Intentional Observation: Instant coffee is weird

My wife and I like coffee. Particularly freshly ground beans roasted by the Bad Dog Beanery (website yet to be built) brewed in the french press. Every once in a while, though, I buy instant coffee to put in ice cream lattes. Usually the last few tablespoons end up unused, and the humidity turns what’s left into a solid mass clinging to the little bottle. Yesterday, as we packed up the kitchen, there were two such masses. However, I’d never seen any of it turn into what looks like glass. Until today.
