OK, let's make this clear: we call it Brown Rice Instant Coffee because this is what its maker calls it, but this isn't actual coffee. No, it's powdered brown rice, roasted like coffee and ready to use the way you would instant coffee. Yes, the "instant" part is absolutely accurate! In other words, the only thing you need to make a delicious cup is water, either hot or cold depending on the season or your taste. And perhaps some honey.
Despite glutinous white rice being their staple, the Japanese have known the benefits of brown rice for ages - they even called it "brown god" for its antioxidant and medicinal properties against colds, fevers, and intestine trouble. With the Brown Rice Instant Coffee, you can explore these benefits too, enjoying the taste of coffee (because of the roasting) but without worrying about caffeine (since it doesn't contain any). You've tried Japanese tea, so here's your chance to try something equally Japanese and equally nutritious - but quite different!
