Two Words- Instant, Decaf
I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
I’m not a coffee drinker, I’m a coffee guzzler. It’s true. I can easily drink a pot, or more, a day. There is not a single time you could offer me coffee and I’d say “no.” I don’t get the jitters, I don’t get withdrawal headaches, I just get lots of lots of the liquid of heaven.
If there is two coffees I will sneer, jeer, and fear, it’s instant or decaf, but I’m dedicated to this blog, and said I’d take one for the team.
The instructions state “1 rounded teaspoon per 6oz” and I like big mugs (and I cannot lie) so I used two rounded spoonfuls.
It did come out very dark. Couldn’t claim it was watered down that is for sure!
I treated it like any other cup of coffee, some sugar, some cream. Still very dark. Some more cream, still very dark. Some powdered creamer, finally a more acceptable creamy brown. So it took a lot of creamer to get a creamy cup. I took a sip. Not awful. Not great either, but not awful.
I finished the cup. Which is not astounding, wasting coffee, even instant decaf, is considered the greatest of sins in my eyes. Honestly, it wasn’t bad! I think with some fiddling, it could even be good! I might make it with milk next time instead of water jut to try it, and I’ll be using it in various recipes in the future. On a cold day, if my tea, cocoa, and normal coffee stashes are all empty, I could imagine drinking a cup.
