Coffee Amo is a popular cafe in Kuala Lumpur’s Chinatown, or otherwise more commonly known as Petaling Street. With its centralised location, many come to this cafe to rest their weary feet after shopping or to enjoy afternoon tea with their friends.
“Amo” translates to love in Italian and that is exactly what the baristas put into brewing your coffee—lots of love. Their speciality coffee which comes with 3D coffee art has been making rounds on Instagram, attracting both locals and tourists into the cafe.
If you are around the area, why not drop by and have a cuppa or two?
Located on the second level of a shophouse, visitors have to climb up a flight of stairs to reach Coffee Amo. The interiors are kept simple and the place is adorned with landscape pictures of scenery and chalk drawings on the walls.
A trip to Coffee Amo is only complete when you order their specialty drinks. Sweet 16 (RM16/S$5.30) is a latte infused with hints of hazelnut flavour and came with just the right blend of sweet and bitter for us. Of course, you can also choose to add in more sugar.
And can we just take a second to appreciate how adorable the foam kitten is? The skilled barista took less than five minutes to craft this out for us.
On the other hand, the Cheesecake (RM10/S$3.30) was like any average ones you can find outside—moist and comes with a simple biscuit base. We would say to skip the food and focus on the drinks instead, which is what Coffee Amo is known for.
If you are looking for something more exotic, go for the Kenya PB Kirimara, Ethiopia Sidamo Bensa or Panama Auromar Geisha.
