The small entrance to Feeka coffee roaster, you could miss that if you were to drive too fast. 

Coffee drinking culture is not a new trend in Malaysia. We enjoy the local coffee with or without milk brews from Liberica, and later on everyone will at least try out the big coffee chain like Starbucks or Coffee Beans and Tea Leaves once. Then, there are many independent cafes booming ever since the third wave coffee trend started, which has been long in the other sides of the world. People tend to appreciate coffee more than before.

Coffee is one of the things I can’t live without and I consider café hopping to be a fun thing to do especially on weekends.

I couldn’t remember how I came across Feeka Coffee Roaster, but I surely know it’s a place I would want to find out if they serve good coffee. Besides, I would want to get some whole beans from them, too. 

Cosy ambient in the café.

The café is not difficult to locate if you have a GPS, but getting a parking lot can be tricky. The café is located at one of the old shop lots in Jalan Mesui near Jalan Alor or Golden Triangle. It has both the outdoor and indoor seats at your choice. The indoor seats are very comfy, there’s a long stretch of bench seating and chairs on the left from the entrance, which is sufficient for 20 customers or more, and another small lounge like area with sofas on the right from the entrance for a group of 6-8 customers. 

Nice barista counter and macines. The hand brew counter is on the left while cashier is on the right. The customers could take the counter seats and watch them brew the coffee.

The waiter handed us a very simple and text-only menu with good selection of hot food, sandwiches and drinks. Besides espresso based coffee, Feeka also brews single origin coffee with aeropress, pour over and even cold brew. Although we prefer to see a menu with pictures, we are still happy to be adventurous once a while to pick something we think we’ll like it. After all, that’s what we do, pick and try.

The text-only menu. A good selection of coffee.

We ordered a café latte, steak & fries and salsa sea bass for lunch. The café latte was served in a 6-oz glass, tasted balanced and good. The steak and fries was plain and simple. The salsa sea bass came with attractive presentation. The pan-fried sea bass was served on a plate of chunky mashed potato and topped with fresh tomato salsa. The non-spicy salsa was just a little sour and lightly taste, good match for sea bass as I could still taste the sweetness of the fish.

6-oz café latte at RM 10

Steak & Fries at RM 24

Salsa sea bass at RM 21

I have to say the portion is quite small but it was just enough for me. So that leaves the customer an option to pick up some desserts from the bar. The dessert looks generous in portion at price of RM 10 – 15.

There's a dessert bar next to the cashier and some coffee beans for sale. 

Overall, it is a pleasant café with good selection of food, definitely good latte. I have yet to try the hand brew coffee, but sitting near the barista counter and looking at how they do it makes me planning to return for it. Not forgetting, I also brought home a pack of Brazil beans for espresso, it has pleasant aroma and tasted medium acidity, sweet with dark chocolate after-taste.
