  1. Even I at first didn’t know that, yes, you can make instant coffee with cold water . However, the results may not be as good as when brewed with hot water. Instant coffee made with cold water will likely be more bitter and have a less pronounced flavour than when it’s brewed with hot water.
    One reason cold water doesn’t work well for making instant coffee is that the grounds need to be heated up to dissolve and release the flavour. When you use cold water, the grounds stay colder for longer, which means they don’t dissolve, and the coffee will taste bitter.
    If you really want to make instant coffee with cold water, you can do a few things to improve the flavour.
    One thing you can do is use more instant coffee than water. This will give the coffee more flavour and make it less watered down. You can also try using various instant coffee or adding some sugar or milk to the mix.
    If you’re looking for an improved taste, you can also try making your own instant coffee. Start by brewing some fresh coffee using your preferred method. Once it’s brewed, let it cool down completely before transferring it to a blender or food processor and blending until smooth.

  2. Yes definitely. Instant coffee has already been brewed. Then freeze dried. It just needs water,. The coffee doesn’t know if it’s hot or cold. Nor does it care! 🙂 Only you will care.

  3. Instant coffee ? This question is actually not clear enough to me. So kindly reframe your question. The little contribution I can make is; coffee beverage can be served cold or hot depending on the requirement of the consumer.
    Note: Hot water is needed to brew the grounded coffee and all coffee machine heats up to a certain temperature before allowing it’s user to brew the Coffee.

  4. Yes, you can make instant coffee in cold water. It may take a little longer to dissolve completely, but it will dissolve. Because instant coffee is dehydrated regular coffee , it will easily dissolve in any temperature water, provided there’s enough of it (which there will be if you follow the directions).
    In fact, many people actually prefer instant coffee when making iced coffee, iced lattes, and other cold beverages. This avoids the hassle of brewing coffee and cooling it down in the refrigerator (takes forever) or with ice cubes (waters it down). It also takes far less time than making cold brew coffee.
    Of course, instant coffee doesn’t taste as good as freshly brewed coffee. For that reason, I’d really recommend committing to a regular cold brewed coffee routine. But if you still want to add instant coffee to cold water to make iced coffee, consider Starbucks Via packets.

  5. Yes, absolutely! In fact, some coffee experts claim that mixing instant coffee in cold water first will help create a more flavorful and smooth cup of coffee. It is believed that when you use hot or boiling water, some of the flavors will be evaporated and lost through the steam. On the other hand, when using cold water to make instant coffee, it’s believed that the granules will dissolve more gently when mixed.
    The only drawback I noticed when using cold water is that it will take slightly longer to completely dissolve the coffee compared to just using hot water. While there is some difference in flavor profile, the difference is very subtle. Regardless, it doesn’t hurt to try using cold water first to see if your coffee will taste better.
    To use cold water first, mix equal parts instant coffee with equal parts cold water. For example, if you use 1 tablespoon of instant coffee, then use 1 tablespoon of cold water. Then mix thoroughly to create a concentrated shot of cold instant coffee. From here, you can either add hot or cold water, depending on your preferences.

  6. You can make it with cold water, but the the coffee powder usually does not dissolve completely then, leaving you with a cold, powdery and watery mess that shouldn’t be called coffee… You can, of course, use hot water and let it cool, if for some reason you want cold instant coffee.

  7. Some instant coffee brand has cold water solvent option, so yes it can.
    For those not, can’t or hardly dissolved using cold water.
    Here’s in Indonesia we have Good day brand. They has cold and hot water solvent option. I’ve tried it and it dissolved pretty nicely but has to shake a bit harder than usual.
