RL by Coffeery, Bukit Bintang

October 17, 2021

If coffee is your Real Love, this under-the-radar cafe in the city centre could be your next hideout whenever the caffeine cravings strike.

White-collar workers walking for lunch in Raja Chulan might have already spotted the hashtag #rlbycoffeery lit up on a street-level window of the Wisma New Asia office building, beckoning them into this small, cosy space for cappuccinos and cakes.

RL by Coffeery's black-and-red Italian-made Sanremo Café Racer is one of the sleekest espresso machines in KL's CBD, with a five-boiler system that promises complete temperature stability while using 50% less energy than its traditional peers. Check out the beautiful controls that show everything from temperature to steam pressure and incoming water pressure.

The result is consistency and precision to make the best of RL's Sumatra Mandheling single-origin beans, specifically roasted by a micro-roaster for RL and its sister cafe, Taman Melawati's Playground Coffeery. The flat white (RM11) is fabulous - vibrant, smooth and full-bodied. Cold brews are also available if you want to bring a bottle back home or to the workplace.

Desserts are available to accompany the coffee. The selection rotates, so you might find caneles and lemon meringue pie, as well as cakes in favourite flavours like the Victoria sponge, lemon blueberry, Earl Grey salted caramel, chocolate ganache, and salted caramel chocolate with cookies.
