The CBD coffee connoisseurs are never short of craft coffee options with the high concentration of indie coffee joints brewing in the area. Jewel Coffee, located at One Shenton may not be the newest in town, but is probably the only local café that solely focuses on single origin beans for all their coffee drinks.
Taking care of your cuppa are veteran barista Shinhao who has years of experience under his belt, and the stunning La Marzocco Strada from Italy. Not forgetting the Macro Über Boiler which allows precise brewing perfection. On the other hand, you may also choose a manual brewing style if you have the time, be it the Chemex, V-60 dripper or a syphon.
Here I had my latte ($5.8) made from Lintong, from Sumatra. It was an intense body with nice nutty note and a lingering herbally sweet aftertaste. Oh man, I never knew single origin could make such an interesting cup until I took that sip. Oh, did I mention that all espresso-based drinks here are double-shot?
The café currently has over 20 beans, rotated on a weekly basis. Surely this is something worth you frequent checking back for. Tasting classes are conducted on some of the not-so-busy weekends to promote higher coffee appreciations. Be sure to stay tuned to their facebook page for event updates.
