An instant energy booster, a cup of coffee
is the most important thing in the morning for millions of people worldwide. The heady aroma of the beans
, enjoyed straight up or teamed with milk and sugar into a foamy concoction, makes for a delightful start to the day. Coffee is not just any beverage but almost a ritual, and there is a considerable amount of skills required to master the perfect cup of coffee, right from sourcing the beans and grinding them, to brewing the liquor. But for those who love coffee but don’t have the time to dedicate making the beverage from scratch, there’s instant coffee to the rescue. While coffee connoisseurs may dismiss it as lacking flavour, for some it is the next best thing.
The best part about coffee is that there is a recipe for everyone. You can make in different ways to suit your taste. While espresso
are the most popular forms of coffee in the morning, coming to South India, the filter coffee rules through and through. Served in a small steel glass that is placed in a steel bowl, the furiously hot coffee is usually tamed before drinking it by repeatedly pouring it from the steel glass to the steel bowl and vice versa.
For those who love cold beverages, you can use coffee to make creamy cold coffee
, frappe, mocha coolers, etc. You can make it more sinful by adding chocolate syrup, ice cream
, whipped cream and the likes. All you need to do is invest in a basic coffee maker, which is readily available in the market and in affordable prices. Once you do so, you can go all out and create your favourite coffee drinks within minutes!
