- Instant coffee
- Sugar (optional)
- Cream or milk (optional)
- Flavorings, such as vanilla extract, cinnamon, or cocoa powder (optional)
- Put water in a kettle and boil it. If you do not have a kettle, then put water in a pot and put it on the stove. Or use an immersion heater and warm up the water in a separate heat-proof mug. The easiest method is to use a microwave.(Note: Be careful when heating coffee in a microwave oven, as there can be a sudden release of steam and hot water that may result in burns)
- Take the Africafe instant Pure coffee and put about one slightly rounded teaspoon (this may vary based upon how strong one likes their coffee).
- Pour just a teaspoon of the very hot (nearly boiling) water into the mug; only enough to dampen the instant coffee. If you use sugar, put in your sugar granules. Now, with a metal spoon, crush the slurry against the side of the mug.
- Stir in the rest of the hot water.
- Add fresh whole milk, fresh half-and-half, or non-dairy creamer to the Africafe coffee if desired. Evaporated milk from a can (undiluted) may also be used.
- Flavorings such as vanilla extract, cocoa powder, or ground cinnamon may be added at this time. If the coffee has been modified, then stir thoroughly until the extra ingredients have been dissolved.
