Coffee Brand Feature: Lily’s by Conlins

Lily’s Coffee by Conlins Launch

For the love of coffee, our little family trooped to BGC recently for the launch of Lily’s Coffee by Conlins. If you happen to live in the east side of the metro, you’ll know exactly how traumatic traffic has become lately. Oh can we just fast forward to getting that train rail installed once and for all.

I digress. But for the record as bad as the traffic was, going to the launch was worth it. We went to not just witness the launch of Lily’s Coffee and the beautiful family story behind it but we also got our hand on some Coffee Art Latte and stenciling! It was fun!

Trying my hand on Coffee Stencil Art. It’s like Calligraphy on Coffee, really. Only a bit more challenging because timing is crucial. You have to get at it before the color cocoa disperses. 🙂

Eric Lim, the COO of Conlins Coffee Company and licensed coffee Q grader, is driven to create this same experience with every cup he brews and every product he creates: “For me, great coffee is an everyday indulgence, and it helps to make ordinary moments extraordinary.” 

Inspired by nostalgia, Lily’s by Conlins comes in three distinct flavours that brim with warmth and sweetness: The Royal Latte, Lily’s Luxury Cocoa and Capuccino.

Right on time for the Christmas season,  Conlins announces the launch of its newest line of premium instant coffee made from special micro-ground roasts – Lily’s by Conlins.

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.

Sir Eric Lim on Lily’s by Conlins, shared,  “Lily’s by Conlins is actually a tribute to my late mother. When I was a child, I would excitedly make breakfast and whip up a cup of coffee for her. Of course, it was just instant coffee. But the special, simple act of mixing the coffee with milk and sugar felt like such a grown up thing. Until today, I remember those moments with fondness. Coffee became an opportunity for us to bond.”

Listening through Sir Eric’s story, it was difficult to not tear up as the voice of the son he will always be echoes deep from within, even as he clicked through pictures of him with his mom. Encouraging us, his tempo students, to take as much photos as we can with loved ones.
