Soluble coffee

If you are looking for a coffee product that is easy to prepare, easy to store and easy to transport, soluble coffee (also known as coffee powder) is the way to go.  You can prepare soluble coffee instantly by adding hot water (or hot milk) to the coffee product. Because of its long shelf life, you can store  it for months in a dry place. And thanks to durable packaging (including single serve packets), soluble coffee has been used in military rations, in space shuttle flights, in wilderness backpacking trips and in many other endeavors – both extraordinary and ordinary.

Soluble coffee is 100% pure coffee and 100% pure convenience.

The process of producing soluble coffee is very similar to the process of producing regular coffee. Green coffee beans are carefully selected, roasted, and ground. Once ground, coffee is dissolved in water in a process called extraction. It is then dried (or in rare cases kept in concentrated liquid form) by either freeze drying or spray drying.

Though spray drying can be more economical, freeze drying is often preferred because the resulting coffee product is of a higher quality.

Once dried, the coffee powder (or larger granules) is packaged and ready to transport. The final step in the process?  When you scoop or pour out the coffee into a cup, add hot water and enjoy!

NESCAFÉ is proud to be an integral part of the history of soluble coffee.  Though it was invented all the way back in 1901, NESCAFÉ brought soluble coffee to the masses thanks to our advanced coffee refining process.

It all started when the Brazilian government first approached NESTLÉ to find a way to preserve its huge coffee surpluses. The idea was to produce a quality cup of coffee that could be made simply by adding water.  After eight long years of research, NESCAFÉ soluble coffee was born, revolutionizing the coffee industry.

For over 70 years, we’ve been delighted to capture coffee at its brightest to give you the 100% NESCAFÉ taste that you love so much.
