Comparing Drip Bags, Instant Coffee, and Freeze-Dried Coffee: A Score-Based Analysis

When it comes to enjoying a quick cup of coffee, convenience is often a top priority. Drip bags, Instant coffee and freeze-dried coffee have long been popular choices for their ease of preparation.

Here's a detailed look at the benefits of each method, rated on a 5-point scale for various criteria.

*These ratings are thoughts of our own and do not represent any brand in particular.

Drip bags emerge as the top choice for those seeking a balance of convenience, quality, and sustainability, offering a superior coffee experience compared to instant and freeze-dried coffee.

1. Superior Flavor Profile

Drip Bags: 5/5 Drip bags contain freshly ground coffee, allowing hot water to extract the coffee's full range of flavors, resulting in a richer, more nuanced cup. The slow extraction process enhances the coffee's natural sweetness and acidity.

Instant Coffee: 2/5 Instant coffee often lacks flavor complexity and aroma due to the high-temperature processes used to create it. This results in a more uniform and less vibrant taste.

Freeze-Dried Coffee: 3/5 Freeze-dried coffee retains more flavor than instant coffee due to the low-temperature drying process, but it still cannot match the depth and complexity of drip bag coffee.

2. Freshness and Quality

Drip Bags: 5/5 Drip bags are packed with freshly ground coffee, maintaining a higher level of freshness. The use of high-quality, specialty-grade beans ensures premium quality.

Instant Coffee: 2/5 Instant coffee often uses lower quality beans and undergoes processes that diminish the coffee's original qualities, leading to a stale taste over time.

Freeze-Dried Coffee: 3/5 Freeze-dried coffee retains more flavor than instant coffee, but the significant processing impacts its freshness and overall quality. The equipment for producing high quality freeze-dried coffee is also not common accessible in Singapore.

This means your freeze-dried coffee could have been mass produced by OEM factories in China and the shipping and production time might impact the freshness of the coffee.

3. Convenience

Drip Bags: 4/5 Drip bags are easy to use, requiring no additional equipment beyond a kettle and a cup. They offer a quality cup of coffee with minimal fuss, though slightly more effort than instant coffee.

Instant Coffee: 5/5 Instant coffee is extremely convenientβ€”just add hot water and stir. This simplicity is its greatest advantage for those with busy lifestyles.

Freeze-Dried Coffee: 5/5 Freeze-dried coffee matches instant coffee in convenience, offering a quick preparation method with just hot water and stirring.

4. Portability

Drip Bags: 5/5 Drip bags are highly portable, individually packaged for freshness, and ideal for travel, camping, or office use. Their compact design makes them easy to pack and use anywhere with access to hot water.

Instant Coffee: 5/5 Instant coffee is also highly portable, with single-serve packets that are lightweight and compact. It’s perfect for quick caffeine fixes on the go.

Freeze-Dried Coffee: 5/5 Freeze-dried coffee is equally portable, offering the same single-serve convenience as instant coffee, making it a suitable option for travel and outdoor activities.

5. Control Over Brewing

Drip Bags: 5/5 Drip bags offer control over the brewing process, allowing adjustments to water temperature and pour rate for a personalized coffee experience. This customization helps achieve optimal flavor extraction.

Instant Coffee: 1/5 Instant coffee offers little to no control over the brewing process. The pre-brewed and pre-measured coffee limits customization and fine-tuning.

Freeze-Dried Coffee: 1/5 Freeze-dried coffee also lacks control over brewing variables, offering the same limitations as instant coffee in terms of customization.

6. Environmental Impact

Drip Bags: 4/5 Many drip bags are made with biodegradable materials and the grounds can be composted, reducing waste. Companies are also moving towards sustainable practices and eco-friendly packaging.

Instant Coffee: 2/5 Instant coffee packaging often includes non-recyclable materials, contributing to environmental waste. The production process is energy-intensive, making it less sustainable.

Freeze-Dried Coffee: 3/5 Freeze-dried coffee packaging can also be non-recyclable, though it is generally less wasteful than instant coffee. The freeze-drying process is more energy-efficient than spray drying but still not as eco-friendly as drip bags.

Have been a long time fan and subscriber of Yasumi coffee. Took on their subscription plan since I begun my coffee journey at home and never had to look elsewhere. They offer a wide range of flavours and origins, you can also customize your grind size if required. Freshly roasted beans every Tues and delivered to your doorstep. Highly recommended for all coffee enthusiast out there!


Great coffee and service! Flexible coffee subscriptions and their Coffee Tour lets you try many different types of beans every order

Damien Koh
Evelyn Koh

bought the beans as a gift and I was told they were great! made a repeat purchase to try the others and they really loved those too. Yasumi offers a decent variety to try and I think the price point is really great for what you're getting.

hayden tay

The ease of coffee subscription cannot get any easier and fuss free. Not to mention the coffee taste superb. The coffee packet is almost always empty.

Cattier Sha

We enjoy the latte so much brew with yasumi Colombia bean! After a trial I've decided to keep the subscription and receive the fresh high quality coffee bean regularly.

Jerry Wong

Had some trouble with my mailing address and customer support was very patient and responsive

Wayne Tai

Tried almost all the different coffee origins available. Loved the Indonesian, Columbian and Ethiopian ones best. Delivery direct to mailbox has been flawless. Online platform for subscription changes and promo codes is very convenient. Started out wanting to get the free trial only but have been continually hooked onto their service!

Decided to try Yasumi as i cam across their page, got a free bag of beans to try and i tried it today. Pretty convinced to continue my subscription with them👍🏻

Alina Wang

Great and fresh coffee. Nice service. Highly recommend 👍

Arjie Tupaz

There customer service was excellent, they were able to resolve the issues the raised regarding my subscription

eric lim

I really love how Yasumi makes it super easy for us customers to buy things! Their website is so easy to navigate, and they always give clear descriptions of their products. Plus, it's awesome that they often throw in discount codes for our next order or purchase. It's like getting a little treat every time we shop with them!

Joey Lai

Coffee is freshly roasted and I always receive them very swiftly! Appreciate the friendly and responsive customer support as well :) Very honest, local roasters!

YangShi YS

Completely hooked! One of my joys now is to look forward to my coffee delivery and indulged in that addictive aroma. The coffee bean are roasted to perfection. No any other coffee bean come close.

EH Chua

yasumi makes coffee deliveries super easy!

Matthew Ling

Good customer support

Foo Yongkuan

Got the light roast, high acidity beans. Well suited to my liking! Can't wait for the next bag! Subscription was fast, love the extra goodies that came along with it like the flavor profile card and the coffee flavor wheel!

Jing Jiho
Jay Sern Lim

Signed up for the trial and only paid $0.99 for delivery. Received the coffee promptly after a few days in my letterbox. Packaging is SO cute and they even included tasting notes of the coffee beans sent! They even included a sample of another coffee bean for free :') Coffee beans were freshly roasted and smelt amazing when they arrived too :)


Superb Quality of Specialty Coffee available

Bernard Chia

It’s so convenient to make my regular cup at home with a coffee subscription. Yasumi coffee provides a satisfying cup of coffee with great customer service. Extending my subscription is a breeze, whenever I can’t finish my coffee in time… this ensures I get the best roast possible.

mabel khaw

great coffee and service. a little in the expensive end but they deliver in terms of quality

Shrishti Garg

The trial pack is of course of great value and the experience of buying from Yasumi is seamless. The "Rwanda" washed coffee is a great filter roast.


One of my favourite coffee subscription services in Singapore: user-friendly interface, great rewards for continued subscription, and most important of all, I enjoy the beans!

Min H

Love the customer service from Yasumi. Have tried Brazil dark roast, Colombia and Nicaragua coffee beans. Enjoyed all 3 roasts very much. Yasumi coffee beans is of great quality. Amazing aromas!

MeiYin Chew

I stopped buying coffee outside when I can have cafe standard (even better than most cafe) coffee at home. I really enjoy Yasumi coffee, Brazil single origin. Perfectly, freshly roasted, not acidic, and nice aroma😉

Adrian Wan

I've tried different coffee subscription services before, and Yasumi is the best I've used. I make espressos at home, and their beans are excellent. I've had to ask for help with my subscription before and they were always very helpful and patient.


I do really love the YASUMI Coffee! It brings much much convenient for me, I have an espresso machine at home, so I could make a great cup of coffee everyday. Fresh grind the whole bean, fresh brew the double shot, fresh steam the milk, and then, a fresh cup of specialty coffee. I have order with YASUMI coffee since last year, which Im really happy with the fresh whole bean which deliver to my mail box everytime! and the teams are so cute that everytime will send you an email to inform you that your coffee is going to roast, going to deliver. And the other thing I like YASUMI is becuz they are very flexible which I could skip the slot when I need to travel. Appreciate a lot!

Chanced upon Yasumi on Instagram and decided to give them a try β€” was pleasantly surprised by an extra sample bag given and also the cards describing the coffee's tasting notes and processing description etc. Will definitely be repurchasing :)

Simon Y

Just brewed a cup of Tropic Daydream. Wonderful blend, so delicious. Right amount of acidity and body. Great customer service and responds to email timely. Thanks for the rebates as well.

Yong Sheng Tan

Great coffee at affordable prices

Nathaniel yew

- Love the coffee - convenient - great customer experience

Jasmine Teo

Love the coffee beans and the flexibility to choose the type of beans as well as when I want the beans to be delivered

Cassie Li

I got a trial subscription, the morning cup, and the French press. Customer service was great, and the package came fast. I tried both Brazil and Tropic Daydream. They were super aromatic and made my day. Looking forward to trying other coffee beans for my next subscription.

Michal Polak

Love the coffee, always flexible to change the coffee flavour and comes in time!

I started with the free trial and got hooked! Already tried 3 of 6 of their coffee and 4th one awaiting to be delivered. Beans are well roasted, flavourful and fresh.

Jeffrey Teo

Updated review on 18/4: The support team has reached promptly to explain the delayed shipment. Mentioned that my shipment was delayed because I placed an order after their roasting date, which I find the explanation satisfactory. And I received my subscription of coffee yesterday. It tasted great. Excellent service recovery team Yasumi 👌 Earlier review on 14/4: My subscription is due for renewal in 1 day but my earlier order hasn't been received despite placing an order 1 week ago. I don't like to be charged for a renewal product when my earlier product hasn't been shipped out and received. I will consider changing my review when the management looks into this. I have cancelled my earlier subscription.

Alan Tan

Very quick response to my question that is accurately and clearly explained. The professionally designed online platform is customer centric and paid attention to details. I hope the coffee I’ll be receiving will be as good if not exceed my expectations. Pretty sure it will. Looking forward to my caffeine fix soon! Yes! Got my coffee earlier than expected. Got my caffeine fixed. Love the taste and can’t ask for more.

Jane Chiang

Coffee with origins and no regrets trying out! Grind is consistent, the fragrant and beans are all fresh!

Yi Wei Toh

I ordered a trial subscription. The package came fast and the beans were well packed (despite being unregistered mail). The additional 60g X'mas sample was a nice surprise as it was meant to be a 120g trial and I actually really liked it. Usually do pourover or espresso at home with a hand grinder.

Emily C.

A great coffee subscription service that makes my daily coffee a breeze - particularly love the ability to delay a delivery by a week or two so I can finish my existing beans before new ones arrive!

Thomas Suparto

First Time experience with coffee beans from Yasumi and will never go back to the previous brand of coffee. Yasumi all the way!!!

Joan Lee
Jing Yin

Love the freshly roasted coffee beans and warm customer service! Recommend to try!

Stefanie Lee

Great trial, and they even gave an extra bag of coffee DURING THE FREE TRIAL!
