The White Coffee

Today, I would like to introduce you to White Coffee. Originating from Ipoh, this little marvel can be found in almost every coffee in the city. You can enjoy it hot or with ice. I must admit that with the heat there, it’s more pleasant to drink it cold. During my trip to Malaysia, it was the first time I tried iced coffee, and I really liked it.

As for the coffee, I have a soft spot for the national coffee chain OldTown White Coffee. It was created in Ipoh. I find their coffee really delicious and the atmosphere in their cafes very pleasant. You’ll not only find coffee there, but also tea and food.


Originating in the 19th century during the British colonial era, White Coffee from Ipoh was inspired by Chinese immigrants. Its thickness and aroma contributed to its fame. Due to specific roasting, brewing, and infusion techniques, it has a beige color. White Coffee is slowly roasted at low temperatures. OldTown’s White Coffee is made from a time honoured 3-bean blend recipe comprising of Robusta, Arabica and Liberica.

Often served with sweetened condensed milk, this coffee leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth, frothy, and rich, it strikes the perfect balance between coffee and milk.

So, I recommend you try this speciality 🙂
