This Super Tasty Instant Coffee was prepared for Get Better Records and their "Sunday, Someday" release, a 5-way split. The coffee for this project was sourced by The Coffee Quest, from Pitalito in Huila, Colombia. It’s not uncommon for coffee buyers to cherry-pick producer’s highest scoring lots, leaving many producers struggling and unable to sell their product. The work in Pitalito represents a dedication to changing that and supporting producers by committing to purchase their entire harvests, year after year.

Proceeds from this coffee will go towards acoustic treatment for the Common Roads program at the Central PA LGBT Center.


From the source "Swift Cup reconsiders the entire production chain by starting with some of the highest quality fresh coffees available roasted with precision to maintain the nuance. From there, the coffee is very carefully extracted in concentrated form in individual doses, clarified to remove undissolved solids, and then slowly freeze dried to preserve those delicate nuances. It takes approximately 50 hours to produces 1 sachet of instant coffee before packaging. 26.5g of roasted coffee used per sachet."

How to brew it? A good starting point is 1g of instant coffee to 50g of hot water, or about 8oz of water per packet. But the fun doesn't stop there! Iced coffee, "espresso", milk drinks... all possible! In fact, add Swift Cup to any liquid you desire. Seriously, go crazy!
