    Try Tesco or Aeon.

    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.
    My niece gave my wife a coffee machine. It look expensive. If she had offered to give it to me I would have said no thank you.

    It was never put to use. We are going pass it on.

    Ipoh White Coffee is in Melbourne. A matter of time before it makes it way to Perth. Haven't seen Toast Box in Melbourne.

    Yes, seen plenty of Toast Box outlets in KL and PJ. They seem to be exploding in Malaysia! I haven't walked into one so far.

    You probably are referring to the Old Town Kopitiam at QV on Swanston Street next to the Library. It no longer exist and is replaced by Paparich.
    I understand that it is only copying the name and did not conform to the standards of the same kopitiam chain in Malaysia.

    I understand that there is one new Old Town White Coffee now in Elizabeth Street in the same CBD area - not sure if it was the same one from QV with a name change? Haha, they have very bad food reviews.

    I was at Mekong on Swanston Street for beef noodles. Big portions. Delicious. Value for money. Apparently even President Bill Clinton ate there! While on the way there, I remember seeing Oldtown White Coffee on Elizabeth Street but I couldn't be bothered to go in. When I crave for some Oldtown White Coffee, I go to the one near my house!

    Absolutely correct. It is the best place for pho and Vietnamese food. No need to ask for drinks because they have thermos flasks of hot tea all the time on the table - free. Very popular and packed full of customers all the time

    At most restaurants in Melbourne, there are free glass bottles of water for all. Take as many as you wish. There is no need to order drinks if you so desire. Our greedy restaurant owners/hawkers should learn from them.

    Yes correct. By the way, their table water are just direct from the kitchen tap. Not necessarily filtered and definitely not boiled water as here. Water is safe to drink off the tap (at least in Melbourne)

    OK, apologies to all for the diversion from coffee
