Instant coffee is made from roasted coffee beans that are finely ground and dissolved in water. The coffee solution is then dried in a variety of ways, including freeze-drying, which removes the water by sublimation or spray drying.
Several types of instant coffee were invented in the late 1800s but it wasn’t until the 30s that the flavor and aroma were greatly improved. In fact, it was Nescafé that created the proprietary blend of equal parts coffee extract and soluble carbohydrates. This new ratio made a better tasting coffee, which quickly led to the popularity of instant coffee in Italy, the U.S., and around the world.
At Supermarket Italy, you’ll find the best Italian instant coffee brands such as Nescafé Classic, which has a rich taste and aroma. This 100% pure instant coffee is the main ingredient in a Nescafe frappe, the most popular summer coffee drink in Greece. It can also be used as a quick and convenient flavor enhancer for smoothies, iced coffees, and other coffee-flavored drinks. It also tastes delicious on its own or mellowed with creamer.
For an Italian update in your instant coffee routine, Medaglia d’ Oro is a quality blend that delivers a traditional espresso flavor with double roasted beans.
