Having been checking out the cafe scene in Thomson area, my cafe hopping has brought me to One Man Coffee, November 8, Yahava KoffeeWorks and today we are going to drop by Oz Specialty Coffee at Sin Ming Road just off Upper Thomson Road.
I have heard that Oz Specality Coffee served a pretty awesome cup of coffee so I made my way on one weekday to check out the place. During my visit, the cafe was serving two types of coffee beans, common man coffee roaster or pacamara house blend.
Caffe Latte 4.2/5
After much consideration and the patient barista for explaining the different characteristic of the coffee beans, I decided to go for the Common Man Coffee Roaster beans for my cup of Caffe Latte ($4.50/$5.50). When the barista told me that the pacamara house blend is on the acidity side, it was quite an easy choice for me as I don't like coffee that is acidic. I am glad with my choice as the coffee has a nice buttery and nutty taste.
Caffe Latte 4.2/5
The cafe is pretty small with about 5 indoor wall facing seats with about 5 to 6 outdoors tables along the corridor. Although there is a staircase in the cafe leading to the second level, it is used as storage place. Even thought it is small, it is a cozy little place with good coffee. I have read that their food items are pretty good too. I did not try them during my visit as I had another appointment after that. I was just stopping by to try their coffee. Oz Specialty Coffee also provides free Wifi too.
