HAINANESE COFFEE


How many of you that actually must have a cup of coffee every morning??? Before I got pregnant for my first baby, coffee is a must every morning. Anyhow, I love local coffee alot especially those coffee that is served in the Hainanese coffeeshop. My mom is a mixture of Hainanese and Hakka (H&H). Her maternal grandparents are Hainanese and they run a coffeeshop during those olden days. Now, they still have it in Taiping town but a very small one. So, whenever I go back, I will surely drop by to buy some coffee beans that is roasted by themselves. For your information, they don't sell it har. But how I can get it? Aiyah!!! Who am I? The great granddaughter of this Hainanese old man mah. Sure give face a little bit one. Hahaha....... This small stall is now run by my great grandparents daughter. Soon, it will pass over to her daughter too.
Even I have cut down alot on coffee but I still enjoy having a cup of coffee with toast bread and half boiled eggs for breakfast.

Yeah,... coffee is a MUST for me every morning now. I prefer this type of coffee than the luxury coffee (starbucks, coffee beans). So far Vietnam coffee is the best I ever had.

Why called it Hainanese coffee wor?
I need a cup of coffee every morning, otherwise, my 'engine' is not working.....

erinalaw said...

Annoymous - Hainanese Kaya taste is slightly different in it's texture. More smooth........

Rabbit - toast is my all time favourite also

Hor ny - Wan tan mee, tailok mee, kon loh mee, curry mee ..... and MAGGI mee? hahaha

New Kid on the blog - why they call it Hainanese coffee. Hmmm.... good question. The method they fry the beans are different and somehow they have their own secret. The smell is much better one. They also have a way to brew their coffee.
