Top Brew Coffee Bar, Plaza Damas


Menu on the wall

Ever since I discovered my favourite coffee places, I’ve been quite disconnected with the growing coffee scene in Kuala Lumpur. Only recently did I realise, it has grown significantly. The last year or so saw the rise of new cafes and coffee bars where coffee making is regarded as a high form of craft.


Coffee Bar




Coffee love

Top Brew Coffee Bar is one of them, run by JH Yee, winner of the 2012 national Malaysia Barista Championship and 2nd runner-up in the regional Food Hotel Asia Barista Challenge. We went with the house blend – Top Brew Blend #1.


Our daily dose


Flat white

My flat white was aromatic and smooth in texture, and medium bodied with a sweet finish. These days, I prefer a flat white to latte because the former is less milky. The latte was also pretty good – flavour mellowed as the coffee cools. I feel it has more changes in flavour compared to the flat white.




Pretty art

The café is fairly spacious and cosy, with a long coffee bar for you to watch as your coffee gets made. Location is a bit secluded, but it’s easily accessible via the overhead pass from Hartamas Shopping Centre.

Ambiance: 6/10
Price: 6/10
Coffee: 7.5/10
Verdict: Coffee’s good and the coffee art is also commendable. 🙂
