Georgetown (MY), 2014. Photography
The Kun-Keen coffee roasting plant in Georgetown in northern Malaysia is one of the oldest in the country. This is where possibly Malaysia’s most popular drink is made: Kopi, coffee roasted in butter and sugar. The ovens in the small roastery are fired up six days a week. Dense white steam rises from the iron pots, and a thick pitch-black liquid bubbles underneath. Workers stir the kettles with long iron rods. Kun-Keen is one of the few roasting plants that still produces coffee by hand.
