Reviews of MÁS Espresso
This was a very serious disappointment to me. I was seduced by the 9.8 rating although I saw it was six new BH users. But I asked for a SO and they do not have one. So I had to have the standard blend which always scares me as an espresso drinker as these are created round milk coffees. It arrived in the hottest espresso cup I have ever had. Not sure that had any effect really. But it is intensely bitter despite being well extracted. As also in cafes getting over nine they always offer sparkling min water shots to espresso drinkers. On the plus side the service is very good despite the order for a short black getting turned into a long black. But easily rectified and I was offered a glass of water which cane with ice. So if you are an espresso drinker I cannot recommend Mas.
I had my in laws visiting for the weekend and we enjoyed exploring new places together. After an enjoyable morning we were about to head home but my mother in law wanted a coffee. Usually this is fraught with danger as she loves a good coffee but won't put up with average coffee. Me? I just look at a bad coffee as an opportunity to remind myself how good good coffee is. Well here's what you're reading this for. My mother in law loved the coffee from here. In fact when she returned to Auckland she started hounding her local haunt to contact them. I feel bad for those guys but not really. Long story short. Great coffee, friendly staff and yummo food.
Excellent coffee. However they served my flat white in a tall cup instead of the expected round one which reduced the amount of foam effect. They should know... they would know if they were a true speciality coffee shop. Also they close at 4pm !!! They were very kind to let me have my coffee inside in a proper cup despite arriving at 3:55... Atmosphere is average as it’s in a sort of glass building. Seating is so so and it doesn’t feel cozy or warm in any way. Now the coffee itself is very good, apart from the cupping they do prepare it very well. It is strong and has a very nice kick whilst remaining smooth, and that’s what matters most.
