Aik Cheong Coffee - IT’S More Than Just Cup, Granola & Black Drip Series Coffee


An evergreen name in Malaysia, Aik Cheong has been around since 1955. Yes, that’s 65 years in Malaysia. I’ve literally grown up knowing of this coffee brand, especially their instant beverage product ranges, from black coffee, white coffee, to hot chocolate and more. It really intrigued me then when I was introduced recently to their latest innovations, some of which are totally different from their usual range of coffee. Read on below.

Aik Cheong Coffee has always had the concept of “Enjoying the great taste of coffee at home” and with their strong initiatives in product innovation and development, they have successfully rolled out the new trend of ‘Hot Cup’ instant beverage which is called “IT’S more than just” products since June, last year (2019).

In fact, I like the IT’S series so much, I have prepared a short vid below on how easy it is to prepare my Chocolate with marshmallows inside. Watch it! 


The one cup serving concept is just too convenient, bringing forth the instant 1-2-3 steps concept into a cup. I really like the end product as well. Besides being really attractive, we could actually adjust the sugar level and toppings that go into each cup.

IT’S Granola Series


With a tagline that goes “Time to Grind for a Better Life”, you know you’re going to have some really healthy stuff in the form of the IT’S Granola Series. Being high in fibre, the granolas are a good source of protein, made from all natural ingredients. I do like the mix berries. Good stuff from Aik Cheong. 

The granolas here is most useful when paired with yogurt or honey. Mix up your own plate of goodness with IT'S Granola Series. Personally I like to enjoy it as a snack on its own as the crunchy toppings inside is super yummy! It's all natural hence no artificial flavours and no added refined sugar can be found inside. 


Yummy, healthy granolas

Out of the many flavours, I went for the Guatemala Huehuetenago Drip series coffee. Why? I initially saw the Mild + Present printing on the packaging. Seriously bold, but yet pleasantly mild with a sweet orange finish that will subtly invade your palette with bursting surprise! Exceptional coffee served as a great delightful balance of medium roast and citrusy aftertaste.
