a dollop of cream.

2. Hot Mocha Float

A beige coffee cup holds hot coffee. This is a delicious, decadent coffee-based dish that you may want to add to your repertoire. For a luscious pleasure, coffee, cocoa, chocolate ice cream, and more are combined together.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 pound of sugar
  • 2 quarts of milk
  • 2 cups hot, strong coffee
  • 1 cup ice cream (chocolate)

Preparation

  • In a large saucepan, combine the cocoa powder and sugar.
  •  Pour in the milk and whisk constantly over medium heat until well combined.
  • Take the pan off the heat and add the hot coffee.
  •  Pour the mixture into cups.

3. Cinnamon Cappuccino

Don’t give up if you don’t have an espresso machine or a way to froth milk for your cappuccino at home.

Ingredients

  • Simple syrup with a cinnamon taste (recipe below)
  • 2 oz. made double-strength coffee
  • Milk (12 ounces)
  • A screw-on cover for a 24-ounce glass jar.

Procedure

  • Make coffee according to your preferences. Pour 12 ounces of milk into the glass jar while the coffee is brewing. Close the cover with a screw.
  • Shake the jar vigorously for 30 to 60 seconds, or until the milk is frothy and has about doubled in volume.
  • Remove the lid from the jar and microwave it for 30 seconds on high, uncovered. The foam will float to the top of the milk (almost doubling in volume) and be stabilized by the heat from the microwave.
  • Divide the steaming coffee into two cups and sweeten with a dash of cinnamon syrup in each. After that, pour the heated milk into the cups and top it with the milk foam. The cinnamon powder should be sprinkled over the froth.
  • Drinks yielded: two 8-ounce glasses
  • Simple Syrup with Cinnamon Flavor
  • 1 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cinnamon stick, tiny
  • In a saucepan, heat the mixture until the sugar dissolves in the water. Place the cinnamon stick in the syrup after removing the pan from the heat. As the syrup cools, let the cinnamon steep. When the cinnamon taste is to your preference, remove the stick. Simple syrup may be stored in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container.

4. Mexican Spiced Coffee

On a white table, coffee is served in a white cup. You may want to experiment with the intensity of the coffee and/or the chili powder in this drink, but it’s definitely worth the time to find your ideal combination.

Ingredients

  • Two tablespoons of sugar (powdered)
  • One tablespoon of cocoa powder (Dutch-processed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • A quarter-teaspoon of chili powder (depending on personal taste)
  • 3/4 to 1 cup freshly brewed coffee
  • A quarter cup of milk
  • To serve, whipped cream

Preparation

  • In the bottom of a coffee cup, combine the powdered sugar, cocoa powder, cinnamon, and chili powder.
  • Pour in the hot coffee and stir until it is completely dissolved.
  •  Pour in the milk.
  •  If desired, top with whipped cream and a pinch of cinnamon.

5. Vietnamese Egg Coffee

Egg Coffee, to be precise. The egg yolk is the sole ingredient in the drink, which is whisked together with sweetened condensed milk to create a creamy top layer. One cup of coffee is produced.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces of strong brewed black coffee
  • 2 tbsp. condensed milk, sweetened
  • 1 yolk of an egg

Preparation

  • In a small bowl, mix together the condensed milk, egg yolk, and one tablespoon of coffee. A light tint and a frothy texture that cascades into thick ribbons from the whisk are what you’re aiming for. This will take a long time and a lot of work.
  • You can make this much more simply with a stand mixer if you double or quadruple the recipe. However, there isn’t enough volume in one cup for the whisk attachment to aerate the mixture.
  • Pour the remaining coffee into a glass cup 1/3 to 1/2 full, then top with the egg foam.

6. Instant Coffee au Lait

A cup, a spoon, and a microwave are all you’ll need to make this foamy, sweetened cafe au lait-style coffee. It’s the ideal coffee for when you need a caffeine fix quickly.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coffee sugar mixture
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, lukewarm
  • 1/2 gallon whole milk, chilled
  • Cinnamon powder with cocoa powder (optional)

Procedure

  • In a microwave-safe cup or small dish, place a liberal spoonful of the coffee-sugar mixture. Pour roughly 1/2 cup of lukewarm milk into the mixture. Microwave for 20-25 seconds on high.
  • To dissolve any lumps, remove the liquid and stir gently but completely with a spoon. This is critical. Before adding additional milk, make sure the coffee-milk combination is smooth. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of cold milk carefully to mix everything. Note: Overmixing the milk will result in less froth in the finished cup.
  • Return the mixture to the microwave for another 30-40 seconds, or until the froth rises. Your coffee has been prepared. If desired, sprinkle with ground cinnamon or chocolate powder.

7. Cafe Breve

The Breve is a rich and creamy cappuccino prepared without milk and with half and half instead. The half-and-half produces a thick froth with a strong structure that stands up to espresso. Keep in mind that this contemporary American variant delivers a sweeter cup than usual when brewing this coffee at home.

Ingredients

  • 4 oz. coffee, double-strength
  • 4 oz. half-and-half
  • A glass jar with a lid that holds 8 ounces

Procedure

  • Brew the coffee using your regular technique, but use twice as much grounds as usual to get a double-strength brew.
  • Pour 4 ounces of half-and-half into the glass jar while the coffee is brewing. Close the cover with a screw. Shake the jar vigorously for 30 to 60 seconds, or until the half-and-half is frothy and has about doubled in volume. Remove the lid from the jar and microwave it for 30 seconds on high, uncovered. The foam will rise to the top of the half-and-half (almost doubling in volume) and be stabilized by the microwave’s heat.
  • Pour the steamed milk into an 8-ounce cup while keeping back the froth. Half of the foam should be placed on top. Pour the coffee into the cup slowly, then add the leftover froth on top. If desired, dust with chocolate powder.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What can you do with instant coffee?

A: Blend into smoothies or sprinkle on top of ice cream. You can also make milkshakes, make some coffee ice pops and toss them with oats. Alternatively, use it to bake brownies, coffee mousse and coffee cakes using a microwave.

Q How do you make instant coffee special?

A: You can make your instant coffee special by adding cocoa powder, butter, cinnamon, or bend it with frothed milk, ice, liquor or add alternate sweeteners.

Q: Is instant coffee better with milk or water?

A: Water makes up the majority of milk. In milk or even cream, instant coffee dissolves easily. Of course, the flavor will be more akin to a weak latte than coffee. A latte is basically coffee and milk combined.

Q: How do you make coffee with instant powder?

A: Add 12 cups (120 mL) of hot water plus 2 teaspoons of the instant coffee microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute to heat the water. To dissolve the coffee granules, combine the coffee and hot water in a mixing bowl. Mix your coffee in a different cup or in the glass you wish to sip from.

Q: Can I use instant coffee in baking?

A: One of the greatest options for replacing espresso powder in chocolate desserts or spice rubs is instant coffee. Although the two are quite similar, instant coffee is less concentrated than espresso powder and thus adds less richness to your recipe.

Q: Can I cook with instant coffee?

A: By combining a dash of instant coffee with a scoop of plain batter (you can’t use espresso since it would be too liquid), you can have your morning caffeine fix in cookie form. Start baking and inhale the pleasant aroma of roasted coffee as it wafts through your home.
