Is it white because of whitening?!

I found this last night. White coffee.

I never knew it before, so i decided to buy it and tried this morning.

In fact, white Coffee don't have white color :p

In many English-speaking countries, white coffee is used to refer to regular black coffee that has had milk or cream added to it. Maybe In Indonesia people known it as kopi susu?! While I am googling, I also found Ipoh White coffee. Ipoh white coffee from Ipoh, Perak, Malaysia. White Coffee originates from literal translation of its Chinese name, which was introduced by Chinese migrants who came to work in the tin mine. When traditionally, Malaysian style black coffee roast (Kopi-O) is produced by roasting the beans with sugar, margarine and wheat. Ipoh White is produced with only margarine without sugar. So that's way it is less dark roast.

One of the common claims about white coffee is that it is higher in caffeine than normal coffee. Usually, i prefer drink single origin (blended coffee from a single country, growing region, or plantation. Sometimes called straight coffee), I think it has less of the acidity that reg coffee has and doesn't upset my stomach.

Good to try ^_^
