Definition

Nothing exists by that name in Indian spoken languages.

If you can't wait for filter coffee which takes a good half hour to come up, and you still want coffee in a hurry, I can at best offer you 'brucoffee' or 'nescoffee'.

Anywhere outside of South India, even getting brucoffee or nescoffee is a matter of luck and so, don't insist on any instant coffee.

Usage

It's common practice to use brand names as generic names in India. Rarely one says 'Instant coffee' for instant coffee.
