On & off, we would love to scout for a new “yum cha” place, particularly somewhere that spells COFFEE aromatically.
Though the addiction with Coffee Stain were still proportionally rising, we dropped by Espresso Lab on a Saturday morning for some caffeine fix having heard so much about it & Hot Shots is not open on weekend.

Upon entering Espresso Lab, you’ll definitely agree that its interior is a perfect match with its name. It resembles a lab. A lab filled with coffee machines, busy baristas and minimal tables & chairs. Espresso lab is a provider of specialty coffee or better known as a coffee workshop providing barista training, certification, coffee appreciation as well as conduction technical workshops.
FYI, no food is served here. You’ll see a sign that reads “Feel free to bring your own food/ snacks” upon entering as they only serve light pastries like cookies or biscotti as their main focus would be their coffee.
They also conduct retail and wholesale of freshly roasted coffee beans, catering services and private function venue.
Espresso Lab was brought to the limelight by its ex-director JH Yee, a certified barista who won this year’s Malaysian Barista Championship and has represented Malaysia in the Asia Barista challenge, finished as the 2nd runner up. Great achievement that moulded him to concentrate on brewing cups of caffeinated perfection.
Their beverage selection is limited and straight to the point: Espresso with or without milk
Thus it’s a no-fuss when it comes to ordering your latte, flat white, long black etc…
They also offer different sizes of coffee (in Oz), and your can choose from their single origin or house blend. Average priced from RM6 – RM13
For non coffee drinkers, you can opt for their hot chocolate or house blend which is less bitter in taste 🙂
They have also open their branches at e@Curve Mutiara Damansara & The Gardens Mall.
You clear my mind
You give me energy
