Barista had very strong passion for coffee, and various types filter coffees to explore. Had panama 90 , which was nice. However, seatings are limited and relatively expensive. But nice quality.

Panama 90+ Gesha cold fermentation had a buttery mouthfeel, low acidity and was very clean. Was more subtle than some Geshas, towards the vanilla, molasses end of the spectrum with maybe some apricot. A gentle brew. Espresso on an Ethiopian had a nice toffee tone

Burundi beans for the espresso had a nice dash of acidity and maybe some marmalade. Filter on Panama 90+ Gesha Yellow Natural processed was extremely impressive with an aroma of oak matured sour beer. Had a buttery mouthfeel, mature round sweetness, sort of mild caramel. Increase in acidity and more fruity notes on cooling. Awesome, just made me want to just drink more.

It’s all about the coffee. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Perfect for a quick shot or to take time to relax with your favourite brew. Retro cartoons on a tv add the quirk while the tasting notes and cafe bar setup give it that traditional cafe style.

Awesome cafe with a cool layout and theme inside. It's about a 10 minute walk from Central and so worth it. The coffee itself lived up to all its anticipation.
