What I love about the coffee is that they grind the beans and brew them fresh. This helps in preserving the aroma and the taste of the coffee. There are 3 types of beans available, which are labelled as "Original", "Hazelnut", and "Mocha". We will talk about "coffee tasting" later.

Based on the 3 days coffee tasting trip to "Alley Johns", it is concluded that all 3 coffee beans bring out distinctive flavours.
Original: A combination of bitter and sweet, with chocolatey aftertaste.
Hazelnut: Slightly more bitter than Original, with nutty flavour.
Mocha: A stronger version of Original, bold and balanced.

Vietnamese coffee are made of strong Robusta beans, brewed and served with condensed milk, which add sweetness and warmth to the coffee. Perhaps a more wonderful feature of Vietnamese coffee is that it doesn't really increase the acidity in your stomach, which might cause discomfort after drinking coffee, as compared to fresh brew of American coffee like Starbucks. At the same time, "Dik Dik" coffee is really strong, suitable for those who are planning to burn midnight oil, preparing for test and final exam.
The warm and cozy decoration, soft Japanese tunes and dimmed lighting will certainly make you feel at home.
Alley Johns is opened from Monday to Sunday, except Thursday, starting from about 1.30pm till around 11 pm. The cozy and beautifully decorated coffee house is located at Kampar (Perak, Malaysia) Westlake New Town area, right beside "Old Town White Coffee" outlet.
Note: The coffee tasting experience is based on personal observation. Do try them yourself to find the flavour that suits you most :)
