3-in-1’s are popular in Malaysia where I grew up in. You can find 3-in-1’s in many grocery stores in Vancouver but you will find that most of them are made in Malaysia. I always suspect that 3-in-1’s are only popular in Singapore and Malaysia. So, do you find that in your country too?
Anyway, White Coffee (or better know as Ipoh White Coffee) is a popular brew in Malaysia. White coffee is produced by roasting the beans with only margarine and without any sugar, resulting in a roast that is less dark, hence the term “white” coffee.
We bought the “Ipoh White Coffee” 3-in-1’s from the Smart ‘N’ Save store in Lansdowne. Each pack (see below) costs $5.48 and contains 15 sachets in all.
3-in-1’s are called that because it contains all three popular ingredients in a typical Malaysian coffee brew — the coffee, the sugar and the milk (or creamer). They are processed in a powder form and each sachet makes one cup. It’s convenient and quick to make a cuppa.
Preparing it is simple … you just pour hot water into the cup, do a quick stir and you’re done.
The manufacturers had done a pretty good job despite this being instant coffee. Even the distinct aroma of white coffee is there. The coffee has a certain richness. If you have never tried 3-in-1’s before, I hope you give that a try and let me know what you think of it. If you can get hold of white coffee 3-in-1’s, better still …
