Best Coffees in Ipoh

Written by Updated ago

While the widely praised caffeine is considered a drug, many coffee lovers will beg to differ, claiming coffee itself is the drug. Biologically, our bodies were invented to dislike bitterness and thus, we should loathe coffee naturally. However, science states that we accept the bitterness of coffee through psychology because of the effectiveness and benefits of caffeine. Never thought you hear the science-y part of the beverage? Well, now you're updated and in the know. Having said that and whatever it is, WE LOVE COFFEE and these spots serves some of the best recommended coffee to satisfy that addiction in Ipoh!

Rankings of all participants as visible on our listings are solely voted by you, our beloved readers. With that said, we would encourage you to please vote for your preferred participants in order to ensure their rightful positions ranking-wise on our portal. Thank you!

    Coffee Tag uses Java Arabica beans for their main brew. The menu is limited but you know what they say: it's better to focus on a few and make those great. Closed at mid-week, Wednesdays are the only time you can't fulfil your caffeine needs here. Some claim that the roast of the beans used are on the lighter side so if you're a true caffeine addict, double shot that cuppa!

    Set of the day comes with a cuppa.

    Things to expect

    Comfortable ambience.

    Best with

    Naughty (Nutella coffee).

    Often patronized for their lustering serving of curry mee, a simmering cup of coffee is also often sought after here. The black coffee especially gives out a smoky and structured taste, which often links to the olden days where thick and rich coffee were the daily bread for many. So, curry mee and coffee? 

    Tips

    Ipoh Hor Fun is also great for non-spicy options.

    Things to expect

    Local breakfast favourites such as toasts and kaya!

    Best with

    Curry Mee.

    This quirky little café sure does seem like a good place to have coffee, thus the compulsory selection of coffee from the more robust Americano to a more syrup based Vanilla Latte for those docile palates. They also feature the staple of Ipoh, their very own version of White Coffee, artisan style.

    Ipoh’s white coffee often, if not always goes hand in hand with its famed heritage buildings. It just gives you an experience that you won’t find elsewhere.
