Look, I know what you're thinking. Instant coffee is just reserved for camping trips and emergency situations. But Waka Coffee is here to change that. After I talked to David Kovalevski before trying it myself, I explained my hesitation, and he took it in stride and said he heard it a lot and hope's Waka can change my mind. And honestly, it did. What regular instant coffee does is well, just that, make coffee instant. Waka Coffee is 100% freeze dried arabica coffee, which means it's not just easy to make, but it tastes pretty damn good. My best tip is to use an electric kettle and heat the water to between 195 and 205 degrees before pouring it over the uh, coffee nuggets. It won't burn the coffee and it'll be drinkable pretty quickly. Plus, 4% of sales go to funding clean water projects through our "Add Water, Give Water" program. - Jillian Lucas
