Instant Coffee Jar, Coffee Canister, Embossed, Porcelain, Container, Kitchen Decor
A cute coffee jar/canister. It is white porcelain with various images and splattered gold trim. This would be cute on a counter, on a tray when serving instant coffee, or on a shelf as decor. These types of containers were very popular when instant coffee was first introduced in the late '30s through the '50s. Instant coffee, also called soluble coffee, coffee crystals, and coffee powder is a beverage derived from brewed coffee beans that enable people to quickly prepare hot coffee by adding hot water or milk to the powder or crystals and stirring. Instant coffee is commercially prepared by either freeze-drying or spray drying, after which it can be rehydrated. Advantages of instant coffee include the speed of preparation (instant coffee dissolves quickly in hot water), lower shipping weight and volume than beans or ground coffee (to prepare the same amount of beverage), and long shelf life—though instant coffee can spoil if not kept dry. In the times of the Second World War, instant coffee was very popular among the soldiers. Around 1938, Nescafe became the most popular brand.
