What’s not to like about good coffee? Especially when it’s also FREE! If you’ve been following me, you’ll know how much I love coffee and always craving for it. Somehow, a cup of coffee can make me feel happy and relaxed.
“Coffee is the common man’s gold and like gold, it brings to every man the feeling of luxury and nobility” – Poet Sheikh Ansari Djezeri Hanball Abd-al Kadir
IJM Land Good Coffee Day 2.0
A special thanks to IJM Land for organizing Good Coffee Day 2.0 at ICE Gallery in Pantai Sentral Park, an early Christmas celebration for us all ♥♥♥ Coffex Coffee was giving out their coffee of the day to public. Good coffee, no doubt! I definitely want a cup as well! Smooth, velvety 100% Arabica with notes of toffee sweetness and acidity of green apples! Coffex Coffee is one of the roasters in Klang Valley, so remember to check out their roasted coffee. Drinking coffee requires a vast knowledge too. Look at all the details on the packaging. Every single detail is important! It’s not easy to determine what is good coffee especially if you’re new to this. Luckily, Daniel Liew, the founder of the Barista Guild of Asia is here to the rescue. Daniel Liew is one of the few who is a globally certified trainer and certified with the prestigious Authorized Specialty Coffee Association of Europe. During this Coffee Workshop, I learned so much from him. The most interesting part was the personalized guidance from the coffee expert himself about how to correctly utilize manual brewing equipment. He also constantly gives us tips and tricks on how to brew the perfect coffee. For example, you have to rinse your paper coffee filter before using it or the taste of paper will ruin your coffee. We got to try some freshly brewed light roasted coffee and we’re loving it! Aside from hot coffee, I love cold brewed coffee too, it’s one of the coffee trends these days. The folks from coffee2GO have 3 varieties of them and my preference is veered towards the “cham” version. And what is coffee without the perfect mug to sip from? The handcrafted mugs from Kaleidos Art Tune would just be the perfect one for me. That’s not all! We also get to watch how mugs and handles are skilfully crafted out of clay. And our friend, Claudine got to try it out on her own with the owner’s guidance. So fun! To complement the dark, rich coffee, snacks to nibble on is a must. It’s not Christmas yet but I can definitely feel the Christmas vibes already at Good Coffee Day 2.0. Let’s have a Ginger Bread Man by the skillful pastry chefs at Harold’s Academy and bring home a Ginger Bread House. It’s going to look so festive. Eva’s Homemade Nougat is our very own country’s homemade nougat. They originated from Penang and have been in business for 4 years already. You get to try before you buy 😉 Have you guys tried Grid & Go at 1 Utama? So happy to have it at Pantai Sentral Park again. I had their signature Mochi Caramel waffle. It’s crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside! Don’t forget to catch their WAFFnesday promotion every Wednesday at 1 Utama. An eye catching finale after a sumptuous Christmas lunch is a must. I’m glad the cupcake decorating workshop held has given me some inspirations on how to dress up my dessert. Conducted by the glamorous founder of Coffee Jeans & Co herself, actress Tania Zara brought a celebrity shine to the workshop. Yum yum! Sweet treats for the sweet tooth! It’s a good idea to have some Sketcher Ice Cream before heading out. They hold 5 different varieties of 100% natural fruit potong ice-cream: Mango, Durian, Red Bean, Jackfruit and Banana. Try their signature Durian and Red Bean ones! To demonstrate the versatility of coffee, FAWN Beauty Co distributed jars of their all natural, hand crafted Cacao and Coffee Organic Body Scrub to the coffee aficionados. I’m eyeing on their Coal Handcrafted Cold Pressed Soap because it’s good to detoxify the skin, leaving it acne-free. Last but not least, let’s discover some coffee art. Oh, not the art that was draw on coffee, but art that was draw WITH coffee by artist Vivian Lees. Admiring her work of art while having my caricature drawn. Everything is so pretty! As a memento of this happy event, I had my coffee caricature drawn by the talented Vivian Lees during Good Coffee Day 2.0. In fact, almost everyone of us took home one! What do you think? Does it look like me?
