How To Make Instant Coffee With Milk

Coffee! A word that awakens you from a deep slumber. A kind of aroma that has you working hard and fast, to make it like you have earned every sip. Whatever the occasion may be, coffee is something that has you captivated. And as for all the coffee lovers, one thing is for sure, filter coffee is heaven for sure. But a quick coffee fix to the mood is always a steaming cup of instant coffee. 

Now there are many ways to make a cup of instant coffee. But just a few ones to make the perfect cup of instant coffee. But, before we dive into how to make instant coffee with milk, let us first understand why instant coffee is the best. 

When you need a pick-me-up but don’t have a coffee maker, instant coffee is the best fix for any situation like that. Filter coffee or the one that is made with fresh ground coffee has a whole different earthy taste, but it also is a lengthy process to make it. Unlike that, instant coffee granules are made from dehydrated brewed coffee. 

Sure, this will rob you of immersing in the process and making your coffee from the very start, like making the actual granules at home and then brewing a hot cup, but instant coffee is still one of the easiest and quickest ways to get a caffeine fix. 

Let us have a look at the best ways to make instant coffee at home, and get pumped up before, after, or even during work with every sip!

What All You Need-

1 Cup Hot Water

1 or 2 Teaspoons of OkCaramel Instant Coffee

1 or 2 Teaspoons Sugar (Optional)

Milk or any Creamer

Cocoa, Spices, or, Vanilla Extract (optional)

Steps to perfect instant coffee-

Warm a cup of water 

Microwave a cup of water for 1 minute to quickly and easily heat it. You could also use a pot or kettle to heat it on the stovetop. Heat it over medium-high heat, then remove it from the heat just before it begins to boil. Heat 1 cup (240 mL) of water for 1 serving. If you want to make more servings, add more water.

It will be easier to pour hot water into your mug if you use a kettle.

Add Coffee-

1 to 2 teaspoons of OkCaramel instant coffee in a mug. Check the label on your instant coffee container to see how much you should use to get the best flavor. Most would recommend 1 to 2 teaspoons for 1 cup (240 mL) of water.

Adjust the quantity of your coffee according to your liking. You can add more coffee if you want strong coffee, or less if you are not a fan of strong flavors. 

Get the perfect blend-

Dissolve the coffee with a tablespoon of cold water before pouring it into the hot water. Mix it well to dissolve it completely, and make sure there remain no lumps of coffee. This step will help you enhance the flavor of the coffee. 

So, one thing to keep in mind every time you go in for a cup of instant coffee, instead of directly shocking the coffee powder with hot water, first mix it well with some cold water, and bring out the beautiful aroma! 

Pour in the Cup-

Fill the mug halfway with hot water. Carefully pour in the water, especially if you're not using a kettle. If you don't like your coffee black, leave room for milk or creamer. 

Your coffee is ready!

Once you have added the creamer or milk, you can then add sugar and other flavors to get a better taste. 

But, with OkCaramel’s flavored coffee, you don’t have to! You won’t have to add any other spices or flavors to enhance the taste. 

Nonetheless, if you are one of those coffee enthusiasts who like to mix and match flavors, you can always experiment with any spices you like with any one of your favorite Ok Caramel coffee flavors. 

Stir your coffee well and enjoy it in your favorite corner of the house with a book by your side. 

There is also an option for all those who like their coffee cold and with cubes of ice, to enjoy it for a long long time. Just skip the hot water and warm milk step, and add everything cold. 

Top it off with a few ice cubes and you are ready to work!
