  1. Is a teaspoon of instant coffee the same strength as a tsp of ground coffee beans?
    So you are asking a question that presupposes that the same amount of instant coffee is the same strength as the same amount of ground coffee. Does that mean you do not know what instant coffee is. Or is this a dumb question?

  2. No. A teaspoon of instant coffee is the usual amount to make a cup (actually, a 6 ounce “coffee cup”) of normal strength coffee. It takes one to two tablespoons of ground coffee to produce a brew of similar strength. This is because the beans also contain non-soluble components that do not contribute to the coffee flavor.

  3. It hard to answer to that since we don’t exactly know how the instant coffee was made and even though we could know, the type of coffee beans (arabica, liberica or robusta), the type of grinding (coarse, medium, fine), the roast of the coffee, in general the profile of the coffee, will change the final flavor of it. If the grind is too fine, then more coffee will fit into the spoon but the time that the coffee goes into the water is important too. The more surface of coffee is touch with the water and time the strongest it will get. There are a lot of things you have to consider. Some people think that strong is about the flavor, others think that more caffeinated means stronger.

  4. No. Instant coffee is dehydrated brewed coffee that you’re rehydrating, where ground coffee beans are as yet to be brewed. The amount of drinkable liquid coffee from one teaspoon of ground coffee beans, once dehydrated, would only result in a fraction of a teaspoon.
