Instant coffee is also known as soluble coffee, which in layman’s terms means “just add water”. It is said that instant coffee was first invented in the late eighteenth century in England. The first registered patent, however, belongs to New Zealander David Strand from Invercargill. The instant preparation method has been hugely successful. Although there are varying methods, the principle is to brew coffee and then to get rid of all the water. This leaves you with a coffee powder that is just waiting to be rehydrated, and voilà, a cup of coffee in an instant. There are many commercial benefits to instant: a long shelf life, a lower shipping weight than bean or ground for the same amount of coffee, and, of course, its convenience and ease of preparation. However, “instant” has become a byword for cheap, low-grade coffee that provides a caffeine hit but fails to offer quality. This may be changing. In 2016 two-time Finnish Barista champion Kalle Freese founded Sudden Coffee – taking exceptional speciality coffees and making, brewing, and producing them as instant. The challenge here is maintaining aromatics, but having tasted Kalle’s coffees I think it fair to say that instant coffee has the potential to display the character and flavour of high-quality coffee.
