“Kafelaku Coffee in Taipa - Really bad coffee drinks”
Review of Kafe Laku

Kafe Laku
Ranked #42 of 56 Coffee & Tea in Macau
Restaurant details
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Kafelaku Coffee House is located on the very busy Rua du Cunha in Taipa Village and sells Lewak (civet) bean coffee drinks. Lewak beans can produce some very good coffee but it does come at a price. Sadly, what we experienced at Kafelaka were two very bad coffee drinks.

During our visit, we sampled the Lewak Americano (MOP58) which smelt and tasted burnt and extremely bitter if not borderline sour. Not sure if the beans had been burned during the roasting process, if they were just of a very poor quality or what, but this was just an awful cup of coffee (rating 1 of 5). Adding sugar did little to salvage the drink, which we ended up discarding in nearby bin. We just couldn't drink it.

We also tried the coffee smoothie drink (MOP36) that was surprisingly, just as bad. This drink had the right colour but there was just a hint of coffee, masked by a milky, blended curd like drink. The taste was off, the texture was off, another very bad drink (rating 1.5 of 5) that we couldn't finish.

Overall, we were surprised at how bad the coffee drinks were when we visited Kafalaka Coffee House. Macau does have some nice coffee ships. Kafelaku Coffee House doesn't seem to be one of them based on our experience here recently.

For nice (and much cheaper) coffee, we recommend the THS Honolulu Cafe which has a wide variety of international coffee blends. They have a shop right around the corner in Taipa Village. For the best coffee drinks in Macau, our present favourite is Terra Coffee House on St. Augustine Square in the Historic City Centre.
