Tips and Notes

Some people make the mistake of using the wrong coffee powder. Within the instant coffee powder range, you should get the granular type of instant coffee and not the finely ground one.

The finely powdered one won’t generate the foam even if you were to try to beat it for half an hour. So, don’t waste your time. If the store near you stocks the Indian instant coffee variety, that might be the best choice.

If you are good at experimenting, you may try a couple of instant coffee powders before deciding on the best one for your whipped coffee.

If you decide to use blender instead of a whisk or a spoon, do not use a immersion blender because if you do so the heat that is generated by using it will make the coffee taste bitter.
