I recently had coffee in India and it was quite thick. The way they made it they took instant coffee+sugar+little bit of water. They then beat this mixture into a thick paste. Then they added hot water and it turned out really delicious.

I really liked it; however, I'm wondering if it's possible to make this without using instant coffee? I'm not a big fan of instant coffee and have specific coffee beans I'm really a big fan of. I'm a coffee nooob so any advice on making a similarly thick coffee recipe?

    Erm, “instant coffee + sugar + water + more water” sounds like, well, sweetened instant coffee? Could you explain how thick it is or roughly what ratios they used? – Stephie Aug 12 at 9:10
  • @stephie The recipes generally use condensed milk at some point. That's why they end up thick. – MT San 2 days ago
  • Sorry @Jack, is this a typo? I think it should be like this: "I recently had coffee in India and it was quite thick. The way they made it they took instant coffee+sugar+little bit of water. They then beat this mixture into a thick paste. Then they added condensed warm milk and it turned out really delicious." – MT San 2 days ago

Just like you described it. Add water a little by little, then took a spoon and swirl it. Then repeat, maintaining a thick paste, it will start to have a creamy colour. The most important thing is DON'T ADD TOO MUCH WATER until the pasta is ready (you will know when), then it's ready to fill your cup with water and drink it (it will have a lot of cream, basically created by swirling and aeration).

Just try it and then repeat next time if it doesn't go as you want to.

    Can this be done with regular coffee instead of instant? – Stephie 2 days ago
  • Nope. "Regular coffee" will never dissolve into water :( – Omar Miranda 22 hours ago
  • I meant „regular“ in the sense of „already prepared, brewed“. Sorry for the confusion. – Stephie 16 hours ago
