With four ingredients and no special device or machine you can make one of the best tasting coffee at home with Nescafe. It takes also less than 15 minutes to make this awesome homemade instant coffee.

When in blues, I make this frothy coffee for myself and this is the method I use. I like the cappuccino and lattes made in baristas and cafes. So when I want to savor a cafe style coffee, I make a cuppa for myself. I also make cappuccino and latte with this method on occasions.

Since this method is entirely homemade and You do not need any special machine or device, i thought of sharing it. Plus the coffee also tastes damn good. You have to try it for yourself.

I have used Nescafe classic instant coffee but you can also use Bru instant coffee (for Indian readers). You can even make a vegan coffee. Use almond milk or soy milk and just heat it. No need to boil.

The first part of this cafe style coffee recipe is beating the coffee with a spoon briskly and vigorously. Hence this coffee is also called as beaten coffee. In many Indian homes, including mine, beaten coffee is made. Here the coffee is beaten with milk till its frothy.

In India we call coffee made with this method as beaten coffee. though in my home, we are mostly tea drinkers, but beaten coffee is made at times. I will also share the method of making Indian beaten coffee in some time.

  1. Hii Dassanaji,
    Dassanaji, the beating of coffee serves just one purpose which is foam formation? Or is there any other reason? Is there any impact on the taste?
    Thank you.

    1. beating coffee makes the coffee concoction lighter and better in terms of taste and flavor. obviously, it also helps in foam fermentation. you have to try the technique to know that it really elevates the coffee flavor and taste. thanks.
