“great coffee, people, and story”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

one of the best coffee shop in CM. after talking to Lee (co-founder) while visiting akha ama coffee, I can see his passion for not only just coffee but also people behind the scene who were there since the beginning of this place. If you're looking for a great organic fair-trade coffee with great staffs in CM, I highly recommend this place to you.

A very nice place with perfect coffee. Very relaxed. And try the cakes. My favorite is the "mango lover".

“Nice ambiance to relax or work in”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I had some pastries and coffee here with my fiancé. We we starving, so if you want a big breakfast like we did, don't go here. It's just pastries/desserts. We ordered the carrot cake, banana chocolate chip muffin, mango pie, apple pie and chocolate cake. The mango and apple were my favorites. All tasted good, but nothing out of this world. I asked for milk for my hot Americano and it was good. They drew a creative flower design in my fiances cappuccino so that made it awesome. The people there were helpful, the breeze coming through the porch is nice. I could see spending hours here if you are writing a book or working on business. For what we got, it was very pricey, we had been eating full, filling breakfasts elsewhere and paid way less.
