How to make the perfect cup of coffee

Greenlydia - A South African Travel Blog

No matter where you travel to and what you drink, nothing makes you feel quite as happy as a good cup of coffee and a great view.

After much debate (with friends and family all over the world) I have decided that the following method is the best one to create that perfect cuppa.

Step 1 – Boil water

Step 2 – Add 1 teaspoon of instant coffee & 1 teaspoon of brown sugar into a mid-sized mug.

Step 3 – Add 3 tablespoons of fresh cream to the mug. (yes cream, yes that little. Trust me)

Step 4 – heat mixture in microwave for 20 seconds.

Step 5 – Stir mixture until dissolved.

Step 6 – Add rapidly boiling water. (fill cup to one finger from brim)

Step 7 – Stir well.

Step 8 – Pull up Greenlydia on your phone and catch up on the latest posts.

Step 9 – Find a spot near a window and enjoy a good read with this amazing cup of coffee.




We own a Nespresso machine but sometimes you just don’t feel like using it, you know? I have had instant coffee from all over the world. Its all pretty crappy but by adding cream instead of milk it helps.

Go make coffee and plan your weekend.
