Imagine a coffee geek ideal dream set up: you have it ALL here !

And with

Industrial meet luxury chic situated just slightly off the busy Causeway Bay area on Yiu Wah Street

Handsome baristas ( movie like star cast just looking as sharp as on a huge photo on the wall)

Attractive looking dessert and food menu ( didn’t have chance to taste but by chance a magazine photo shoot)
It should do well, if service is bit more friendly.

( they only serve bottled still/ sparkling or hot water… Even I was given a glass of filtered water ( I hope) earlier on from their counter top hot/cold drinking tap)

Espresso: house blend with 93 points from Coffee Review: a smooth balanced distinct soft berries/ peel acidity ( hint of bergamot floral) yet predominantly sweet nuts and mint dark cocoa cup

Again it is on the heavier side for the weather.

An exceptionally kind barista shared some insight experience on Chemex and tasted their SO.

One very clear distinctive showmanship is that no doubt they have one of the most amazing latte art I ever seen in real life!

Looking forward to come back and taste more experiments in their roast/ blends.
