Coffee plays an important role in shaping and changing the various cultures of drinking hot beverages around the world. Better known in Malaysia, coffee is a beverage that was first introduced during the opening of the stores of Kopitiam (‘kopi’ is derived from the Malay and ‘tiam’ means stores in Hokkien dialect) began in the British colonial era. Unlike other countries that use the brewing method, coffee in Malaysia is roasted with butter and sugar before being added to boiling water through a cloth filter.
However, with plenty of coffeehouses opening up around the world as well as in Malaysia, we no longer just enjoy our typical ‘kopi’ since we were introduced to lattes, espressos, macchiatos and so on.
Nespresso has recently launched its lineup of the new World Explorations range with three types of renewed existing Lungo coffee alongside three new added flavours.
