I am mourning.. Not only instant coffee. All those products like
burger w/o meat and wheat, fruit ice w/o fruits, fully denatured soya
and so on! All those substances killing the brain cells of the so
called individuals.

Manufacturer's standpoint, (as one example purports), what with water-
carbon (H2O/C) and dichloromethane methods, neither need effect a want
of .0008 to .0025 extracted caffeine, as a quality of flavor
reasonably expected and similarly qualified for good decaffeinated
coffee [indeed, no less ambiguously qualified to caffeinated SO/
blends. Whereas in another method...] Triglyceride oils are first
derived from spent coffee grinds, to in turn be employed on beans
within heated water, heated so as to draw caffeine to the surface for
the triglyceride to attenuate caffeine concentrate, as the final
reactant, again without adverse impact upon subsequent flavor.

Considering .8% to 2.5% volumetric caffeine content, both industrial
instances would seem suggest some degree of inconsequence a
constituent flavoring caffeine affects.

Within an import decaffeinated coffee implicates a synthesis, however,
that in distinguishing a causal product for a sum of reactants, form
is to then conceived for a new substance and operative facsimile;--
And, so by degree acetates and chlorides, Swiss-water/carbon treatment
or triglycerides uniquely vie as inimitable coffee clones*, best put
before a target market.

THE FIRST INSTANT COFFEE

The previous posters have it about right. According to Ukers (1922
ed.) p. 538, Sartaro Kato a Japanese chemist brought a soluble tea to
Chicago in 1899. Though not successful it brought him in contact with
some chemists and coffeemen and he produced a soluble coffee that same
year. Among the partners in the new Kato Coffee Co. would be I.D.
Richheimer a Chicago area wholesale coffee roaster.

The product was first introduced to the public at the Pan-American
Exposition held in Buffalo, NY from May 1 to November 2, 1901. On
Aug. 11, 1903 the US issued a patent Kato for soluble coffee according
to Ukers and to www.villegaseditores.com. I was unable to find the
patent in a superficial internet search.

Soluble coffee began to be called "instant coffee" when it began to be
seriously mass marketed as a convenience food after World War II.

The Richheimer's eventually sold their roasting business (at the time
Chicago's 3rd largest after Continental and Superior) to the Wechsler
Coffee Corporation of Moonachie New Jersey in the early 1970's.
Wechsler in turn sold its business to Sara Lee Corporation in the
1990's. Sara Lee (who also purchased Continental and Superior Coffee
companies) is the nations largest roaster/distributor to the hotel/
restaurant/institutional trade. They do not market supermarket
brands. They are one of several large roasters that produces coffee
for Dunkin Donuts.

Instant coffee contains ingredients other than coffee. "Pure Instant
Coffee" is not pure coffee. It is coffee, agglamorators to make the
natural pale coffee powder appear as coffee grounds or crystals,
coloring to mock the appearance of ground coffee, and aromatizers to
make the odorless powder smell as fresh roasted coffee.

For economic reasons most instant coffee is now produced in coffee
origin countries. Among those producing for the North American
market are Mexico, Colombia, and Brazil.
