This cafe has very nice seating area indoors and good wifi. A cute two group faema E61. They serve local single origin bean with French press. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Excellent services. If you are a serious coffee espresso drinker you should probably order a tea! It's a shame the staff who made the espresso for me just does not have the skills!
I found this place while searching Google for cafes a few weeks ago. It's taken until today for me to visit because on my initial drive-by I wasn't overly impressed with it's appearance. Any misgivings were washed away when I walked in the door and saw the Faema E61 Legend. The last place I saw an E61 was Wellington's Memphis Belle, and that was a very smiley experience. This machine says a lot about the owner of a cafe. To find one here is possibly more surprising than finding a handful of La Marzoccos scattered around town. Yet in spite of this, Lavazza is the bean of choice. That said, I'm sure finding a decent, consistent, premium micro roaster is probably even harder than finding a good coffee in SEAsia. Yet in spite of the mass produced base, the Barista pulled a thoroughly enjoyable espresso. Good temperature, resilient, dark crema, full-bodied mouth and all without the chemical menace that I'm so used to. Next came a piccolo. After a little explanation as to what a picc was, the Barista's first effort was impressive. top marks. good consistency, good temp, well textured milk and, again, made the most of the moderately acidic Lavazza base to leave me wanting more! While I'm abstaining from bakery treats (so i can still fit through the door of these cafes) there was a little selection of cookies, cakes and breads that looked tasty. The cafe is also associated with the Java Arts Gallery, which has been running for over a decade and continues to display very high quality creative works. Check out their website for more. The best coffee I've had in SEAsia? I couldn't say for sure, but it's certainly up there!
