Coffee - Instant or Filtered?

Updated on November 21, 2014

I Love My Coffee

I love drinking coffee. I enjoy a cup in the morning, especially at the weekend when I'm reading the morning paper. A cup of filtered coffee on the rare occasion I have a "Full English Breakfast" just starts my day. I love coffee when I've been working in the garden. I stand there with my cup in hand admiring my handywork, or pointing to my other half and telling him what part of the weeding he has missed. I love my afternoon coffee with a slice of homemade cake, if I've had time to make it, but I'm not fussy I also enjoy bought cake too.

My favourite coffee is probably the one I have in the evening when the housework has been finished, the children don't require my attention, work is finished and I can sit in my comfy chair with a cup of coffee consisting of 50% strong coffee and 50% boiling milk. Delicious. I can then switch off, relax and think back to the things that have made me happy that day. With my coffee in hand I can always think of something that has made me smile.

I am happy to have my coffee in any old mug, except for my last coffee of the day. I do like a cup and saucer for that coffee. It seems to enhance the delicious taste for me.

Now, don't think I enjoy all things coffee because I don't. My family know never to offer me coffee sweets, coffee pudding or coffee flavoured chocolate. No that's not right, but I do love a slice of coffee cake.

My photos were all taken on my Nikon D90 Camera.

We all have a preference. What's your?

So where does POD coffee come in? Instant or Filtered?

I have a Tassimo POD (T-Disc) machine. Oh yes, its good! I can thoroughly recommend it.

I'm not sure where I sit on the authenticity of the coffee in terms of instant or filtered, but it doesn't matter in this case as its so good!. No doubt about it, its a consistant cup of coffee and so easy to make.

This is a picture I took of my morning coffee (with my Nikon D90).

The Tassimo POD machine is particularly good at making the coffee cup experience look artistic and impressive. Adds to the experience.

This one in particular was the CARTE NOIRE Expresso and Cappuccino Pods.

The taste of this coffee is wonderful. A real pick-me-up for those morning I forget to prepare the coffee filter. Using the Tassimo coffeemaker is quick and easy. Delicious.

This is a great gift to give a couple as a wedding present.

Tassimo Products

Believe it or not you can buy a Tassimo pod for everyone in the family. You can try various coffees, hot chocolate or even tea!

Where Should I Store my Ground Coffee?

Everyone has an opinion on where you should store your ground coffee. Some people say keep it in the fridge, others say keep it in the freezer, others say keep it in a cool dark place. I prefer to buy my coffee beans in small quantities and grind them as I need them. That way I know my coffee will be fresh whenever I want to use it.

Look at the traditional coffee machines available for you

A lovely selection of ground coffee.

I often buy a small pack of ground coffee that I haven't tasted before. Sometimes I don't like it, at other times I get a pleasant surprise and enjoy it.

Coffee Grinders

I have a Bodum coffee grinder which I also use for grinding spices when I'm cooking. Of course I wash it thoroughly first. If you don't want to go to any expense, most coffee houses where you buy your beans will happily grind them for you free of charge.

We have a slightly older model than this one, but it works just the same.

 

My Coffee and my Home Made cake! - Tempted?

Taken with my Nikon D90
Taken with my Nikon D90

This is a basic victoria sponge cake. I decided to make it a little bit colorful when I was baking it with my little boy.

You can add in lots of different flavours, and be bold with your pattern.

After following steps 1 and 2 below, I take one third of the mixture and put it into a separate bowl. Divide the rest of the mixture between your two greased tins.

With the third in the clean bowl I add a couple of tablespoons of drinking chocolate and stir until the mixture changes colour. I then drizzle that over the mixture in the two greased tins before putting into the oven.

Let your artistic side shine through!!

I have also made this recipe using a couple of teaspoonfuls of coffee, and it tasted delicious.

Remember humidity etc can have an adverse effect on your baking so you may have to tweak the recipe slightly.

Enjoy.

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: As many of as few as you want it to

Ingredients

  • 175 grams unsalted butter
  • 175 grams caster sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • beaten
  • 175 grams self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
  • For Filling
  • strawberry or raspberry jam
  • butter
  • icing sugar

Instructions

  1. 1. Set the oven to 180C/gas 4. Lightly butter two sandwich tins, each with a diameter of 8 inches. I also line the base of the tins with greaseproof paper. It just makes the removal of the cakes easier.
  2. 2. Cream together the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, and then slowly add the beaten egg.
  3. 3. Fold in the sifted flour and spoon the mixture into the prepared cake tins.
  4. 4. Bake for 20 minutes. Leave to cool and then remove from the tins.
  5. 5. When cold make up butter icing, I haven't put quantities in here as some people like a lot of butter icing and some people only like a little. Your taste.
  6. 6. Place butter icing on one flat side of one cake and put your jam of choice on the flat size of the second cake.
  7. 7. "Sandwich" together.
  8. Enjoy with coffee.

Nothing compliements a slice of sticky sweet cake better than a frothy coffee.

When nothing else will come close - coffee will

      I love coffee big time, I just cannot drink it anymore, it makes me feel so sick. But if I could I would probably continue drinking filtered coffee. Although I used to like instant coffee as well, took some time to get to used that different taste. I used to have my coffee black, but now whenever I feel brave enough to have some coffee I use almond cream. Yummy!

      I also love coffee. I started drinking it in the navy at age 19. Been enjoying it ever since. It came in great handy in college. Nothing better than having coffee while grading papers! One thing I also love is chocolate ice cream. I do hope you enjoy that; I noticed you didn't like coffee sweets. I don't either but I do like chocolate flavored ice cream. Good article. Thank you.

      I'm basically a green tea drinker...but over the past year, I have been drinking more and more coffee. But I've been taking a shortcut and going the instant route although I bet going the extra mile and fresh-brewing probably does make quite it difference. I see my brand up there: Folgers Classic Roast. It's really pretty good when you're too lazy to bother..

      I enjoy filtered coffee more than instant but I do drink instant for the convenience. I think Nestle (particularly taster choice) comes close to a real cup of coffee if you measure it correctly. I was able to make an ice latte that's comparable to Starbucks with instant coffee! Unfortunately, I was not able to duplicate it again no matter how hard I tried. :-)
