Hi there...I add instant coffee to both the vanilla and chocolate shakes...and have done it with the IP versions as well as the EAS carb advantage shakes (actually prefer EAS because they are 11 oz). The EAS also heats better in micro wave for a hot drink in the AM...but now that it's hot they are also yummy blended with ice in the afternoon. I believe a few people use leftover coffee to make ice cubes for this purpose. (We never have any coffee left over...I need to remember to make a bigger pot!) Also don't find the need to crush the coffee...it dissolves in hot liquids, or when blended is incorporated just fine. I usually use about 2 rounded tsps...and ALWAYS use decaf instant. I just want the flavor...
