Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee In The News
A woman in Australia posted a quick coffee-drinking “hack” (think: shortcut) on a Facebook group for new moms. She showed a Douwe Egberts jar of Pure Gold Instant coffee with sugar filled in the removable lid. That way she had her coffee and her sugar conveniently in one place – spoon one of each into a mug, then add hot water. She demonstrated in pictures how to remove the top, then take the plastic cover off of the lid. Fill the glass lid with sugar, pop the plastic cover back on, and put the lid on the jar. As the Dutch say: Alstublieft! (There you have it!)
After posting the hack, the group was inspired! Other members posted their own ideas for the jars. They included:
–Hummus in the lid, with cut-up vegetables in the jar
–Yogurt in the lid, with chopped up fruit in the jar
–Use the lid alone for raisins or other small bites
The post also noted that the lid seals tight, so there’s no spillage with any ingredients.
We found some other great ideas for repurposing the jars too, and would love to hear your ideas too. (Tell us about your best one on our Facebook page!)

Try these tasty drinks using instant coffee, a great way to make iced coffee.
Creamy Iced Coffee
- 6 oz prepared Douwe Egberts Instant Coffee
- 3 oz cream liqueur (RumChata, Bailey’s, for example)
- 1 oz vodka
Fill a pint glass with ice. Pour over prepared coffee, then add the vodka. Gently add the cream liqueur and stir.
- 4 blackberries
- 1 oz prepared strong black coffee
- 1 ½ oz gin
- ½ oz simple syrup
- ½ oz orange juice
Muddle (crush) the berries at the bottom of a cocktail shaker with a muddler, or a large spoon. Add the remaining ingredients, then ice. Cover and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into a glass with ice. Garnish with an orange slice and/or a blackberry. Enjoy!
NOTE: Simple syrup is made with equal parts sugar and water heated in a pan until the sugar is dissolved. Store in refrigerator up to a couple of weeks.
As always, enjoy better coffee and thanks from the EnjoyBetterCoffee Team!
