Instant coffee history:

Caffeine is one of the things people usually look for right when they wake up, before they start work, when they need to keep themselves awake, and for nights when you need to finish a project and have no time to sleep. Instant Coffee while highly debated of it’s worth especially for some coffee aficionados, have been wildly used especially in the 1970’s made for modern convenience and instant gratification. 

One of the earliest version of instant coffee was invented around 1771, Britain, developed in America in 1853, field-tested during the Civil War. Established in the 1908’s, instant coffee was massed produced to accompany soldiers in the Civil war to give them a caffeine boost. But instant coffee was not the same style of granulated powder we know today, instant coffee made for war had grease like consistency and didn’t live up to the soldier’s palette. It was in 1901, Satori Kato a Japanese American chemist created a successful way to create a soluble coffee. After a few more alterations by different brands, this then became a household item in the 1938 by Nestle, now branded with Nescafe. With more that 5,500 cups of instant coffee consumed per second around the globe. Nestlé started it’s global coffee domination following the Wall Street Crash, with the collapse of the market, unsold coffee were left at their Brazil warehouses. Which they then tried selling these stocks to consumers, by recreating and preserving the aroma and taste, researching and creating a new way to preserve the coffee and produce coffee powders packaged in tin cans to be launched in Switzerland, setting up a large scale production, moving onto the United Kingdom and a few month later in the United States. In 1940, Nescafe had become available in 30 countries worldwide.

The convenience of enjoying the beverage with just hot cup of water without the need for a machine, grinder or brewer, became a worldwide phenomenon that’s enjoyed till this day.

What is a Latte?

American tourists frequented Italy, the creator of this warm milky drink. It was in 1867, that the name ‘café latte’ was credited to William Dean Howells in an essay he entitled ‘Italian Journeys. This form of latte can be found throughout Europe enjoyed in cafes and homes since the 17thcentury. Aside from the usual Americano drink, lattes are also a great way to jump-start your day, the milky sweet drink called ‘Latte’ or ‘Café Latte’. Though most coffee houses make espresso with coffee and milk, ‘latte’ is just milk, which is why when latte is ordered in Italian or European countries they would serve a steaming hot cup of milk. A café latte is essentially 1 part espresso and 2 parts milk with a thin layer of foam on top.

How can instant coffee be fancy?

Instant coffee is essentially dehydrated coffee extract usually made of Robusta beans.
