When it comes to coffee, Malaysians sure indulge in our caffeine differently than people in most parts of the world. Malaysian coffee – or kopi, as it is affectionately known among locals – is often considered an acquired taste by foreigners. Coffee here is distinctly strong, robust and aromatic.

This is because the majority of the country’s coffee beans come from the Liberica coffee plant, although some places here do brew the widely consumed Arabica or Robusta variant too. The light to medium-bodied Liberica beans have bitter top-notes with a hint of floral and spice. Those with a more discerning palate might even pick up a slightly smoky taste.
