Ipoh White Coffee

Some time back, I shared a post about crunchy mung bean sprouts and super-smooth tofu that my hometown, Ipoh, is famous for.  I've forgotten  to mention about our  unique white coffee!

Lonely Planet named Ipoh as one of the top three best coffee spots in Asia and it's all because of our very famous white coffee!

Travel guide book publisher Lonely Planet collaborated with coffee-obsessed travel writers and journalists on a mission to discover the finest cafes, espresso bars, roasteries and plantations in more than 35 countries around the world. And Ipoh came out tops!
The taster's guide titled "Global Coffee Tour" describes our cup of joe as "hot, sweet and almost buttery in taste."

The book is packed with over 150 amazing coffee experiences in 37 countries, from its birthplace in East Africa, to modern-day Cuba, the United States, Australia and the UK.

A little history about our famous white coffee.

According to Insider,  the white coffee is NYC's hottest new java!

So delicious looking! I think this would be a decadent habit to get started but I would want to try it once time (at least). Good for your shop being picked as #1 in the world; that's a pretty good accomplishment!

I read about white coffee earlier this year for the first time -- I found out because I was writing a coffee haiku everyday for a while and you find out a lot about coffee that way. Your post reminded I'd love to try white coffee one day.

I'd try that for sure! It looks good!

Here in America our cup sizes are giant in comparison to other countries. I learned that when I went to a friend's house that is from Ethiopia.

I'm not familiar with white coffee but it looks absolutely delicious! If they have it in New York, hopefully, it will make its way to Toronto, soon. Thanks for the coffee education.

It sounds and looks delicious. I love a good cup of coffee but you can keep the inferior blends.
