Top Ten Soluble Product Manufacturers
Instant coffee (brands are presented below) is very popular in our country. Indeed, up to 80% of the coffee market in Russia falls precisely on it.

However, among such products there are quality varieties. It is about them that will be discussed in the future.
1. The Bushido Brand
These are Japanese products, which are made to order in Switzerland. For the production of such coffee, only the best varieties of beans are selected that undergo a special gentle treatment, during which all their taste and aroma are preserved. Such a mixture is delivered to our country in small quantities, which explains its high cost (100 grams of powder costs about 1000 rubles).
