The cafe stretches over 2 floors, with the 2nd probably destined for extended study and date sessions.
There is a lot of attention put into the setup and details, for example a whole line of syphon brewers along the brew bar.
Plenty of beans to choose from too:
Preparation was very spotty, though: Brown paper filters were used but not rinsed, also carafe and dripper were not heated up. Also, there was no scale or timer anywhere – so a really consistent pour would probably be hard to achieve.
But then again the barista did take a lot of time and focus on the brew and the beans were clearly very fresh as there was plenty of blooming going on:
The place could be worth checking out if you’re in the area, and we will check back in to see if this was just a different kind of day.
