We continue to enjoy the boom in the craft coffee scene as more and more indie coffee joints are popping up locally, some in the most random locations. And talk about being random, if you think Papa Palheta already takes the cake, Pause @ Dominic Khoo’s 28th Fevrier will surely set you to think again.
Set in an English townhouse look-alike building, surrounded by commercial warehouses in Bukit Merah, Pause shares this aesthetic white space called Dominic Khoo’s 28th Fevrier with bespoke shoemaker Edwin Neo of Ed Et El and fashion designer Kevin Seah.
The head barista at Pause is Haryanto Soemito who got some coaching from Cuppachoice.
On the day of visit, their special houseblend and a single origin were on offer. Personally, I prefer the Guatemala beans over the blend of Brazil and Sumatra beans. The former one was lovely nutty and struck a fine balance with the milk, while the blend was a little more complex, less rich, but densely creamy that went down very well with the deletable almond stick.
While visiting Pause, you don't just sit on their Flexiblelove Chairs. Move about the premises, and you will soon discover a whole world of wonders just behind the scene.
