This proved to be very easy to find, which is definitely a plus (cannot be said for many). I have heard about this coffee shop for quite some time from a friend, and finally got the chance to visit. Here’s what I found.
Initially, it’s pretty nice with a couple of low bars. The barista area is fitted with some Edison lamps, which is cool. To be honest though, there really just isn’t much going for it to set it apart.
**Update: the inside has been changed is quite cool now. Small couches line the walls, and the tables have some cool pebbles and flowers.
It’s just average. The AC does work well. There is no smoke. It has good music and wifi, but the traffic is also really loud outside.
All the seating is made up of just plain wooden chairs or stools, so it’s not recommended to stay too long. **Update: as stated above, they have couches now. While they are not super comfortable, they are a marked improvement.
I must say that the coffee is impressive. I tried coffee from the island Sumba for the first time, and also tried chemex for the first time. It did not disappoint. I will go out on a limb and say it’s the best cup of coffee I’ve had yet. Perhaps it’s just the chemex… In my amateur coffee tasting opinion, it seems that often times coffee here is under extracted, leading it to be more sour. Chemex seems to be a solution to that since brewing time is more or less fixed, instead of something like French press or Aeropress. I will certainly be trying more pour-over methods around town in the future because of this shop.

There’s nothing that really sets this place apart. It’s a solid place to stop by for a quick cup if you’re nearby, but there’s no reason to put this on your list of shops to visit.
**Update: I would definitely recommend this shop now! The baristas are super nice and helpful. It’s a great place to meet up with people and hangout. Plus they’ve changed it up a bit, so it’s nicer inside now.
