Filter Steampunk

$5.00 ยท 2 Reviews

If you're lucky enough to be working near International Plaza, you've undoubtedly spotted hordes of thirsty office workers making a coffee pit stop at this hole-in-the-wall shop. The tiny coffee-only store by the folks behind Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters has a limited menu that is placed so high on the wall, even those across the corridor can see it clearly. Go for the 8 oz Flat White ($4.50) and don't be afraid to ask the barista to recommend you a well-balanced blend of coffee beans (if available, always opt for the dark matter). For the lactose intolerant, you'd to be happy to know that they use Bonsoy! Feeling like a lighter, filtered option? Get the beautifully subtle Filter Steampunk ($5), coffee extracted through a filter using a vacuum of air, and watch the bubbling action happen right in front of you!
