I found this awesome coffee shop while wandering around near the Kowloon area of Hong Kong. The door to the coffee shop is amazing – an espresso tamper! I will definitely steal that if I ever open up a brick and mortar.
If you’re in Hong Kong I highly recommend this place. The baristas are meticulous, and they take the utmost care in all aspects of making your coffee (too much care almost – it took about 8 minutes to get my cup after ordering). The presentation was spectacular as well.
Nice balanced nose of malt balls and milk chocolate. Very smooth, juicy, stone fruits, plum, milky and nutty chocolate. Dry finish, which leaves a somewhat unpleasant mouthfeel. The flavor is so good that I can overlook the dryness. The lingering finish has a hint of tobacco.
Made as a pour over – fine grind, 20g coffee/300g water, Hario filter
