The Best Tongkat Ali Coffee Is Home Made: Here is one recipe you should try

If you are searching for the best Tongkat Ali coffee that can lift your day, then this article is for you.

What most people are not aware of is that Tongkat Ali coffee was made popular by Malaysians. If you been to Malaysia, you will find Tongkat Ali coffee served at traditional coffee shops, tucked away in urban and sub-urban areas.

In fact, Malaysia is blessed with coffee and tea culture, dated centuries ago with an array of traditional herbal-infused coffees and teas. Due to modern science and rapid food technology, Tongkat Ali coffee has gained more prominence and popularity compared to Ginseng tea. 

Quintessentially Malaysian, Tongkat Ali (from Eurycoma Longifolia) is extremely popular amongst general consumers and health aficionados due to its versatility and wide range of health benefits. The maturity of this herb has reached its peak amongst the global research community due to its endless and proven health benefits.

Whilst Tongkat Ali coffee comes in a variety of quality due to manufacturing processes and technology extraction, you need thorough research to understand which brands of Tongkat Ali coffee that are suited to your health objectives.

Top Tongkat Ali Coffee. Which is the best?

Fast forward to the present time, there are more than 112 Tongkat Ali coffee on Amazon, and more than 300 Tongkat Ali coffee on Lazada.

So which brand is the top-selling Tongkat Ali coffee?

Unfortunately, top Tongkat Ali coffee sold in the market today is not necessarily the best. More so if you are a coffee lover.

Since Tongkat Ali can be consumed in a stand-alone capsule form or even infused in coffee or tea, the best Tongkat Ali coffee is always down to the taste and how both Tongkat Ali and coffee deliver its potency to benefit your body.

In other words, the best top Tongkat Ali coffee is tailor-made to suit your taste and health objectives

Since we are on the subject of coffee, let’s think about it this way.

The best artisan coffee that you are usually made from custom blend roasted beans alongside the right mix of ingredients to give you that distinctive taste and aroma. At the same time, your favourite barista is more than willing to customize your coffee based on the acidity, the type of milk, and other parameters to suit your taste.

This applies the same way and we are about to share how to make the best Tongkat Ali coffee recipe that you can enjoy daily that is proven to energize your body instantly!

However, if time is not on your side or prefer convenience over finesse, then pre-mixed three-in-one Tongkat Ali coffee is the next best solution.

The three-in-one Tongkat Ali coffee comes in powder packets and contains primary ingredients such as coffee, sugar and Tongkat Ali. The amount of these ingredients vary greatly from each brand.

Beware of high processed sugar content in three-in-one instant Tongkat Ali coffee

Due to various mix of ingredients, you may not get the best coffee taste or the best from Tongkat Ali. However, there are still popular brands of Tongkat Ali coffee that are sold on Amazon or Lazada today such as:

  • AliCafe Tongkat Ali Coffee by PowerRoot
  • Coffee Omega Tongkat Ali Coffee
  • Nu-Prep Tongkat Ali Coffee

The Best Tongkat Ali Coffee Is Home Made

Despite the wide availability of Tongkat Ali coffee that you can purchase online today, there are three reasons why you should make your own Tongkat Ali coffee:

  1. The amount of Tongkat Ali available in the 3-in-1 prepacked Tongkat Ali coffee is usually less than 5mg. It does not give any benefit or much of a difference to your energy.
  2. The content of processed sugar in 3-in-1 Tongkat Ali coffees is very high – so you will end up consuming sugar, rather than reaping the real benefits from Tongkat Ali bio-active compounds.
  3. The coffee bean contained in the pre-mixed packet is not the best bean compared to the artisan coffee that you obtain from your favourite coffee shop.

So we have devised a simple Tongkat Ali coffee recipe that will kick-start your day with a bang in three simple steps!

With this tried-and-tested recipe using natural ingredients and the help of freeze-dried Tongkat Ali blend by AKARALI, the boost of energy is noticeable after you complete your first cup. 

Best Tongkat Ali Coffee In 3 Simple Steps


  • 1 cup of brewed freeze-dried coffee (medium roast by Haco SUISS)
  • ½ teaspoon of Tongkat Ali (equivalent to 1 capsule of 200mg AKARALI)
  • 1 teaspoon of Australian Bush Honey
  • ¼ teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ cup of whole milk (if required)


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the coffee, milk, honey and Tongkat Ali. Cook and stir with low heat for 5 minutes. (Please do not let it boil.)
  2. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour into cups or mugs and serve immediately.


Depending on the type of coffee that you use, the taste will be predominantly overwhelmed by the core coffee with mildly sweet honey aftertaste accompanied by a hint of bitterness from Tongkat Ali. The taste can be improved further by adding more honey or vanilla according to your taste.

How often can I consume Tongkat Ali coffee?

In countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia, Tongkat Ali coffee is consumed daily from all walks of life. Whether it is two, three or even four cups, the amount that you can consume largely depends on your tolerance as to how your body reacts on caffeine, and the amount of Tongkat Ali is added in the coffee.


If you are consuming three-in-one Tongkat Ali coffee from any of the brands sold online, you may end up getting energy from processed sugar instead of natural energy that your body produces due to Tongkat Ali bio-active compounds. The effect is more commonly known as the “sugar rush”. This artificial boost fueled by sugar can be detrimental if consumed in the long run.

However, in case you need to add AKARALI into your favourite coffee,  our recommended dosage is up to 400 mg – 600mg daily. This is due to its higher potency compared to other Tongkat Ali products.

In short, use 1 capsule in each serving (in a cup with coffee) – ideally one in the morning and one in the evening after early dinner.
