Instant coffee or soluble coffee or coffee powder, is a beverage derived from brewed coffee beans. Through various manufacturing process the coffee is dehydrated into the form of powder or granules. These can be rehydrated with hot water to provide a drink similar to conventional coffee. At least one brand of instant coffee is also available in concentrated liquid form.

The advantages of instant coffee are speed of preparation (instant coffee dissolves instantly in hot water), less weight and volume than beans or ground coffee to prepare the same amount of drink, and long shelf life. Coffee beans, and especially ground coffee, loss flavor as the essential oils evaporate over time.

Although it has long shelf life, instant coffee quickly spoils if it is not kept dry. In particular, the percentage of caffeine in instant coffee is less, and bitter flavor components are more evident.
