1st October is International Coffee Day and we want to celebrate coffee. There are more roasters opening shop in Malaysia and we are happy to get our hands on freshly roasted beans without having to step out of our home/office by ordering them online. You have no more excuses to not drink good coffee. Here you go:
Small batch coffee subscription
This is where you can order beans roasted by multiple coffee roasters in Malaysia. They support small batch roasters whom they feel are the most passionate people about coffee. Each month, Blaq Coffee will taste all the roasts from these roasters and pick their most favourite 2 to be featured. They also believe that home brewing is a ritual that is very rewarding and most importantly, saves money.
You can choose a monthly subscription plan 4 x 100mg coffee beans for filter coffee or 2 x 200mg coffee beans for espresso coffee. Every month, you will receive coffee beans that Blaq has tasted and chosen as their favourite. Or, you can customise your subscription and choose from single origin, espresso or blend.
Starting out as a café and small coffee retailer in Phileo Damansara, Sprezzatura’s business has quickly outgrown their 1kg roaster to a 5kg drum within 6 months.
