Instant Coffee

As a matter of interest, the aroma that greets you when opening a jar of instant coffee is added by spraying unnatural coffee oils just before sealing the jar. This process was started by Maxwell House in the 1950"s - for purely psychological effects on consumers!

Instant coffee was invented, in Chicago, by a Japanese-American, Satori Kato - in 1901. The first mass-produced instant coffee was developed by George Constant Washington, an English chemist, living in Guatemala - he sold it under the name Red E Coffee. The superior method of freeze-drying - producing granules -was invented by Nestle in 1938.
