Making Coffee in Space

by Shane McGlaun

It has to be strange living on the International Space Station for months at a time. Every time I see a video from inside the ISS, I think about how there are no true floors or ceilings . There is equipment placed on just about every surface. Take this photo for instance, what is the ceiling from our perspective has a laptop sitting there at a workstation. I guess that makes sense, as there is no real “up” or “down in microgravity.

In this recent ISS video, ESA astronaut Tim Peake shows us how you go about making a cup, or pouch of coffee as the case may be. Unlike here on Earth, it doesn’t require grinding beans and putting them into a Mr. Coffee.

It starts with digging a foil pouch that looks like a bag of Capri Sun out of a storage container. Peake then floats over to the hot water machine and attaches the pouch. Hot water is then injected into the pouch where it mixes with some sort of presumably freeze dried instant coffee, cream, and sugar substitute to make hot coffee. Mmmm. Delicious.
