One thing about me is that I am definitely not a morning person. I have tried and failed terribly! I have struggled so much when it comes to having early mornings but I try to wake up as early as possible.
Even if I wake up early, I can’t seem to sleep early. So like the night owl I am, I prefer late nights and extended mornings. It currently works with my schedule and I am loving it! But those early mornings, I am quite groggy and need a pick me up. I kid you not, my energy levels are at 0. I wish I lived next to a proper coffee shop, I could be making runs every morning.
Since my situation is different at the moment, the nearest coffee shop is 30 – 45 minutes away (from home). That is not my cup of tea. I always need a quick coffee fix immediately so I opt to make my Homemade Instant Latte at home using a french press. There is no need for expensive equipment and the likes. We still need nice things on a budget, am I right?
Many people should know that they can make fancy coffee from the comfort of their home with literally, no equipment required! The taste is quite similar to what you buy in a coffee shop. Only difference is Instant Coffee is used in this recipe which, when the quality is compared, ground coffee beans are better. We use Instant Coffee because the coffee has to dissolve.
The 2 easiest ways to make Homemade Instant Latte with no equipment is by using a french press or a jar. I was to make a video showing the exact process but it quickly went downhill while recording.
For now, I will give a very detailed step by step that no one can mess up. For visual learners, this video will help you out.
