Conlins Launches Lily’s Premium Instant Coffee

“What is coffee for you?” I was asked this question one rainy afternoon of September by no other than Eric Lim, COO of Conlins Coffee Company. I  just said one word – WARMTH. And I’m not just talking about the sensation that you feel when you hold a steaming hot cup of coffee. I was also referring to the warm, comfy feeling that I get whenever I have coffee at home or in a coffee shop with friends. Coffee, for me, helps make lasting moments. Don’t you agree?


This is the same experience that Eric wants to bring with every cup of coffee he brews and every product he creates. A licensed coffee Q grader,  he shared to us that afternoon how his love affair with coffee began. It was so touching that it got me teary-eyed because it hit home. Because Eric fondly remembered how, at a young age, he would prepare instant coffee for his late mom, Lily.


Just in time for the Christmas season, Conlins proudly launches its newest line of premium instant coffee made from special micro-ground roasts – Lily’s by Conlins. Inspired by nostalgia, Lily’s by Conlins comes in three distinct flavors that brim with warmth and sweetness:

The Royal Latte offers a rich heavenly brew that’s tempered with a fresh hint of honey. Whether for breakfast or for your afternoon coffee break, this latte instantly helps to perk up your senses.


For those who enjoy the delicateness of this Italian favorite, Lily’s Luxury Cappuccino serves a smooth experience with the same creamy lightness of milk. The final sprinkle of cinnamon on top makes for the perfect relaxing cup.


Lily’s Luxury Cocoa, on the other hand, is the ultimate temptation for adults who never outgrew their penchant for hot chocolate. An elevated version of the sweet treat, Lily’s Luxury Cocoa is a dark indulgent cup that beautifully melds the rich aromas and flavors of premium roast coffee. It offers a delightful balance of richness and sweetness that everyone will love.


With Lily’s premium instant coffee, it will just  require a bit of effort and creativity and you can have a bit of luxury in the comfort of your own home. You can create a foam of milk for your cappuccino and sprinkle it with chocolate powder just like we did that afternoon.


Or put some caramel or choco syrup on the foam and create pretty designs on it.


And of course, coffee is best paired with freshly prepared waffles. You guys are in for a treat because the guys at Coffee Lab are generous enough to share the recipe of the yummy waffles we had that afternoon.
