Life is too short for bad coffee…

Coffea Coffee, Bangsar

Coffea Coffee has got to be the latest place for coffee hipsters to hang out at. The place is usually packed after 8. If you’re not a fan of the buzz and noises, you’d be better off hitting this spot before the night crowd kicks in.

They serve only two types of coffee; Maestro or Madonna. Maestro is the American blend, which is a darker blend. My favourite has got to be Madonna, simply because it reminds me of Australian coffee; always packed with an acidic punch to it.

They also have my favourite chai latte. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but its definitely mine. It’s hard to find places that serve up decent chai latte. Most of the time they are really diluted, or the chai powder’s balance of spice is just wrong.

If you feel like having something non caffeinated, try out their Peanut Butter Latte. It’s one of their signature drinks. Subtle and light hints of caramel-ish peanut butter. If the weather’s too hot to bear, have a Berry Nana Smoothie!

*To provide you with a rough idea of where this place is, it’s on the same row as La Bodega, Yeast and Antipodean.

The first thought of my every weekend mornings is this, where should we have brunch?

and Yeast would always lie at the back of my mind. It has become a place that I visit almost every weekend.

Sometimes when I feel like something light in the morning, I’d just grab an almond croissant with OJ or their sinful Valrhona hot chocolate. Other days when I feel like an absolute glutton, I’d go all out to indulge in these heavyweight items.

Calamansi Tart

My favourite dessert in KL, their calamansi tart. I love sour desserts, and this has got to be the best sour one I’ve ever had!

On non brunch related events, I was glad that I took Roseanne, Jacob and Yi Shen here for dinner. It was my first time having dinner here and thankfully it was the right place for our mini Melbourne reunion.

So here you go, one of my favourite places in Bangsar. Make sure you grab some takeaway almond croissants for your loved ones!
