Let yourself enrich all your senses by visiting the entire world of a rich, creamy and full bodied coffee. Each sense are a part of the greater symphony stimulating the intellect and imagination.
At about 80°C (176°F) the first aromas are released. A second aromatic wave comes after tasting, awakening your smell of freshly baked bread and chocolate and invokes your sensory of taste.
At around 65°C (149°F), the ideal temperature for tasting, an ideal coffee hangs on the delicate balance of sweet, bitter and acidic. Saviour the coffee pure at first, let your palate experience it in its natural form.
We literally feel food and drink on the tongue, making touch an important part of the culinary journey. We feel the body of the coffee in the consistency of its density and in its creme, the natural, lighter-brown layer on top that caresses the tongue: soft, velvety and creamy.
An electric environment, energetic barista, a grinder’s whir, the coffee machines temperament, the rattling of crockery and the constant debate of what is the best coffee: It is like the great Overtures of Beethoven. Your ears could be the first to enjoy the experience.
It is not only in the creme. Our coffees are presented in a glass, then watch how the creme melds with the whole body of the coffee. Enjoy the performance as the layers of each coffee engage with each other like an intoxicating dance.
