Delicious Coffee in an Instant
While nothing can beat a fresh cup of coffee, we understand that life doesn’t always afford us the luxury of time or tools to prepare that perfect cup in every situation. Whether you’re on a trans-atlantic flight, a long road trip or starting an early day of work, sometimes you just need a quick cup of coffee, without the fuss.
It took a company like Swift Cup to come along for us to know that it was possible to produce a sweet and vibrant instant coffee, without compromise. We provide them carefully sourced, freshly roasted coffee and they transform it into the little boxes you see on the shelves at our cafes. It’s a match made in (coffee) heaven.
How is it Made?
Our fresh roasted coffee is ground, brewed, and carefully freeze dried to remove all moisture while preserving the delicate flavor, aroma and body that makes this coffee unique. The resulting powder is sealed in packets and packaged into the tidy little 6-packs about the size of a beverage coaster. Keep a pack in your glove box or a single in your shirt pocket.
How to Use Sightglass Instant
Instant is a simple and versatile product. It has the same complex flavor and caffeine content of a regular cup of coffee, but can be made as strong or weak as you like (and can be dissolved in both hot and cold liquids). Here are a few of our favorite uses:
For a classic cup of coffee, reminiscent of what you’d get in one of our cafes, add 1 packet of Instant to 8oz of hot water, stir and sip.
The trick to great iced coffee is the dilution. Add one packet of Instant to 4oz cold water, stir vigorously until fully dissolved, top with ice and enjoy.
Though it’d be tough to re-create the silky micro-foam that you find at our cafes, instant is the best option for recreating the strength and flavor balance of espresso, without an espresso machine. Add 1 packet of Instant to 8oz of hot milk or milk alternative, stir to dissolve and enjoy!
However you use instant, know that despite the name, we took our time with this. The coffees have been sourced and roasted with great care and carefully processed to preserve what makes a cup of Sightglass so damn delicious in the first place. We put in the hours to make it great, so all that’s left is for you to enjoy it.
