I recently "discovered" instant coffee! Can you believe it? What rock have I been living under to not know about instant coffee? LOL! I always thought it had to be brewed (don't laugh at me too loudly!) I am the only "coffee drinker" in my house; Husband is just not into it! I used to have a coffee-maker, but I got rid of it because it wasn't efficient for just one person to use. While I enjoy the taste (and smell!) of coffee, I only drink it from time to time. But when I get the urge to have a taste, it comes on pretty strong!

So instead of getting it at a coffee shop (and spending way too much!), I picked up some instant, decaffeinated coffee! Yummy! I just pour a pre-packaged, single serving size of coffee into a mug, add hot water, and there I have it--instant coffee. I add a little french vanilla creamer and sugar and I'm good to go! I am solely into coffee for the taste, not for the caffeine, so this works well for me. It is extra cold here, so this has been a welcomed treat!


  1. Stacie,
    This made me laugh. I can just imagine your excitement when you made your discovery. I am an ice tea drinker and I had a somewhat similar incident when I 'discover' tagless teabags for 1/2 the price of regular ones.

    Have a wonderful day.

  2. Hey Debbie,

    Yeah, I had to laugh at myself. . .it's the simple things that make a big difference!

  3. My husband is the only coffee drinker in our house - but I love the smell of it! He usually brews a whole pot for himself on the weekends, so we get that lovely aroma wafting through the house!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Hi Tracey, welcome and thanks for stopping by!

    Yes, there's nothing like the smell of freshly brewed coffee!!

    Take care.

  5. I have yet to discover instant coffee.. I love the way my coffee sounds as it is brewing in the morning the final brewing noise as it perculates is like my second alarm clock.

    I doctor my coffee with lots of flavor so I am not sure instant would work well for me.. however I may place some packets along with some little creamers in my car for emergencies!

    blessings & giggles

  6. Hi Jeanie,

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a few words! (welcome!!)

    Yeah, there's something about the smell of freshly brewed coffee--there's just nothing like it! You're right though, instant coffee is great for "emergencies"!

    Take care!!
