Pandan Gula Melaka Coffee

Obsessing over this Pandan Gula Melaka Coffee. Had my first taste during a short trip to Malacca and of course, I had to give it a go! You can adjust the sweetness depending on your preference or add as much coffee as you please (always a bonus), making it your own perfect drink.


1 tbsp gula melaka syrup (see directions below to make your own from scratch)

1 cup unsweetened organic soy milk (or any other non-dairy milk)

2 pandan leaves

1-2 shot(s) espresso coffee

Ice cubes


If making your own gula melaka syrup, add in 4 medium solid cubes of gula melaka and a splash of water in a saucepan. Boil on low heat until completely melted, then remove from heat and allow to rest. Store in a sealed glass container for later use.

In a separate saucepan, boil organic soy milk and pandan leaves on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Turn off heat, remove pandan leaves and cool.

In a tall glass, pour 1 tablespoon of gula melaka syrup. Then, fill the glass with ice cubes. Gently pour in the infused organic soy milk, followed by espresso coffee.

That’s it. Stir and enjoy immediately!
