Top 10 Coffee Essence Available in Malaysia 2023

Coffee essence is a concentrated form of liquid coffee that can be found in small bottles at the baking section of a supermarket. Essence is another term for flavouring. However, an essence can have two different meanings. It could indicate that the coffee essence is an imitation extract or a highly concentrated form of pure extract. Therefore, make sure to check the labels for confirmation. Some coffee flavoring even comes in the form of emulco, a paste form of coffee flavouring which is a combination of coffee flavoring and colouring. 

You would have a bit of confusion in terms of coffee essence and extract. I have compiled several comparisons between a coffee essence and a coffee extract to clear that uncertainty.
