HOW WE STARTED
103 coffee was founded in 2014 on the vision to establish a cafe forever grounded to specialty coffee. Being one of the pioneers to specialty coffee in Malaysia, our journey was not a clear one. Nevertheless, each cup we brought forward daily led us to the growth of our passionate team, as did our confidence to compete in tournaments.
Joining the first championship was 3; Ken Wong, Irvine Quek and Jewel Ting. It was a national championship where we brought back 2 awards. 2 years later, we took a step further and brought back our first international championship. Little did we know,championships became a generational impulse.
ALWAYS MOVING FORWARD
Gaining experience as well as acknowledgement led us to wanting more for our customer, which was how our roastery was established in the year 2017. In many following years, we hope to always be vital to the beverage industry, bringing the coffee community into greater public awareness through creative coffee experiences,bridging the knowledge gap between novices and experts.
ABOUT OUR COFFEE
Our beans, ranging from espresso roast to filter roast and drip bags, are typically selected from the best farms. After harvesting, our skilled roasters take on the responsibility of bringing out every beans’ unique aroma and fragrance. As we take much pride in the quality of our arabica beans, we believe that every step in making coffee weighs into its taste. Proceeding to sort each tray of roasted beans after roasting ensures that the percentage of defective beans are controlled, delivering consistency in every pack. All in the effort to redefine Black Coloured Beverages as flat.
