Black coffee or Kopi O was developed by Hainanese who migrated to Malaysia when many sailed to the shores of Nanyang during the late Qing dynasty. Drinking bitter and acidic western coffee reluctantly was a way of socializing and doing business with westerners, but they were unaccustomed to drinking western-style coffee. Back to history, those Hainanese who stayed in Malaysia or Singapore were running a coffee shop business. They modified the coffee roasting formula by adding in sugar, margarine, and salt. Nowadays, this type of coffee is popular in Malaysia and Singapore coffee shops, typically known as kopitiams. It's dark and glossy, with a rich, fragrant flavor. In the kopitiams, if you've been served, they will ask you such a question:
Will you want your brew with condensed milk? Just ask for kopi O. Fancy it black, no sugar.
They will use their own blend Liberica + Robusta mixed beans for the roasting. When handled right its low acidity and full flavor make for a delicious result.
