The Measuring Mistake To Avoid When Making Instant Coffee
Instant coffee comes with pitfalls, especially during the measuring process. To minimize them, closely monitor how many scoops go into a cup and adjust with a precise water ratio.
For most instant brands, you'll need six fluid ounces, which is considered the standard size. This is a different volume than a customary cup, leading to measuring mistakes.
Additionally, this standard volume varies globally, like in Japan, where a cup is just shy of seven ounces. Pouring exactly six ounces guarantees stronger, more flavorful results.
To better control whether a cup comes out weak or strong, experiment by adding varying quantities of grounds rather than water. This will help ease measurements.
