It’s been some time ago since we last attended coffee appreciation class at Università delCaffè della Malesia (UDC). And upon hearing another session gonna be carried out at CAFFÉ CREAMA at Plaza Mont Kiara, we jumped on the invitation call and headed to the café albeit on an early morning over the weekend. After all, it fits the punch line, doesn’t it? (=For that day, early risers like us were introduced to several specialty blends along with some info sharing of the respective beans origin by
is a real passionate coffee lover, often travels to Italy to keep abreast of the region latest tech-savvy; Polaris of Coffee Machine- La Marzocco. Being in the coffee roasting scene himself, he’s glad to see the evolving interest on gourmet coffee among the community nowadays, catapulted from our childhood brand of US big brands to coffee aficionado of third wave boutique coffees. Indeed an interesting coffee journey right? Hence, Caffé Crema was borned and cultivated into a nice, comfortable enclave that easily spurs anyone into merry mood by its vinyl disc melodious tunes playing at the background upon stepping in. The ambiance is further accentuated aesthetically with the redesigned work of the junkyard woods that turns out surprisingly really beautiful such as the cable drum that is made into a lounge-styled table for the skyjuice. In a nutshell, everything is kept to be simple and echt- epitome of a real coffee-centric establishment. Signature Blend
New Guinea, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and Indonesia
smooth chocolate, raisins, dried figs, caramel and overtones of tangerine. The profile is smoother due to Ethiopian, floral and fruitiness
Cappuccino Macchiato The second blend happens to my personal preference, Black Owl Blend.
Brazil and Columbia
delightful aroma of chocolate and honey. Sweet acidity, malty characteristics, deep balance and bold syrupy mouth feel. This 2 region blend boast a more nutty and chocolaty aftertaste Each cup of Joe served here are measured precisely for consistency in sizes, where each grinded coffee beans would be first weighted to that desired amount before start brewing you espresso shot. Once you have got these items in orderly checked; Skill + Grinder + Coffee Machine + Milk, you’re off to a good start! Coffee drinking is a serious affair here, where it is encouraged to slowly enjoy and sip you coffee as it is, without any soya milk (as that kills the coffee aroma), skimmed milk or syrup. Of course, thorough appreciation of black coffee is not achieved overnight, so am still holding on to my milk-based latte if not cold drip at times (= Some 3D Kitty art for your latte perhaps? It's all imported from Japan And pairing it with sandwich (whether toasted or original), is a good idea too. The best time recommended to have coffee is between 0930 to 1130 in the morning for that’s the prime time for the coffee to help boosts up energy level, or 1330 to 1800 later of the day. However, it’s still very much depends on individual. Not advised to have it at night as caffeine needs up to 8 hours for it to digest properly, unless you’re prepared to guard throughout the night, haha….. Do you know that Nordic countries like Norway, Finland and Iceland score one of the highest coffee drinkers in the world? Voila! ^^ Currently the most expensive coffee is crowned by Black Ivory which costs up to $50 for a cup, or two, if you’re lucky enough, due to its scarcity.
With passion, you’ll find good quality coffee that leads to your very own specialty coffee which eventually creates a memorable and personalized coffee experience.
