In Penang, there are actually a lot of things to discover. The most recent discover was a Coffee Shop that had its very own signature brew. Although I am not a coffee lover but I can still take it. Coffee Lane is located in one of the classic heritage shop housing in the banking zone of Penang.
It was our casual meeting up with CK
and Ken(only realize he is from PG too) had fantastic lunch introduce by CK and she brought us to this shop to be pampered.
When I walked into the shop, I fell in love with the little yet cozy with heritage feel and filled with the cold of aircon in the room just makes me so comfortable.
The coffee or tea making area is filled with simple decorations and besides that, he does sell some special coffee making brewing little equipment.
Their shop is still very brand new and their specialty serving is more on coffee and as for lunch time, they do have menu for that too with reasonable pricing.
‘Ice Cream Coffee’ RM8.50
‘Ice Black Coffee with Sugar’ RM 7.50
‘Ice Coffee with Milk(cold)’ RM8
Since I am a newbie in this turf, CK recommend me to go for ‘Syphon Brewing Coffee’ that I must witness the unique of how the coffee is made with their mini station.
The very first thing when I saw this cart reminds me of high school time during lab class sessions.
The mini cart is equip with, mini tank gas, a build in ‘Penunu Bunsen’(very long never use this word already) and a glass to block on the heat.
The very first step to start the whole process is to light on the Penunu Bunsen and change the fire light to sky blue which mean the highest burning state.
Next is to place the glass flask above it to boil the water on it.
Then place another type of glass flask that has a tube in the middle to connect it with another flask and covers with blended coffee powder.
Amazingly the boil water starts to pump up to the top flask and mix the water and the coffee power.
When it reaches the climax. . .
The second part of the process which is the pure coffee blended taste will flow back to the bottom flask.
This is the great man behind the coffee making process full with passion and looking on a lot of coffee tasting and telling you the taste of the bean from different countries; Terry Beh (the owner) of the shop. To me he is like a expert in coffee as in similar to those people in wine tasting.
When it was pour out, we can smell the strong taste of the coffee covering all around the table, even Ken smells it nice. The taste of the coffee totally taste different, it’s a bit orangy in taste yet very aromatic coffee bean and I enjoy myself with this cup of coffee.
Then we got serve a ‘Ti Ah Koay’ which I love it very much as I always eat it at New World Park but this homemade version by his mother, I have feel in love deeply with this serving. Its soft and taste a bit like jelly but with the Melaka sugar top on its just very good compare to the one at new world park.
Thanks alot to CK for exposing us such a great place and really had a good times with you guys on that lovely evening over a cup of coffee.Looking out for more. Catch up with you soon.
