The franchise Coffea Coffee had arrived in KL, nested in the Bangsar neighbourhood located on the same row as La Bodega. It’s a coffee place in KL you should check out.
Last month I was one of the few bloggers invited over for a coffee session in Coffea Coffee on a school night, where we were introduced to Timothy, the founder of Coffea Coffee from Korea.Coffea Coffee is a multi-award winning establishment, specialising in Specialty Coffee from seven top producing farms around the globe including Brazil, Guatemala, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sumatra, Colombia, Costa Rica.
They are widely known for their own roasting and blending styles, featuring Maestro and Madonna as their superstars. Coffea Coffee is one of the official members of Cup Of Excellence™, an esteemed organisation that awards top coffees. Coffee connoisseurs worldwide with discerning palates who appreciate the complex flavours and aromatics found in a world-class coffee, buy and savour these winners.
The Madonna blend is sweet European style roasted blend that has a fruity aroma with a dash of acidity. It is a lighter version as compared to Maestro.
My first cup of coffee from Coffea Coffee is the Madonna, it contains fruity taste at first sip, however, although I’m not a coffee addict I didn’t like much about Madonna as the coffee aroma and taste is too light for me.
On the other hand, Maestro blend is strong full-bodied with dark chocolate undertones, it’s a classic American style roasted blend. After Madonna, the 2nd cup of coffee which I took that night was Maestro.
No regrets, it’s good and I love it. There’s a slight hint of chocolate taste in it which suits me best as I’m a Cafe Mocha fan.
This is Timothy, the founder of Coffea Coffee. Knowing that Timothy is a coffee art pro and had won some competitions, we asked if he would do a demo for us and so he did and a few other coffee art too.

Next, we were introduced to Drip brewing or also known as filtered coffee.
Drip brewing technique demo is an eye-opening to me. If you’re ordering a cup of coffee besides latte, don’t miss out the action done by the barista on the deck.
Drip brewing is a technique where hot water is poured through the roasted, ground coffee beans passing through a filter.
Coffea Coffee uses the Nectar drip set with clever filter and coffee filter, they are planning to sell the merchandise at their outlet soon so if you enjoy drip coffee you could get the drip set back home.
I don’t normally fancy black coffee, in this case, out of the 3 coffee I preferred Colombia Supremo El Lanca, RM 9. They are still a bit acidity for me but it’s not too bitter. I’m rather happy with latte still.
The Green Tea Latte (hot) RM 11, is something to look forward to if your not a coffee lover. For me, this tasted much better and less sweet as compared to Starbucks.
Take away is available.

Next, the cold drinks or ice-blended are known as Coolist in Coffea Coffee. On a hot sunny day, these would certainly cool you down.

Settings and seats.
Coffea Coffee is indeed a good coffee place for coffee lovers. If your not a huge fan of coffee, this is still a nice coffee place to chill with your friends.
