I used to be a major coffee snob, buying the best beans, grinding them myself, looking down my nose at people who drank instant coffee. Then I went off coffee for a while. Now I'm back, and have seen the light, some instant coffee isn't that bad. Since I started Somersizing I've been taking my coffee with cream instead of milk, and that makes it even better. This is my favorite cup of coffee, my first aaaaahhhhhh of the morning. Use 1 15 ounce mug (with Recipezaar logo -- see note below)
- Place both coffees in bottom of mug.
- Add hot water.
- Add sugar to taste (I like my coffee without sugar).
- Add cream.
- Note below: You can get a Recipezaar mug at CafePress.com (just go to http://www. cafeshops. com/recipezaar. 6946752).
mmmmmm...I'm sitting here enjoying my first cup Mirj, and wish you were here to have one with me. I used an excellent quality instant espresso blend for the coffee as we don't have the hazelnut instant. BUT, I do have some hazelnut coffee drops that I brough back from a trip a while back and they were finally put to use. This coffee (using an espresso blend) is aromatic, nutty, creamy, simply wonderful. My first cup will always be held up to toast you Mirj!
Very good coffee drink. Of course, real cream can make anything take better. Even instant coffee. ;)
Hey Mirj, I have made this coffee 6 times, until I found a way it suited my taste buds. I ended up using 1-1/2 tsp. of either Taster's Choice House Blend Coffee, or Maxwell House's instant coffee. I did not care for Tatser's Choice 100º Columbian tho, as it was just TOO STRONG, plus I added 2 ounces (4 tablespoons) of heavy whipping cream, and 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) of hazelnut coffee creamer. I did not add any sugar, as the 1 ounce of hazelnut creamer made the coffee taste sweet enough. A couple things I wanted to also mention here... I used those individual single serve packets of instant coffee, which you can purchase either 7 or 20 in a box, and each packet equals 1-1/2 teaspoons, also the recipe states this makes 1 serving, each serving equals 14 ounces of coffee. Thank-you Mirj for sharing this recipe, it definitely was delish!
