Welcome

Cloud Catcher is Asia's one-stop centre for specialty coffee and certified Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) Campus based in Malaysia.  

The true coffee connoisseurs of today face a number of challenges, including the dissatisfaction with mainstream products in the market, limited access to quality green beans and taste inconsistency from being at the mercy of the supplier. Cloud Catcher was conceived with a passion for specialty coffee and to assist an ever expanding coffee industry and spread coffee culture through education. We aim to help you understand the beautiful art and science of coffee.

SCA Campus

 

We Travel

The love affair of coffee has taken us on a journey to seek out the best green beans. From the infamous farms to the famous farmers all over the world including Thailand, Indonesia, Honduras, Ethiopia and Colombia, we have travelled and discovered the warmth coffee brings to our souls.

We Get Our Hands Dirty

At Cloud Catcher, we hunt and handpick all our coffee beans and we personally get to know all the farmers at origin, trying to involve ourselves in as many growing, blending and roasting processes possible. The best soil quality, land cultivation, the most effective waterway systems, altitudes and microclimate must be managed for the best harvest. By understanding how the best quality coffees are grown at their origins, we are able provide you the knowledge and skills with humble yet inspiring stories woven into them.

We Give Back

Sustainable relationships with the farmers is the foundation of our philosophy. This means helping them improve their crop to ensure quality coffee is produced consistently, keeping them in business. Responsible sourcing, the environment, quality, and you, the customer, come first which is why we take pride and care in ensuring that every green bean is bought directly from quality committed farmers at a more than fair rate via Project Origin & Chapola Project. The farmers we do business with are well compensated above market standards so that every green bean produced is grown with love and all our coffees taste exquisite.

Project Origin by Sasa Sestic

Our Coffee Journey

Seed to Cup

The understanding of how good coffee is made is a long, tedious, continuous but fun process. Cloud Catcher started from scratch by tracing the green beans back to its origins and learning how they are treated as young saplings in the nursery, choosing the right soil, harvesting, sorting, blending, roasting, cupping and scoring based on taste. Every step in the production of a good of coffee is interrelated, you need good brewing skills, an exceptional roast profile and, of course, un-compromised farming techniques at the source (soil, climate, selective picking, processing, etc)

 

Driven by Passion

Cloud Catcher is led by YBhg. Dato' Elvin, Founder of Cloud Catcher who is a SCAA Certified Roaster, Barista, CQI Q Grader and recently recipient of Malaysia Top 100 Young Entrepreneur Award.

Tristan, Cloud Catcher's 2IC brings a wealth of experience in the coffee industry from working, training and competing as a barista to owning and operating cafes and a coffee roastery in Australia.

Testimonials

What's more important than actual testimonials from our customers.

Lots of stonefruits characteristics and super clean. Apricots, sparkling lemon acidity, and a lingering hint of black current. This is a true representation of Elkin's hardwork at the farm. All these elements is why we love the freezing process. Well done Cloud Catcher, you guys brought out the best potential of this coffee!

Cloud catcher has been really dedicated to source the best quality of green coffee ever since they started the business, and I believe by making coffee much more accessible, it could help to raise the quality of specialty coffee in Malaysia.

Keep up the great work guys as I would love to see a better future in all of us!

This coffee is complex in flavor and has juicy sweetness in a balanced cup. Clean acidity is prominent and finishes with lychee and intense florals. A great coffee if you want something slightly adventurous, but still comforting and familiar.

El Sauce has a very nice juicy mouthfeel. The coffee is well structured, with ripe mandarins and distinct peach like finish. Definitely one of the best Colombia cultivars I've tasted.

Sweet & chocolaty which harmonizes beautifully with milk. Wide sweet spot & consistent shots leading to less wastage. Still tastes amazing even up to 4 weeks.

Coffees have been performing exceptionally well on our espresso based drinks be it for black or white. Additionally, their filter coffees also taste really good and have been receiving positive feedback from all of our customers who dined at Yellow Brick Road.
