I have been looking forward to visit Café crema at Plaza Mont Kiara since they opened last year. And I finally did my first visit 3 weeks ago on a raining and chilling evening.
We got to know more about coffee and the different types of coffee from the man behind Café Crema that evening. When Elvin first learned to love coffee, he frequented a popular chain. “I have to be thankful for the commercialization of coffee chains in Malaysia,” he says. “That’s where my education began and I eventually went on to explore the entire coffee culture and how subjective this beverage is in the minds of drinkers. It’s very polarising how one can enjoy a certain brew while another individual may hate it.” He has since travelled extensively to discover only that the perfect brew is all in our taste buds and mind.
Years later, the founder of Caffe Crema is still discovering that there’s much more to be absorbed and imbibed. In particular, filter coffee that is fast making a comeback – despite it being viewed with disdain by British drinkers as unsophisticated. “Filter coffee has more caffeine,” he explains.
We have also seen how the coffee beans were grind; how to prepare the water with correct temperature, and how to filter our coffee. We also found out some interesting facts for example that ratios are the fundamentals of making a good cup of coffee, and coffee taste different on how you grind the beans.
There are so many things to learn in how to appreciate a good cup of coffee. Thank you Caffe Crema for taking the intimate time to teach us on this, and we would definitely look forward to more coffee appreciation sessions like this.
Caffe Crema is located at E-01-02, Block E, Plaza Mont Kiara, 2 Jalan Kiara, 50480 Kuala Lumpur
