Putting it all together
It's time to work on the iconic and perfect NESCAFÉ Red Mug instant coffee. There are some simple ways to create a creamy, rich and smooth coffee every time, and there's a good chance you have everything you need in your kitchen already. Here's how to bring it all together to make the perfect instant coffee at home.
The first step is always the same - heat your water to 80º Celsius, or 175º Fahrenheit. There's no need to heat the water until it's boiling - this uses more energy than is necessary, and heats the water up too much. 80º Celsius (or 175º Fahrenheit) is the perfect temperature for the perfect cup of instant coffee.
While that happens, spoon 1 heaped teaspoon of your favourite NESCAFÉ Red Mug instant coffee into a mug and add sugar to taste.
Once the water has heated up, pour it over the instant coffee and stir until the grounds have dissolved. If you would like some milk with your coffee, gently heat the milk on the stove, or in a microwave. It needs to be warm - not boiling!
Pro tip: Not all milk types froth equally. Dairy milk froths the easiest, but you might find that plant-based alternatives don't froth as well. This is because many plant-based milks have water as a base, and water just won't froth.
