    Coffee powder as used by kopitiams

    I want to brew my own kopitiam coffee, complete with condensed milk and evaporated milk. Where do you suggest I buy such coffee powder? Which brands do you recommend? Thanks!

    In Ipoh I see a lot of shops (opposite Yik Foong) selling coffee beans. Here in KL/PJ...no such shops, at least I have not seen them. Odd, this.

    Actually, I haven't seen these products being sold outside of their "original" place ie. Kemaman & Ipoh.

    You can buy Aik Cheong coffee powder in bags. So convenient.

    They also have 3-in-one and 2-in-one. Don't buy these.

    When I go back hometown, I will join my Dad for breakfast at these traditional coffee shops.

    He told me the coffee shops had stopped grinding their own coffee powder due to time and labour. Aik Cheong is the standard coffee powder they use to prepare coffee..

    If you want to brew your own coffee, why not use fresh roasted coffee beans that are readily available in the markets.

    All you need is a coffee machine that come with a grinder at the top.

    A certain brand of express coffee cum grinder machine costs RM3,800 in KK Sabah but the same machine only cost equivalent of RM1,600 in Perth.

    I was at Mydin but could not find Aik Cheong coffee powder bags. Where can I get them? There are plenty of 3in1s and 2in1s which I agree, are crappy. I have never liked them.

    I like the traditionally prepared coffee with condensed/evaporated milk served at old school kopitiams the best.

    Not surprise... Again, it is demand and supply and compounded by the weak currency exchange.

    Grinding and brewing your own coffee from machine is not popular here, compares to western countries. The merchant needs to recover the stock-holding cost by imposing a huge mark-up on selling price as the sales is slow and small.

    I recently bought a pair of Columbia winter boots for my kid (400g insulation and negative 32 deg Celsius), the price tag is RM799. Similar winter boots (same brand, same specs) is sold less than USD100 in the country of origin.. !!
