  1. Probably not. It doesn’t make any difference to this answer if the coffee is instant, slow brewed, or whatever. That would be a fairly moderate amount of coffee, unlikely to be harmful.
    Depending on how caffeinated the coffee is it might be enough to get you habituated to it, meaning the caffeine would no longer be stimulating you so much as bringing you back up to your normal baseline. Not a health risk, but you may find yourself drinking more and more coffee to get the same effect. Eventually that could be a problem.

  2. Always eat and drink in moderation as with all food and drink. You will realize it when you drink too much coffee. Your heart will start to palpitate. It could be worse with instant coffee.

  3. As long as you’re totaling 2–3 cups of coffee made from instant powder it should be ok. If you mean actually drinking 2–3 cups of the instant coffee, it may be a bit much…

  4. The only ways in which it is harmful to drink 2–3 cups of instant coffee per day are:
    You will need to use a toilet more frequently than otherwise would be the case.
    Resulting dehydration might be a problem if you exercise vigorously.
    Instant coffee tastes bad; fresh-brewed, using a good coffee maker, tastes much better.

  5. If you look at the history of the study of the health impacts of coffee, you will see a see-saw (or pendulum, if you prefer) of opinions from:
    Coffee is the most wonderful thing ever to have been given to us by the gods, to
    Coffee is a vile and harmful beverage that should,never cross your lips.
    The problem with a huge percentage of these studies is that they either use inappropriate analytical methodology (especially older studies) or the conclusions are stated far too definitively when one actually looks at the data. The conclusions rarely match the results. A number of recent studies were in vitro (literally: “in glass,” meaning in lab, but not done in living tissue or organisms) analyses of chemicals in the coffee and used someone else’s data to say whether the concentration of that in a cup of coffee was significant or not. Problems in statistics are often widespread because of small sample sizes when looking at humans or making insignificant results look significant—usually by the language used in expressing the conclusions or in the reporting by the popular media.
    So, where are we today?
    The general consensus among medical researchers and medical scientists—as well as physicians and scientifically trained dieticians—is that coffee is not harmful to the average human being and can even be healthful in some situations. 1–3 cups of coffee a day is considered neutral to even “good” for you. More than 4 cups is still being evaluated as “???” because it seems to be good for some folks, of little to no impact on some people, but troublesome for others.
    In other words: “You mileage may vary.”
    Anecdotally, I know there are days that 1 cup in the morning does nothing to pick me up, but other days when 1 cup gets me wired for a couple hours. I usually consume 2–3 cups daily—all before about 1pm. If I drink coffee in the afternoon, I sometimes find it difficult to get to or stay asleep at regular bedtime and my acid reflux tends to be a problem when I lay in bed. On the other hand; every once in a while I will make a special evening cup of coffee and have no trouble sleeping and the reflux issue is not present.

  6. I am a lifelong coffee enthusiast and have started to drink it at age 9. Most of the time, it’s been filter coffee, as of late, for some 7 years now, we have been using an espresso machine.
    Back in the Nineties in Northern Mexico, Nescafe was all you could get. There was ground coffee, but it had other stuff such as roasted sugar in it or was made from Rustico beans. Good coffee is made from Arabica beans exclusively, at least in my world.
    Nescafe, or any other brand of instant coffee can be made strong or weak, so it does matter how big your cup is and how strong you make it.
    We had about four to five of them, an 8 ounce cup with a heaped teaspoon of instant coffee.
    Never had any problems other than acid reflux on my side. Instant coffee gives me these issues quite often. One cup per day is fine, but regularly 2 or more will make itselfe noted. Same thing goes for most U.S. style ground coffee, specially Folger’s. It is roasted way to weakly and is very acidic. In order to get some taste, we needed to use a lot of grinds.
    That is why I would recommend to use a…

  7. Unfortunately, the answer to the question is a frustrating yes and no.
    The evidence points to the potential for instant coffee to have more of an unhealthy impact on our bodies than regularly brewed coffee. However, more research is needed at this time.
