    The Brazilian 6oz is magical! Creamy with hint of sweetness. It's one of those that you really don't want it to finish. The staff are friendly and expert. The place is refreshing. Highly recommended

    I think those people dignifies espresso! Best in town.. Cold drip coffee is must ( Just taste it if you are not convinced with cold coffee idea) 9.5/10 for the coffee only ps. Only coffee served here

    #1 Coffee House in UAE, I tried 2 Espresso and they are member in SCAA & SCAE. Also, it is the only coffee house in UAE where they don't serve sugar at all. I also, loved their secret menu .

    Everything is great. Try the Panama geisha for cold brew. Or stick to your favourite milk based coffee. Either way, you will not be disappointed.

    I had an 8 oz Ethiopian lattรฉ, and it was extremely balanced and delicious, this place serves nothing but coffee, and it's near perfect, location is a problem for tourists though

    A year later, still a great place. The Malawi coffee wasn't my favorite but the Colombian was great. I still have no clue why they don't provide Wifi there.

    Coffee is good. But if I want to add sugar to my coffee, then I should be aloud to! And for that fact I wonโ€™t return. Coffee snobbery at its finest.
