Following to the dinner at Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf
we made another first-time visit to Coffee Mania 
which is just a stone throw away from Bangsar Village.

Coffee Mania brave entry to Bangsar which is now dominated by Coffea Coffee
is definitely an admirable move and I ought to try it out!

It was a very quick change of mind when I was left unconvincing 
upon entering the quiet outlet. 
There wasn't much patron compared to other busy neighboring outlets.
Does it mean that it's not good? 

Flipping though their extensive menu, 
I was greatly surprised that affogato is NOT in the list!



Being astounded by this, 
I asked the waiter if they have vanilla ice-cream at all.
Confirming that it is a yes, I ordered double shot of espresso 
and a single scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

The espresso tasted good but the vanilla ice-cream melted
before I could take a perfect scoop of it.

The dinner-mate ordered himself a Kopi Luwak, which is widely known as
the "cat shit coffee" - well, that's the disgusting way to put it.

In a more informative way, civet cats (luwak) loves coffee beans and they
picked only the finest coffee beans to eat, which is then excreted in 
a partially digested formand the farmers would collect
the feces from the ground for roasting

A cup of luwak coffee cost RM40.00 in Coffee Mania.
Looking at the processes involved, and the fact that it
is "specially made" by the cats, we deemed it is reasonable.

The dinner-mate tasted it and it was too light in body.
One unforgettable comment was "Kopitiam kopi-o taste better".
