Coffee is one of the most versatile beverages in the world. There are more than hundreds of ways for people to enjoy this drink. Among all types of coffees, white coffee is one of the famous in Malaysia.
But this doesn’t mean the coffee itself is white. The name is derived from the colour of the coffee after having condensed milk mixed into the drink.
In Western countries, the term ‘white coffee’ often refers to black coffee with milk added in. But in Malaysia, white coffee refers to the process in which the coffee bean was produced. The method of preparing these coffee beans differs from regular coffee.
Traditionally, black coffee beans are produced by roasting the beans with margarine, sugar, and wheat. In contrast, white coffee beans only use margarine and omit the sugar. This results in a less roasted coffee bean.
Originating from Old Town Ipoh, Perak, this drink has become a sensation among local coffee drinkers. It is available as an instant coffee and is widely available throughout Malaysia.
This coffee drink has a slightly caramelised flavour to it and has a fragrant, aromatic taste to boot! Although foreigners may find the drink somewhat unorthodox, Malaysians have grown accustomed to the taste and have since fallen in love.
Making this drink is quick and easy and delicious to drink. So, head over to your kitchen and give it a shot!
