The latest coffee outlet in Bangsar – Coffea Coffee – has been making big waves, as it serves coffee beans from seven top producing farms across the globe. After rave comments from a few friends, rif and I skipped our usual coffee place and checked out Coffea Coffee.
We liked the look and feel of the place; spacious with plenty of wood element. Service was also quite good. The staff were efficient and pleasant, despite the high volume of people that evening. I ordered a Maestro latte while rif had a Colombian Supremo.
His coffee was milder than I expected it to be. Usually, I order a Colombian when I need a caffeine kick, but Coffea Coffee’s version was light bodied with a mild acidity. If the Colombian is this mild, I wonder how the Ethiopian will taste like. Maybe I should find out.
My latte was disappointing. I picked the bold Maestro because I like stronger lattes. While it was far from a terrible cup, it wasn’t something I’d order again. The coffee flavour was rather subdued and it didn’t have a rich aroma as advertised. I think I’d stick to the Single Origins, or request for a double shot. If that’s possible.
I guess it’s a matter of preference, as the flock of people at Coffea Coffee would probably
stone me to death disagree with me.
