Is this instant Coffee?
Yes, this is instant coffee, but it’s not the same instant coffee you or your grandparents had growing up. We use much better ingredients and processes to bring you the best cup of coffee we can.
How is this different/better than other instant coffees?
The processing our coffee goes through from coffee beans to instant coffee results in a much more flavorful cup than most other instant coffees.
First, we use higher quality Arabica beans grown at high altitudes in the Andes Mountains resulting in a more concentrated and complex flavor. Most instant coffee uses the cheapest coffee they can, which is Robusta beans that are grown near sea level and mixed with coffee beans from different countries.
Next, our beans are roasted much more slowly and carefully to ensure different flavors are left intact and so it doesn’t have that burnt taste that instant coffees tend to have. It’s because they roast it much quicker/hotter.
Then a cold process called cold concentration is used where ice crystals form, trapping the aroma/tones. Then it goes through sublimation (during the freeze-drying process), where the extra water is removed, leaving the flavors undamaged. Depending on the temperature and pressure used, the quality of the flavors extracted will vary. We work with specialists who know what the best method is for the premium quality beans we use.
What is Panela?
