Best Coffees in KL

Written by Updated ago

The coffee culture has been quite a hit ever since it got to Malaysia. Previously, it was common to merely have a cup of Kopi O without wondering where the beans might have originated from. Now, it's an entirely different story and a whole new culinary experience. The origin of the beans, the type of beans, the process in roasting the bean, the machine used to extract the processed bean, and of course, the final outcome. Each stage has its own set of variables that can alter the taste and aroma of said coffee. Now, if you don't know where to start, then perhaps this list of the best coffees in KL might just help you out.

    AntipodeanNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Antipodean café has always been well-known for its Australian-style big breakfast – served with delicious bacon, sautéed mushrooms, scramble eggs, baked beans and toasts. Having said that, the coffee itself wasn’t too bad either. In fact, the term “With great breakfast comes great coffee” can be applied here. Coffee served was aromatic, smooth but a little mild. Best of all, the pricing was relatively reasonable with a cup of hot latte going for RM9.
    Tips

    Try to go after the breakfast rush hours, probably around 11-12 when it’s nearing brunch to avoid long queues.

    Things to expect

    Noise due to high traffic and somewhat slow serving.

    Best with

    Big Breakfast and espresso.

    Price

    RM10.00 to RM20.00

    Unlike most of the cafes mentioned here, Chawan takes on a different approach towards coffee and its customers. Instead of serving fancy, machine-brewed coffee, Chawan offers a more traditional-styled approach. Using greenish-patterned-cups, most recognizable and influential during the 80s and 90s coffee shops as an alternative towards contemporary latte, espresso or cappuccino cups; Chawan strives to bring diners through an nostalgic experience with its food and of course, coffee
    Tips

    Not your typical café, food is recommended.

    Things to expect

    Long queue during lunch hours.

    Best with

    Nasi Lemak and The Tarik.

    Pulp By Papa PalhetaPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    Located on a street populated by NSTP (New Straits Times Press) and China Press buildings in the nearby area, Pulp café is considered a hidden gem within the Bangsar location. In case you are wondering about the industrial-like setup in this café, it used to be an old printing company. At the front entrance, there’s a white-coloured tagline against the glass wall that reads “A City That Deserves Great Coffee”. True to their promise, their coffee range is top notch. But most of all, they also offer creative types of coffee such as Suke Quto (a medium-bodied coffee which has an aromatic hint of citrus and candy-like sweetness) and Nuts + Bolts (a fruity and nutty-rich coffee). Then there’s Cold Brew (love the cough syrup-like bottle), a refreshing coffee best consumed with ice and also an ideal drink to counter against the frequently hot weather in KL!
