Yahava KoffeeWorks @ Jalan Gelenggang (Upper Thomson)
I sort of chance upon this cafe if not for the ramen making session at The Eureka Cooking Lab. It was after our ramen making session and we want to go for a cup of coffee that someone in the group suggested Yahava KoffeeWorks which is just further down the corner of Jalan Kuras. I actually missed the entrance of the cafe because I mistaken it as a pub with its wooden exterior and dimly lit.
Stepping into the aroma filled cafe, it felt as if I have entered a coffee museum with the different blend of coffee for tasting. There is even a coffee roaster machine inside the cafe. It is understand that the coffee beans were sourced from around the world and one can even have a coffee tasting of these black golds from different part of the global.
We did not order any pastries at the cafe as it did not look that appetising. They were mostly sourced from suppliers.
Interestingly at Yahava KoffeeWorks be it that you order a Flat White, Long Black, Cappuccino or Latte all is a standard flat price. We have the regular size for all the coffee we ordered and they are only $5 each. We did not take note what blend of coffee we are drinking that day but it was pretty decent, a nice balance of acidity and bitterness. Maybe in my next visit, I should spend more time tasting the different blend before deciding on my cup of coffee.
