Ground coffee beans are not the same as instant coffee. So be sure to use a plunger or stovetop espresso maker from Wasteless Pantry too. Instant coffee is coffee that has already been prepared and then freeze-dried for longer storage. That’s why coffee made with fresh beans has such a different flavour and is generally preferred by many. The bonus of making coffee fresh at home is that you can make it as strong as you like and sweeten it to your taste. Need a tip on how to store your coffee beans? No need to pop them in the fridge but make sure they are in a cool dark place within an airtight container. That is the best way to store coffee beans according to our local roaster.
Iced coffee is easy to make at home!
Mix 2 shots of coffee with 3/4 cup of water, pour into an ice cube tray, and freeze. Once frozen, place the coffee ice blocks into a cup and fill it with milk, add maple syrup to taste 😜
