3in1 coffee is an instant beverage widely drunk in Asia, though it is also getting popular in other parts of the world. It is a simple mixture of instant coffee, non-dairy creamer and refined cane sugar. 3in1 coffee is popular due to its convenience, affordable price and acceptable taste.
Most 3in1 coffeemix in the market are not exactly made with top-grade instant coffee and non-dairy creamer as retail prices for 3in1 coffeemix are very competitive.
A simple 3in1 coffeemix recipe includes the following ingredients:
- 2g of instant coffee
- 7-8g of non-dairy creamer
- 9-10g of refine cane sugar
Consumers easily take to the liking of 3in1 coffee as it offers convenience. Modern day’s busy lifestyle means that time saved by consuming 3in1 coffeemix instead of coffee prepared by other means is a big boon to consumers.
There are also premium-grade 3in1 coffeemixes offering decent cuppa to more discerning coffee drinkers. Cost wise, it is very reasonable as the industrial scale of production means 3in1 products are competitively priced.
In some cases where consumers do not regularly drink coffee, it might even be more economical to purchase 3in1 coffeemixes rather than buying instant coffee, non-dairy creamer and refined cane sugar separately and make the coffeemix themselves.

New 3in1 Coffee Trend
As the consumers got bored with the standard fares of Spray Dried Coffee, non-dairy creamer and refined cane sugar, 3in1 producers are now creating variations to the standard fares.
Instead of using spray dried coffee, freeze dried coffee is now being introduced to produce premium and better tasting 3in1 coffeemix. Health ingredients such as Ginseng, Lingzhi, Collagen, Oligofructose, Vitamin, Calcium and Tongkat ali are being added to add health claims to the products. 3in1 coffeemix with healthy slant are particularly popular with multi-level marketing companies in Asia. But we are seeing more and more of these products being sold in larger supermarkets nowadays.
Finely ground roast and ground coffee powder are added in some 3in1 brands. The roast and ground powder gives more punch and body to the instant coffee mix.
Whereas most non dairy creamer is only soluble in hot water, there are now non dairy creamers that are completely soluble in cold water. With the advancement of cold soluble non dairy creamers, we will see more 3in1 coffee mixes produced along the line of ice coffee blend.
This is likely to set a new trend in cold soluble 3in1 coffeemix. Think about Starbucks’ Frappuccino, and one has a good picture of what is to come.
