The Difference Between Instant Coffee And Regular Coffee

Eidolonai January 31, 2018

Coffee drinkers, coffee lovers, and coffee addicts have varying degrees of love and obsession with coffee. When it comes to the taste, the coffee experience and many other things, they have different preferences and standards as well. For those who have time to brew their own coffee at home despite their schedule, regular coffee can be enjoyed anytime and when they are out of their homes, they are the ones who would still prefer regular or premium coffee over instant coffee.

For those who are more at ease with the taste of instant coffee, the taste of regular or premium coffee may not appeal to them and even when outside their homes, they might prefer instant coffee still. While it is really more of preference, here are some of the things that make regular coffee distinct from instant coffee.

In terms of preparation, instant coffee is very easy to prepare. You do not need to have a lot of time to have instant coffee. You simply have to add hot water and you instantly have your coffee ready to drink. There are no step-by-sep procedures because there is basically only one step. Instant coffee is the type of coffee intended for those who are in a hurry.

For those who want to enjoy a more premium cup of coffee and can dedicate the time to wait for it to be prepared, instant coffee is probably not something they will enjoy. Regular coffee on the other hand has to be brewed in order for it to be enjoyed. You have to prepare your materials and coffee maker and allot of few minutes for brewing time before enjoying it.

When it comes to taste, regular coffee gives a stronger and bolder flavor. Instant coffee, due to the processes it has already undergone for it to be instant and easy to prepare, loses some of its flavor. You may need to put two or three teaspoonful to enjoy a bolder taste. The aroma of regular coffee is also more distinct and bolder. The aroma of instant coffee tends to be milder and whether you make a mild or strong cup of instant coffee, the aroma tends to be the same. The caffeine content is basically the same for instant coffee since you will need more servings to match the taste of regular coffee.

Regular coffee is more expensive than instant coffee. Instant coffee undergoes additional processing and thus has more operational expense, but is still less expensive than regular coffee. The higher premium of regular coffee is primarily due to the taste that it promises to deliver. Coffee, after all, is a beverage and for food and beverage choices, better taste means a heavier price tag.

Each has its own advantage and disadvantage. If you are after convenience, you will prefer instant coffee over regular coffee. If it is the taste that you are after, you may opt to go for regular coffee despite the preparation that you need to do before you enjoy your first cup.
