Have you ever felt that instant coffee was a far cry from coffee served in cafes? Perhaps it was missing the vibrant aromas of a freshly brewed cup of coffee, rendering a rather one dimensional drinking experience. If you lack the setup, equipment and time to prepare a well brewed coffee, you have probably resigned to gulping down instant coffee for that quick caffeine kick.

Coffee lovers, don’t give up on the entire instant coffee experience just yet. Microground coffee is a groundbreaking (pun-intended) instant coffee option that will rekindle your love for convenience coffee!
What is Microground Coffee?
In the search for the best instant coffee, microground coffee was developed to bring together the convenience of instant coffee and the delights of a specialty coffee. Microground coffee is prepared by grinding roasted coffee beans to a fineness that cannot be achieved with a common grinder. The process ensures that the coffee grounds are extracted during the brewing process without the need for a filter.
Microground Coffee Takes Instant Coffee to a New Level
Traditionally, instant coffee is made by brewing ground coffee, dehydrating the brew, and making it into a powder. This is done by either freeze-drying or spray-drying the brewed coffee. The entire production process subjects the brewed coffee to the tortures of heat and/or air, resulting in the coffee losing precious flavors and aromas. This translates into a very “flat” cup of coffee which differs greatly from freshly brewed coffee.
• MORE Caffeine
• Dietary Fiber
Ultimately, a brewed cup of microground coffee is aromatic, full-bodied and it replicates the experience you get from a freshly brewed cup of coffee; all while offering you the same convenience as instant coffee!
