Best Coffee In The World

Yes! Malaysia is emerging up the ranks as the top country with the most variety of aromatic coffee. Our white coffee beans is a new phenomenon that has taken many caffeine addicts by storm for its unique taste, easy preparations and very affordable price! Why pay a bomb price to sip the dung droppings of several animals? The trend is always changing globally with South Korea churning out innovative cuppa beverages always, as seen on the TV documentaries.
When we google for the premium coffee ranks, you might see different subjective results of the countries but our country is no where to be seen. Without doubt, I could smell this from my years of personal observation on seeing the market share that our country is enjoying each year.

A few Winters ago, we followed a tour group to ski in South Korea and our smart local tour guide seized the opportunity to check in 30 big cartons of local Coffee Sachets using our individual baggage weight allowance. I was shocked to learn that her associates in Seoul loved our cheap priced Ali-Cafe coffee.

Nowadays when you enter the hypermarkets, you should try to observe the foreigners with trolleys! They were often filled with our 3-in-1 coffee sachets to the maximum. They could buy mixed brands totaling over 50 to 100 packets to bring home to their country. Most of the buyers are from mainland China! They simple love the aroma and convenience of 3-in-1 sachets for quickie drinks with just hot water.




This is my Coffee Art Photo using my antique Qing Dynasty's 
porcelain tea cup and saucer. Do you like it?


My former politician BOSS who passed away last year, had roped me in to handle some errands of their coffee & green tea manufacturing business which was meant solely for export to China. He shared with me about the culture and drinking habits of the mainlanders which totaled 1.4 billion promptly makes it a big global market share. I was running the errands, tasting, productions and logistic until his sudden death on 1st May 2014. Everything came to a halt like a Kung Fu Master who brought his trade secrets and skills along in his departure.



You might like my idea to always present our 
White Coffee as ideal gifts for foreigners!
I have given them to Americans, Japanese and Thai friends, 
who loved them beyond words.

    1. I always have 3-4 brands at home and need to rotate them otherwise bluek.
      We take things for granted always when it's our own home grown products like white coffee and clothes from SODA which often made headlines overseas!

  3. huh?? best coffee in the world?? errr, Thambee tarak tau coffee lah, to him all coffee is the same because he is not a coffee fans at all.. but the true thing is that, Thambee is not one who would fork out 10 over 20 ringgit to get a cup of coffee at all.. even kopitiam selling kopi-peng at RM2 also he is not interested dei~~ :p

    1. Adoi! This SK Thambee is so fussy and must only drink his warm goat milk! The world is sipping coffee and tea at the courts and black tie dinners while you reject them all. What is wrong with your intestines dei? Plenty of ulat-ulat crawling inside lah. Muahahaha

  4. I don't know if Malaysia is emerging as a world class coffee exporter but definitely the "coffee culture" is rooted and more and more people are appreciating the art of drinking coffee.. look at cafes mushrooming in the country, people are after a more classy lifestyle nowadays, especially the younger generations.. students drinking ice-blended coffee from coffee chains while Uncle SK is hunting for those RM1-for-1-can vending machines nia~~

    1. Oh yes, I am sure about my facts but didn;t elaborate meeting up businessmen who all try to insert their foot inside the mainland but failed miserably. Even that Rose Mama's franchise OT White Coffee got thrown out! Most of them only could arrive the shores of Aberdeen and trickled into Shenzhen only. Get it??

  5. fuyoh Anay shot a photo for the post purposely!! antique table with that classic porcelain tea cup and saucer from Qing Dynasty!! dei~~ though Thambee though they are more suitable for tea, and to go together with a scone served with clotted cream and strawberry preserves, you hold the cup with your thumb and index finger, and your little finger tilted up.. classic!!!

  6. wah your tour guide really smart lah.. he utilized the remaining baggage allowance of the team for his own business!! so you were given 30kg each and he told you that you only have 25kg?? eih, can load in 30 big cartons of the 3-in-1 coffee sachets dei, he will be making money if he sells them in Korea!! Thambee didn't know Korean also like our 3-in-1 sachets but for sure the mainlander Chinese I have heard of.. and agree!! it's a smart choice to buy them as souvenirs for foreigner friends dei..

    1. Yes I was amazed that the Koreans have long appreciated our Ali Cafe while I had yet to try them After my trip, I headed to try it myself. One thing led to another and I got roped in by my boss. Who would like to export coffee???? Call me!!!

  7. Fuiyoh, best coffee in the world wei.. Err, I don't drink coffee.. I only drink Milo & Horlicks in my life.. Maybe because mum didn't allow us to drink coffee when we were young.. I tried drinking coffee a few times, couldn't take it, heart beating fast, didn't like the feeling, so I stopped.. There was one time I craved for coffee, so I ordered Neslo (coffee+Milo), also cannot leh, heart beating fast.. Wah, smart tour guide, borong banyak-banyak and re-sell in Korea.. Call me jakun, Nescafe 3-in-1, I heard before la (who doesn't).. Then I heard about Ali Cafe.. The latest one is Oldtown white coffee.. Wait, I also hear that Ah Niu (???) coffee mix.. Hehe..

    1. I also love to drink any hot beverages like Milo and Horlicks! So calming and nice drinks. I drank more coffees when all the world's scientists confirmed that it contains high anti-oxidants that prevent cancer. I remember their distorted reports during the 70s and 80s that coffee was bad for health! What a big twisted news.

      Muahahaha.... You got mixed up. They used Ah Niu's face to endorse that popular "Ah Huat White Coffee" brand at the start of their launch. Now no more as the Ah Huat's old man cartoon is a celebrity himself.

      I agree that the tour guide was smart and cunning just like most of all the tour guides who find side incomes. This world is a rat race and dog eat dogs world where we need to play smart. There is money to be made everywhere for us!

    1. I went to Singapore recently and took a good look at the white coffees in the supermarket shelves! All were imported ones! You should make your own brand and sell there!

  10. I tried to reduce drinking 3-in-1 coffee, slowing change to plain coffee powder. Have you tried Tenom coffee before, it is also local grown coffee in North Borneo,

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I definitely prefer our traditional plain coffee powder but I cannot brew and filter them in office. So this 3-in-1 comes very handy.

    2. Oh, I have never tried this Tenom coffee from Borneo!
      Who will send to me??

  13. Oh yes, I too, always bring our 3-in-1 white coffee as souvenir when I went to the US and Japan for work. Those jepun kia and angmohs absolutely loved it! Forget other Malaysian souvenirs, every time they come, they will be sure to hit the supermarkets to sapu all those white coffees home!

    1. Oh well, I have something coming up about antique collections. When I was at my work table, I saw so much old files of the halted jobs of my late boss. It is big business for anyone who can penetrate their market with our coffee. Many big timers have failed but I kept quiet.

  16. I am not sure whether its the best coffee in the world or not, but I took almost 10 packets of Old Town coffee over to Korea as soveniers! 3-in-1 reserve only for weekend. Lovely cup set there. Have a wonderful weekend

    1. So I am not new on this idea but you and others have done similarly to give our coffee as gifts! The Koreans love them esp during the cold weather. You can see that many restaurants offer free self-service coffee for diners after their meals.

      Have a wonderful weekend too.

  24. I also curious why thouse dung droppings can be so expensive. I tried it once but not as good as I thought. Probably cause I'm not a true coffee lover.

    Not just from Mainland China, last week when I went supermarket, I saw a group of Korean bought a big plastic bag of coffee 3-in-1. Seriously, I never thought they love our coffee so much until you discussed it here. It's gives me an idea what to give to them next time. =)

    1. Yes I agree that the droppings are not a healthy thing yet people paid a bomb for it. My droppings is fresh and free, anyone??...... Wakakakaka
