Surprised to find the cafe filled to the brim on a weekday morning, and even more astonished at the quality of their coffee! With beans roasted in-house, the flat white ($5) is robust with a strong, well rounded malty flavour and substantial caffeine boost.

No complaints for this price point - the hojicha latte ($2.90) is a tad grainy and thin, but its flavour comes through. Wish it was served hot because this was lukewarm at best!

Expected more from their coffee, given the origins of the cafe. The white ($5) was smooth and nutty but too milky for me! The filter coffees might fare better but they’re priced steeply.

Previously tried their white with dark matter blend, so I thought to try their black ($5) with equilibrium this time! It comprises beans from Santa Rosa, Konga and Ethiopia, resulting in a mild fruity acidity and light mouthfeel. Their filter coffees ($6) are quite popular!

I usually keep a wide berth from milky coffees, but Maxi’s cereal milk latte ($7.50) is an indulgence that I keep coming back for. So much so that I haven’t tried any of their other options! Coffee is smooth, albeit mild, with the rich flavour of milk infused with cereal.

The latte ($5) suffices if you’re just looking for a shot of caffeine, but I would otherwise give this a miss. It was far too milky with nary a hint of flavour!

Opted to upsize my cappuccino ($6 + $1) for a stronger double ristretto. Using beans from PPP coffee, the drink was smooth and well-rounded with a touch of acidity. The ambience is certainly something to behold, but not quite worth the higher price point when you can essentially get the same coffee at other outlets! Will try their nitro cold brew during my next visit.

Was hesitant about trying their food after the many negative reviews online, but gave their flat white ($6+) a shot. Expected much more from this new concept store by Craftsmen - the coffee was smooth but milky, with a forgettable flavour.

Surprised to find that it was full house on a weekday afternoon! Had to wait for awhile before being seated - staff do not strictly enforce their 45 min limit. Opted for a white ($5) using dark matter colombian beans - wished it was served a touch hotter, but I was very impressed with the bold nutty flavour and the creamy mouthfeel!

The ratio of foam to milk is a little off in the cappuccino ($5) but the drink has a good, strong and slightly bitter taste to the coffee. Hojicha latte ($5.50) has a great nutty finish! Also tried the iced latte ($5) on another occasion - very smooth and easily my favourite here.

Expected much much more from this specialty shop - the latte ($5) was far too milky, overwhelming the coffee.

An unexpected find!! The coffee here is superb. Their beans are supplied by 2 degrees north, with a choice between Brazilian and Ethiopian. Opted for the darker roast and both drinks had a clean strong flavour. Wished the flat white ($5) came a little hotter but otherwise it was massive and very well rounded! Iced black ($5.50) is pricey but a popular choice.
