When it comes to coffee, I prefer mine black with a bit of milk in the morning just before I go for meetings. After work or during the weekend, it’s usually a flat white or if that’s not available, a latte.
I also emphasis quite a fair bit on coffee art because it not only makes the drink look more appetizing, but demonstrates the detail to attention a barista has. Plus you’re paying at least RM10 per cup so there ought to be some level of presentation, I reckon.
Ministry of Coffee in Solaris Mont Kiara serves Doi Chaang Coffee and for the uninitiated, it is a single origin from Thailand that is organic and handpicked to ensure the highest of quality. Unfortunately, my experience here was short of enjoyable.
For starters, I found the service disjointed and the flat white I ordered came sans coffee art. The waiter had the cheek to tell me the foam on top of my coffee was indeed ‘art’. Their interpretation of art, so it seemed.
rif’s latte however, came with coffee art so that says a lot about their detail to attention. And consistency. Tastewise, I didn’t find my coffee very good; it was weaker than I liked it to be. The latte was equally meek and disappointing. We were both unimpressed.

Verdict: Average coffee, but it was the non-existent coffee art that tipped me to a point of no return.
