A Good Taste of Coffee at The Beach Hospital

Lately I have been running The Beach Hospital in Ipoh frequently because of my parents. Although it's not a big deal as it's just some simple check up and regular observation, but still it really does takes up a lot of time. Sometimes we have to wait for one whole day or more then 8 hours. As there are basically nothing that I can do but wait, I often did my waiting at a small cafe located somewhere around The Beach Hospital.

    The cafe is just a small scale of stall which only sells some coffee and desserts. As you can see in the picture, that's just about everything the cafe have. There aren't many customers because mostly these people did not come for the coffee. Most customers, just like me are here because of other reason. We all have a common goal, just that we are taking a break from waiting. We try to relax and have a cup of coffee. I ordered a regular cup of coffee and a small slice of cheese cake to go along with it. Well, to my surprise the price is a lot lower then I expected. It's definitely a lot cheaper then having coffee from those famous franchise coffee shop. I was served with a cup of black coffee, couple pack of sugar, a small cup of creamer and of cause the small slice of cheese cake. My second surprise starts here. The coffee actually taste good. It's not local Malaysia brew coffee where you have the strong taste and kick. It taste more like foreign coffee similar with those that you get from Starbucks, Coffee Bean or MacDonald. After mixing the black coffee with sugar and creamer, it taste much better. I happened to enjoy the cup of coffee for about half an hour. Although I have a lot of time to enjoy the coffee, unfortunately coffee taste good only when it's hot. I have no choice but to finish the coffee while it still taste good.

    I suppose coffee taste better when you have time to enjoy it. Well, in my situation my intention was to kill time rather then spare my time particularly for the coffee. Perhaps one other ingredient that makes coffee taste better is the waiting.

P/S: Hospitals are well known about bad taste of food. I'm glad that I still manage to find some good coffee while waiting. I don't suppose I can convince you to take a trip specially to The Beach Hospital in Ipoh just to try out the coffee. But if you really need to stop by there, try out the coffee. It might helps to make you feel better.

You note so truly one of the main ingredients that makes coffee taste better. It is the waiting. And it is impossible to shop it anywhere. That talks a lot and is worthy pondering - deserves the separate article.
Yours lickerish Butterfly in the Plaster thanks in advance.
