After a year of selling coffee in a roadside-setup (alongside fruit sellers and pasembur food trucks), husband-and-wife team Cheau See and Chun Hoong finally have a place to call their own. Seraph Awaken is located on a quiet side street in Klang, a two-minute walk from the Klang KTM station. Taking over Wah Yuen (an 87-year old kopitiam), Seraph Awaken serves mainly coffee – siphon brews (Tanzania Kilimanjaro, Guatemala Antigua blend), lattes, their signature hibiscus coffee – in addition to flower teas and hot chocolate made with locally-sourced cocoa.
Guests familiar with their roadside days would recognise the small yellow stove used to boil water for meticulous hand brews. A tabletop lined with jars of coffee beans (they also roast and supply to other cafés) where the beans are carefully measured, ground and brewed to order serves as the focus of the café. Old wooden chairs, tables printed with faded world maps and rattan recliners (inherited from the previous owner) all come together on the pretty grey-green floor tiles. Forget vintage, this is the real deal.
