In House Coffee Roastery, Petaling Jaya
November 8, 2019
What happens when a Klang-born former pharmacist who practised his trade for a decade in Taipei returns to Malaysia to run a coffee bar? Kent Tan specialises in hand-brewed coffee with a healthier perspective, meticulously sifting through his beans both before and after roasting to discard defective ones, striving in his process to minimise the potential for caffeine headaches, palpitations and stomach upsets.
For the ideal In House experience, order the Premium Single Origin Set (RM31; suitable for two people to share), with current choices from Ethiopia and Guatemala. Kent will prepare the coffee at your table (pour over, siphon, or moka pot), patiently clarifying the rhyme and reason of the entire procedure, from timings to temperatures - the Guatemala Huehuetenango is a medium-roast to relish, each silky-smooth sip conveying the purity of a lovely, low-acidity earthiness.
This is a pleasant space for lingering, with cosy and charming corners - check out the wall lined with world clocks spanning a cavalcade of coffee source nations, from Papua New Guinea to Panama, in a shop-lot that also houses a printing shop.
