Instant Coffee Revisited

THINKINGCOFFEE

As mentioned in an earlier post, I have begun drinking instant coffee again. And I must say I enjoyed the first ten drinks or so! The familiar roasty taste of Nescafe made me nostalgic and is instantly recognizable. As a product, instant coffee really is unbeatable.

But instant coffee can only do so much for the palate. Drinking Nescafe Gold and International Roast on some occasions, and specialty coffee on others, it quickly became apparent that instant coffee captures only a slice of the spectrum of aromas and flavours offered up by proper brewed coffee. It’s rather like listening to music through a hi-fi system, and then the same music through tinny computer speakers. You just don’t get the whole picture with the latter.

What prompted me to look closer at instant coffee is this comment from coffeeresearch.org:

Why Arabica Coffee is Heading Higher…Much Higher

Rip City Trader

The darling of this year’s commodity markets, arabica coffee, which at one point reached a return of 90% since the start of the year, has been taking a beating lately. On Friday, the July 14’ ICE coffee (KC) contract experienced its biggest one-day drop since 2011 of more than five percent, this after jumping 12 cents higher Thursday following Brazil’s Confab bureau announcement which cut the total coffee production estimate to 44.7 million bags.

The volatility has been wild in the past few months to say the least and it will probably continue, especially as the long-awaited harvest reports from Brazil start trickling in later this month.  If these initial reports come in more positive than expected, we can expect coffee to keep grinding lower in the short term.
