Mention the phrase “instant coffee” to just about anyone, and you’ll probably elicit a groan or two. However, the much-derided beverage is making a quiet comeback, thanks to a lot of companies that take their morning joe seriously – even the instant variety. One of those companies is Swift Cup Coffee, a purveyor of high-quality, ethically sourced, freeze-dried goodness. Based in Pennsylvania, they offer a range of choices, from their Mainstay Blend to Latin American and African flavors. It couldn’t be easier to make – just add water and stir – which is perfect for anyone who needs a quick fix. The taste holds up to any traditionally brewed coffee I’ve had. Highly recommended.
