“More than your average cup of Joe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

We tried Savaya at La Encantada the other day, after having passed it by a number of times. In fact, after a recent breakfast at one of our favorite restaurants, Jaspers, we headed over to Le Buzz when the "we need good coffee" bug hit us. Savaya at this location is a small shop where they craft each cup. The prices are higher than you would expect... and so is the octane. In general, my mocha was excellent, and I'll come back if I need a latte and I'm in the neighborhood. It's limited selection and lack of ambiance would not make it a primary destination... and it is certainly superior to Starbucks.

“Best Ginger Soy Chai Latte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

This is one of those coffee/tea shops that are hidden in a strip mall and not so visible from the street. However, once you've had their warm lingering ginger chai latte, you know you can't go anywhere else for your chai fix. Savaya roasts their own coffee beans and even hold batista classes for the interested. The green tea leaves are whole and a big scoop is used to steep your cup. The cafe latte I had here was delish. If you want your coffee and tea done right, give Savaya a try. They have wifi and tables and seats for you to linger in as well. Ps...they do take a few minutes longer to pour their cup, but the wait is worth it.

“Spectacularly Great Coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

These people LOVE coffee. We watched them prepare their ice-water drip - a unique cold water coffee that gives you all the flavor and none of the bite. They roast their own gourmet beans, and make a perfect latte. And on top of that the store is decorated with panache.

“New location. Same great coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

They recently added a new location at La Encantada mall, and the coffee is still great. Very small store, so you probably will have to take your delicious cup of caffeine with you elsewhere to enjoy.
