Everything in One Packet

If you are a Korean, or have spent some time in Korea, you know what this is: it’s called “Coffee Mix.” Basically it’s a portable instant coffee packet containing a perfect(?) combination of instant coffee, prima, and white sugar, for one cup of coffee. But a notion of “one cup” is largely different from what you would think of one cup in U.S. You will have to use hot water equivalent amount of, maybe four sips – more than that would turn that delicious combination of three elements into a brown color yucky water tasting nothing.
Supposedly not good for you, containing all that prima and white sugar, it’s also very addictive. I pretend I enjoy black coffee, made with fancy French press using coffee I just ground, but deep in my heart, I’m in love with this Coffee Mix. It’s my not so secretive guilty pleasure.
