Pros and Cons of Organic Instant Coffee

Updated on September 12, 2014

Are You Making The Switch From Coffee Maker to Instant Organic Coffee?

Have you given up your old coffee pot and made the switch to drinking organic instant coffee? Maybe you have not switched yet but are considering doing so? Or maybe you are just looking for a good instant organic coffee recommendation. On this page, learn a bit more about the reasons to drink organic instant coffee and find a reputable online source for buying your own organic instant coffee.

I was given this page by online friend Darcie and set off to learn more about instant organic coffee. As with many food-related health issues, the answers are not always crystal clear. Please take this information as a guide to help you decide whether or not instant organic coffee is for you. And, if you are already sold on instant organic coffee, be sure to let us know about it.Please note that I am not in any sense a medical professional. As a matter of fact, I do not even drink coffee, but my husband does. I hate cleaning his coffee pot and often wonder about the health implications of his coffee ritual. (I drink tea, which has its own concerns.)img@ravenwalker36

The Pros Of Instant Organic Coffee?

  • Organic coffee is better for you. It contains antioxidants and is free of toxic pesticides and chemicals.
  • Organic coffee has been shown to provide health benefits. It may reduce the risk of prostate cancer, lessen the incidence of colon cancer and reduce the incidence of diabetes.
  • Instant organic coffee smells great.
  • Instant organic coffee tastes great.
  • Instant coffee is EASY and QUICK.
  • No annoying coffee pot or maker to clean.

The Cons Of Instant Organic Coffee?

  • When you are ready for a second cup, you will have to make it rather than pour it directly from your coffee pot.
  • Instant organic coffee does not taste as good as freshly brewed coffee.
  • Coffee of any sort comes with a list of potential health issues.
  • Instant organic coffee costs more than regular instant coffee.

"You won't believe this is instant coffee! " ~ Amazon customer L.W. Gigi about Mount Hagen organic instant coffee

Mount Hagen Organic Freeze Dried Instant Coffee

Mount Hagen Organic Freeze Dried Instant Coffee is Darcie's favourite instant organic coffee. After reading the extremely favourable Amazon customer reviews I could understand why.

Amazon customer myoho guy had this to say about Mount Hagan organic instant coffee, "I like freshly-ground, brewed coffee, but sometimes I'm in a hurry and just want a reasonable facsimile that looks, smells, and tastes like it and delivers my morning cup of coffee."

Myoho guy performed a test between Mount Hagen and Nescafe Taster's Choice, his ordinary instant coffee brand. Summarizing, he gave the edge for aroma to Mt. Hagen. With regard to taste, he said the result was close but he gave the win to Mount Hagen for richer flavour and fuller body. Nescafe won the challenge for convenience and affordability. And, when it came down to ecofriendliness, he thought the organically-grown Mount Hagen product would be ahead until he factored in the fact that it travels to North America from Germany. In the end, he gave the win to Mount Hagen, because it had a "slightly richer flavour and it's organically grown."

I recommend you check out the rest of the Amazon customer reviews by clicking here. You might be surprised at what you can learn from reviews by the people who use a product.

Mount Hagen Organic Freeze Dried Instant Coffee is available in both regular and decaffeinated formats.

      Excellent lens on coffee. Your research is very well organized and gave life to useful information. I am not into instant coffee as I prefer other "advance" grounds but organic instant sounds as the best choice but the price is definitely a negative factor.

      Thanks ~ I am planning to switch to instant coffee cuz I'm tired of cleaning my coffee maker and naturally I would prefer organic. One of your "Cons" is a "Pro" to me, btw: the fact that you have to make a new one when you're ready for your second cup ...that will help with not drinking too much coffee.

      I do buy organic coffee and fair trade coffee but not the instant type. I prefer freshly brew (I have a neat system to brew only one cup at a time). Yes it cost more, but I think it's worth it.

      Interesting topic. I'm not a coffee drinker and my husband prefers to use his two-cup coffee maker, but having instant organic coffee on hand might be a really good idea since it does get such great reviews.

      I do use the convenient Nescafe instant coffee tubes for my afternoon coffee. I did not realize organic instant is available.

      My husband is the coffee drinker and I don't know if he'd go for instant. The only way I drink coffee is if it has a lot of "stuff" in it, like at Starbucks. I'm sure organic instant coffee will appeal to a lot of people though.

      I guess I should have known that there was such a thing as organic instant coffee. I will admit that I never thought of it before.

      Ok, I gotta admit, you got me curious now!!! I am definitely gonna try it.... (Just for the fun of it..... I don't think I'm ready to retire my coffee maker just yet..... Lol)

      I've never tried organic instant coffee but would certainly be willing to give it a try. I know what you mean about that second cup being ready. Just give me my coffee in the morning with a little sugar and I'm ready to go!

      I prefer Tea over Coffee. I drink lots of tea and a similar number of Coffee cups give me a headache. I do drink Coffee some times - Nescafe. Organic Coffee is not that popular in India.

      Sadly, I can't cope with instant coffee in any form and decaffeinated is even worse! Don't you love personal variations and individuality?

      I did not know about the organic option you presented. I'm always open to trying new products. However, I need a whole pot of coffee in the morning.

      I've never tried the organic crystals. I'll look for them on my next shopping trip. Lens rolled to my Instant Coffee lens.

      I'm a big coffee drinker and in moderation I feel it is ok. There are worse things to drink like energy drinks, etc. I can't give up my coffee and need 2 cups in the morning before I can even leave the house and function. Side note, I've never had instant, organic freeze dried coffee and am not for sure I've even seen it at my small local store. I'll look for it next time I'm in the store.

      I know it's not healthy but can't get away from it.
