I read about this place online as one of the best 25 coffee shops in the world. So no pressure there, then! It was surprisingly quiet when I entered, but the staff were knowledgeable and friendly, so I opted for a filter coffee and prepared to be amazed. The coffee was served at my table in a small ceramic drip-filter and hot water was poured with some ceremony as the Sumatra blend of the day was explained to me clearly and fuss-free. And, yes, it's damn good. They recommend no milk or sugar and I agree that it's the way to go. Next time I'll go mad and order a double espresso. Apparently, they also offer courses in home-barista skills and other coffee related activities to small groups. Maybe worth checking out?
