This cafe offers estate-grown coffee beans from around the world and is filled with the rich fragrances of roasted coffee as regular customers--mainly from the surrounding neighborhood and LINE friends--gather and interact in its cozy premises. Like all good coffee houses, this is a spot for friends to connect over the rich brews, including hot and cold coffees, frothy lattes and cappuccinos. Among the single-origin coffees served here are varieties like Ethiopia Sidamo, with a slightly fruity aroma that soothes the throat as it goes down. Passionate coffee maker and owner Lu Jie-ting personally prepares savory pour-over coffees with consistent, professional methods that enable customers to fully appreciate the coffees' original smooth flavors. Coffees, from Americano to Latte, are NT$50 to NT$150 per cup and customers can also purchase recommended mixed specialty coffee beans, starting from NT$380/pound.
