Ordinary powdered coffee from a tin/jar has a tendency to contain stuff (preservatives? not sure) which sends me a bit troppo, & it also has effects which kick in quite strongly, leading one to go from vaguely tired to an incredibly overshot awakefulness.
However, some ingenious Indonesians have found a simple way to make this all manageable — yet attractive.
“Intra® Jahe Kopi” comes in boxes of 20 bungkus, each of 25g, & it’s basically Ginger Coffee.
The result is that you (well, I) can enthusiastically consume the stuff without losing the plot: allegro ma non troppo.
It’s a moderately gentle way of remaining alert. Oh, & it tastes excellent! (-:
