Two roasting machines in the cafe costing more than USD 20,000 each!
Medium light roasted beans are more complex in flavours as they possess a wonderful mix of floral and fruity notes, whereas dark roasts are bitter and relatively cheaper because it burns all of the 'defects' of the beans. Emphasizing on quality beans, Beans Depot usually goes for light roast to city roast for a real taste of 'coffee'.
If you're keen on being a barista or opening your own cafe, feel free to rent the bar and brew your own coffee! The bar is all yours.
Living up to its tagline of "Personalized Coffee Indulgence", customers can customize your cup of coffee based on their personal liking. Whether you love your coffee to be more fruity or smoky, the barista will surprise you with a cup of coffee that suits your preference.
Panama Geisha Esmeralda @ RM60
I am shocked to hear that my hand-brewed coffee costs RM60 a cup! In fact, it is very rare to be found elsewhere, and if other cafes do carry such beans, they usually price it around RM89 per cup.
Due to the very limited supply of this coffee, it becomes one of the world's most expensive and sought-after coffees. It is a very balanced cup of coffee with medium level of citrus acidity well-balanced by the sweet floral aroma of jasmine. Smooth and chocolatey on the palate, it doesn't feel like drinking 'coffee' at all!
Caramel macchiato is a common name we often hear, but how about replacing caramel with mollases, a type of natural sweetener extracted from sugar cane? The overall taste of the espresso and foamed milk is lifted by the lightly sweet and delicate cane flavour!
Love. Coffee. (爱。咖啡。)
Creativity is the main element of coffees here. Apart from the popular Coffee Cocktails (RM28) in which you can choose your own elements of alcohol, here we get to enjoy the owner's specialty coffee. Beautifully presented in distinctive layers with honey as the base, followed by coffee and milk foam, the glass is rimmed with fine chocolate powder. This sweet concoction definitely melts your heart away!
For those who are less adventurous, basic espresso-based coffee staples such as latte and long black are available at a price from RM7 to RM10.
Taiwanese Flower Tea
Non-coffee drinkers are also welcomed to gather here because this cafe serves premium flower tea where you can choose to combine up to 3 types of flower buds imported from Taiwan. Exuding delicate aroma with subtle sweetness, the lovely blend of Red Rose, Apple Flower and Violet Flower buds is good to soothe the mind and soul.
Lemongrass Red Tea With Mint @ RM10
For a instant pleasant cooling kick, do opt for the refreshing concoction of Thai-inspired red tea with mint leaves and lemongrass to wake up all the senses! Non-coffee beverages are pegged at affordable prices from RM8 to RM20.
Green Salad with Smoked Salmon @ RM22
Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo with Garlic Toast
Diced Mushroom Fried Rice with Chicken Skewers @ RM15
Roselle Crumble @ RM13
