Pokka Xpress Coffee

Posted on 30 June 2008

I carried a few drinks back with me from Malaysia to test with the family. First up is “Pokka Xpress Coffee”. The label assured me that this drink was brewed “from Coffee Beans”. Always a good thing when dealing with the part of the world that brings you Kopi Luwak.

The color when poured was an unappealing brown. The taste, although watery, offered up decent coffee flavor with little sour or bitter aftertaste.

Unfortunately, I’ve no way to know the caffeine content of this drink. The label was wonderfully vague about the specifics, rather referring to some obscure measure called “Tenaga” or “Energy”.

Whatever Tenaga is, Pokka Xpress has 95 kcals of it.

I suspect I expended more than 95kcals lugging this can back with me.

UPDATE – Tenaga is the largest utility company in Malaysia. It’s all beginning to make sense now.

The rear of the can lists the ingredients as “Water, Freshly Brewed Coffee, Milk, Sugar, Permitted Stabilizer, and Permitted Flavouring.

Hrm. Permitted Flavouring.
