    Hi, can i know where can i get vanilla,caramel and etc syrup in Selangor. Been to all the major supermarket. But non of them have it.

  2. Irving

    Lawrence, You can get Torani syrups from San Francisco coffee. You can also get Monin syrups from Village grocers in Bangsar Village. Dankoff also sell some syrups, just google them.

  3. lawrence

    Hi Irving,

    Thx for the advise. Yes indeed i got myself a Torani syrup but later to find out they don’t sell the pump. So i went to a shop in the curve i guess it’s ETC. Got myself another bottle of monin together with it’s pump. Do you have any idea where can i get the torani pump?

  4. Jason

    Would like to buy some roasted coffee bean ??? Any recommendation for me??? Please reply me in email. Thanks

  5. Amy

    Hi KF,

    Recently bought a basic espresso machine (no grinder). I am looking high and low for Illy coffee powder, any idea if I can get this in Malaysia (at all)?

    Appreciate it. Thanks.

  6. Wee Chuan

    Hi Amy,

    Illy coffee in ground form is not fresh at all. This applies to any coffee in this form though. You can get major Italian brands in Cold Storage.

    Get a good quality grinder & fresh coffee beans (more important) instead.

    And by the way, what espresso machine you hav?

  7. Amy

    Thanks for the tip WC. Am really new to this.

    Got a basic KRUP, not wanting to invest too much at this stage considering….that I’m such a green horn….or rather green bean. =)

    Looks like should have gotten a grinder as well….hmmm….

  8. Ethan

    Hi Amy , Im using the Krups as well at the moment.Same thought not buying a good one yet.You can get Illy canned coffee in Mercato supermarket in Pavillion as well

  9. MW Liu

    Hi Amy,

    Illy sold in mall etc is very expensive. If you have a few people to share, you can buy a 3 kg bin from the wholesaler at Bandar Tun Razak, KL. Tel :03-91736028. Much cheaper.

  26. jingz

    Hi KF,

    I’m looking for a Bialetti Brikka pot, i wonder if it is sold in Malaysia? Have you any idea of it? It is quite rare down here in Aussie so i thought i could try my luck when i’m back to kl for a break.


  27. Dennis

    Hi jingz,
    You can get it from Subang Parade or Metrojaya in Mid Valley.
    Both stores carry Brikka and Bialetti products.
    Bad news is in Malaysia you can’t buy any of these Bialetti spare parts. I bough mine from Algerian Coffee Online Stores, Slightly more expensive due to the shipping cost to Malaysia.
    Hope this is helpful.

    Hi all,
    Can anyone advise what so unique of Coffee Luwak ie taste /aroma/??……A group of us will be visiting Indonesia end of this month to visit the local plantation and the whole process…. I am told that Johor is producing and selling Rm15/cup of Coffee Luwak and SIN$10.50/cup in Singapore!! Anyone try that before and advise why is so well-known and pupolar.

    Thank you

  64. kfchan Post author

    Certain things are well known and popular because of hype and marketing.
    Let us also consider why certain things are so expensive. Generally, there are 2 reasons why things are expensive.
    1. The thing is of GOOD quality and value
    2. The thing is RARE.

    Based on my limited experience, Kopi Luwak is not particularly great. Common experience is that they are not very bitter. Can be smooth too.

    If they are properly roasted and brewed, can be a decent cup of coffee.

    I believe most people when they were offered kopi luwak (and were not told that they are drinking kopi luwak), most would not think they are good enough to cost you more than RM30 per cup.

    To me, they are over-priced and over-hype.

  65. Marcus Lum

    Hi KF Chan,
    Thanks for sharing your view. Indeed there are rare as it depends cherries season and the complicated and tedious process…Suprisingly, it seem the demand in Europe, US and Japan have increased tremendously and the selling price /lbs is ridiculous….Unfortunately M’sia does not recognise as Halal product despite it is certified by Indonesia govt, otherwise more coffee drinkers can try it and share the views…
    By the way, could you please furnish me more info about training provided in M’sia and consultation fees with the cost breakdown…
    Thanks in advance
