Get Your Caffeine Fix with Maxim Coffee in Singapore

If you've seen a lot of Korean dramas, you might have recognised the familiar instant coffee packaging from the brand Maxim, which has been one of the most popular Korean coffee brands in South Korea and around the world.

Maxim Korea - Paving the Way for Korean Instant Coffee

There's a long history of coffee drinking culture in South Korea. This can be traced back to the time when coffee shops called Dabangs emerged in 1927, particularly in and around Myeongdong, Seoul.

Inside Debangs locals could enjoy eating savoury cakes with western cutlery, such as knives and forks, and drink coffee from cups, instead of the traditional soup bowls. A culinary revolution had begun.

Not long after the Debangs opened, cafes gained traction around 1970. Exclusive coffee shops began opening around Seoul, which catered for businessmen, professionals, and students. With the surge in cafes and coffee, instant coffee then hit the local scene in 1976!

Dongsuh Foods was the first company to introduce instant coffee to the country by selling instant coffee mix packs in 1976, which are now known as Maxim coffee sticks. Coffee was no longer exclusive to just those who patronised coffee shops. Instead, coffee could since then be drunk in the homes and offices of ordinary citizens.

By the end of 1990, South Korea had become the largest consumer of instant coffee in the world. Not only was it trendy, but it was cheap, had a long shelf life, and was very convenient.

Maxim Mocha Gold Coffee Mix

Maxim’s Mocha Gold line comes in 3 different versions - Light, Mild and Simple Latte. Out of these 3, the mild version is the most popular one in Korea.

Maxim Mocha Gold Mild - It isn’t overpoweringly bitter, so it’s pleasant to everyone's taste due to its nice balance of sugar, coffee and cream.

Maxim Mocha Gold Light - It is similar to the Mild version, but its sugar content is reduced by 25%, which is 0.2g. The Light version is suitable for those who are trying to cut down on sugar.

Maxim Mocha Gold Simple Latte - It is creamier than the Mild and Light versions, and has no added sugar. Highly recommended to those who love milk coffee without sugar.

Maxim Original Instant Coffee Mix

Maxim Original is more bitter than the Gold line and is suitable for those who prefer stronger coffee.

The difference between the Original and the Gold line is the quality of the coffee beans used – the Gold line is made with higher quality coffee beans and is more expensive than the Original.

Maxim Mocha White Gold Coffee

Maxim White Gold is a mix that will capture the hearts of those who prefer milk. It contains a prima containing non-fat milk, and the deep taste and rich aroma of coffee are still alive.

Maxim Decaffeinated Coffee

If you're looking to cut down on caffeine, this decaffeinated coffee is an ideal choice for your breakfast. It contains 100% frozen dry coffee with caffeine removed through the Swiss water process, as well as latte cream that makes the coffee richer and smoother. Each stick also contains 58 mg of polyphenol, which is known for its ability to inhibit the activity of free radicals.

Maxim Arabica Coffee Mix

Maxim Arabica 100 coffee mix is made with the clean and fresh flavour of Arabica beans. The original flavour of the beans is alive after the roasting process, which features the characteristics of the beans in each mountain region. As soon as roasted beans are shredded, they are made with the Refined Aroma Process (RAP) method of scent extraction, which features deep, rich flavours and scents. You can easily make a cup of hot or iced Americano with this Maxim Arabica mix.

Maxim Ice Coffee Mix

Only the finest arabica beans grown on highlands over 1,000 meters above sea level were used to capture the natural flavour of the coffee. At the same time, beans melt well in cold water, making it perfect for drinking with iced coffee. The Maxim Ice Coffee Mix is highly recommended to those who like cold coffee regardless of the season. Start a pleasant day with a cup of sweet iced coffee.

How many sachets are there in a box of Maxim Coffee?

Each box of Maxim Instant Coffee Mix contains 20, 50, 100, 180, 210, 230 or 400 sticks, depending on which size you're going for. Each stick contains 50 calories. There are 1.5 grams of total fat, 10 milligrams of sodium, 9 grams of carbs, less than 1 gram of dietary fibre, 6 grams of total sugars and no protein in each serving.

How to store and prepare Maxim instant coffee?

This instant coffee is very easy to store and has a shelf life of over one year. To prepare this coffee, simply pour one packet into 100 to 120ml of hot water based on your personal preference. If you want a larger cup of coffee or a stronger flavour, consider adding two packets to your water.

If you're feeling fancy, you can add marshmallows on top of the hot coffee and drizzle a little chocolate syrup.

Other Fun Maxim Instant Coffee Recipes

Affogato

Dissolve the coffee mix in a small amount of hot water then add it to your cup of vanilla ice cream. You can add chocolate chips or nuts as you prefer and it's ready to serve!

Freeze Pops

Add water to your coffee mix in a cup before pouring it back into the stick. Repeat these steps based on the number of freeze pops you'd like. Freeze them overnight and they are ready to serve the next day!

Dalgona Coffee

Dissolve the coffee mix in two tablespoons of hot water. While the Maxim instant coffee mix already contains sugar, you can add one extra teaspoon of sugar to increase the fluffiness. Whip this mix up with an electrical mixer or a whisk until it becomes frothy. Set the frothy blend aside.

Fill a glass with ice cubes and fresh milk up to 3 quarters, and then scoop the frothy mix out and lay it on top of the milk. It's one of the best summer drinks that you can make to impress yourself and your loved ones!

How do you control sugar in Maxim coffee?

When you cut one side of the stick (where there is a sign that says "EASY CUT" in English) and pour it into your cup, just hold the other side of the stick gently with your finger. There is a sign there that says "sugar control" in Korean. Most of the sugar in the stick is at the bottom, so you can control it that way.

What are the benefits of Maxim Instant Coffee?

Aside from the fact they are easy to prepare and convenient to carry around with you, Maxim instant coffee comes with several health benefits. Maxim instant coffee contains more antioxidants than filtered coffee and has less caffeine.

A standard cup of Maxim contains around 30 to 90mg of caffeine as compared to a freshly brewed coffee with 70 to 140mg of caffeine. Besides, it gives a boost to your metabolism to burn unwanted fats in your body, provided that there's not much sugar in it.
