#1 - A Visit To Antong Coffee Mill, Taiping.

After our lunch at Restoran Chai Chin, some of us wanted to visit the Segari Turtle Sanctuary and that meant we have to go back the way we came from. Then somehow along the way, we changed our minds and decided to drive to Taiping. We stopped for a durian snack along the way and I will be posting about it on a later date.

We were back on the road after our durian snack. We were told to follow the 1st car because they were going to take us to a place to taste good coffee. Being a coffee lover, I presumed we were going to a coffee shop or a cafe.
We followed closely behind the 1st car and we were brought to this place. My good friends brought us to visit Antong Coffee Mill in Taiping. The moment I opened the car door, I could smelled the wonderful aroma of freshly grilled coffee. A busload of tourists were there before us.
Antong Coffee Mill is a historical coffee mill and a popular spot for tourists from far and near.  According to a flyer, it is about 81 years old charcoal grilled coffee factory. If you are interested to visit or to organize an educational tour, you can call up for an appointment.

  14. I am drinking coffee as I read this! This place is awesome, and you know it will be so fresh. I have never heard of coffee made this way. Have you ever had flavored coffee?Do people still use Trishaws, or is this just an exhibit?This one is pretty.

    1. This is the first time I visited a coffee mill. I have tasted flavoured coffee and I still prefer the original flavour. Trishaws are no longer in use except maybe in tourist places. This one still look new.
