Coffee @ Cawanmas Cafetiam in Johor Jaya, Johor Bahru

I am not a fan of those ubiquitous, trendy coffee chains. But when I heard that Cawanmas was first a coffee roaster from Muar before it branched into the café business, I decided to give their Malaysian style roast a try.

I ordered a “big” kopi C kosong (Malaysia/Singapore term for coffee with condensed milk, without sugar). This huge mug of coffee costs RM2.50.

(Their food and beverage menu runs into several pages but I did not try any. Guess I am allergic to coffee chain food ;P )

Serving coffee in a plain looking mug like this is not very stylish at all. It didn’t quite match the rustic ambiance of the well thought out décor.

Never mind the presentation, this coffee has got substance. It has a robust aroma, is thick, bitter, full bodied and loaded with caffeine. I like the “kau” (thick in Hokkien) feel of the coffee and the kick I get from the caffeine.

I love the coffee at Cawanmas. Add to this, the nice clean environment, pleasant staff, old time kopitiam ambiance, latest newspapers and magazines for browsing, competitive pricing, and free wifi – makes Cawanmas one of my favourite hangout places for tête à tête over an authentic cuppa of Malaysian roast.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
