The Story Of Beans Depot
Each roastery has its unique story. It wasn’t an easy journey, especially focusing on specialty coffee. As a coffee roaster, the founder wanted to highlight the characteristics of each coffee bean.
The founder started to research and travel around to experience the coffee culture of each country and was inspired by European countries that sell coffee and coffee beans by origin in their retail shops.
She started picking up coffee-making and even roasting skills to serve her customers better. She started in a small little garage size shop back in 2012. Besides sharing with coffee lovers about different coffee origins, brewing methods, and coffee beverages, she believes that baristas should feel proud and respected for their profession standing behind a coffee bar. This is how Malaysia Specialty Coffee Association (MSCA) was formed to upgrade and standardize the local coffee scene. MSCA is also a platform to train and develop talents and make known Malaysian baristas to the world.
There are good times and bad times. It was a tough time for all F&B businesses during the pandemic. It can be discouraging, but they came out with their home recipes at that time and have gained popularity since then.
