One of the great things about this lovely and luscious mug of coffee recipe is that it can be made ahead of time and stored for later enjoyment. To make this recipe ahead of time, simply follow the instructions as normal, but store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

When reheating your prepared coffee, heat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or until it reaches your desired temperature. If you prefer to reheat on the stove, gently reheat in a small saucepan over low heat.

As for storage, keep any unused instant coffee granules in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. If stored properly, your instant coffee will last up to six months.

Finally, when serving your lovely and luscious mug of coffee recipe, you may want to add whipped cream, cocoa powder or even some chocolate chips on top! Just remember to enjoy it while it’s still hot!

Tips for Perfect Results

Now that you have the recipe for a lovely and luscious mug of coffee, let’s talk about some tips and techniques that will help you make the perfect cup every time.

1. Use Boiling Water

For the best flavor, always start with boiling water. When your water is too cool, it won’t extract all of the flavors from your coffee grounds, leaving you with a weaker cup. So be sure to boil your water before adding it to your mug.

2. Stir and Add Gradually

When making the instant coffee mixture, stir in the water gradually to avoid any clumps. Adding the water all at once can create lumps or bumps in your mixture. Take your time, and do it gradually so you can get an even consistency.

3. Experiment with Ratios

Want a stronger or weaker cup of coffee? Play around with the ratio of instant coffee to water until you find your perfect balance. Start with two tablespoons of instant coffee to eight ounces of water, then adjust up or down as needed.

4. Try Different Variations

One of the best things about this recipe is how easy it is to switch things up. If you’re not in the mood for a traditional mug of coffee, try making a luscious mocha lush dessert or even a mocha cake recipe that’s rich and luscious. You can also add in different flavors like cocoa butter or make a luscious black coffee by omitting any additional ingredients.

5. Pair With Your Favorite Treats

Coffee is always better with something sweet! Pair your lovely and luscious mug of coffee with some delicious treats like a golden pear cafe cookbook or berry chantilly cake slice or even hot chocolate recipes – there are so many options out there!

By following these tips and experimenting with variations, you’ll be well on your way to creating the perfect cup of coffee every time. Enjoy!

Bottom Line

In conclusion, the lovely and luscious mug of coffee recipe is guaranteed to make you fall in love with coffee all over again.

I used to be a major coffee snob, buying the best beans, grinding them myself, looking down my nose at people who drank instant coffee. Then I went off coffee for a while.

This is my favorite cup of coffee, my first aaaaahhhhhh of the morning. Use 1 15 ounce mug (with Recipezaar logo -- see note below)
