The Better Beans

The Better Beans

From coffee beans to cup. Coffee brewing is an art and a science in its own right.

The White was medium-bodied and slightly acidic while the Iced Dirty Matcha definitely used good quality matcha powder. In one sip, I could taste the matcha that was full of earthy flavour. It was deliciously smooth, slightly creamy and bittersweet. The only rant is that the espresso taste was barely detectable.

The White was heavy medium-bodied and had a slight lingering bitter aftertaste.

They definitely stand out in a hawker setting as a coffee stall serving a mix of traditional and specialty coffee. As it's my first time, I tried the hot Latte that i felt was light to medium bodied. Worth it? Definitely in terms of coffee taste and at a wallet-friendly price.

Cafe Cartisan gives off an inviting ambience to have coffee and conversations. Going with my usual coffee fix, the cup of latte was medium-bodied and has a nutty afternote to it.

The cafe has specialty drinks sich as the Biscoff Latte and Ondeh Ondeh Latte. The Biscoff Latte ($7 for hot) had a sweet caramelised profile of the cookie butter and as I had requested for less sweet, it was a smooth, bittersweet cup of latte.

The hot White ($5.80) and iced White ($6.80 were perfect pairing with waffle and ice-cream.The hot White was robust and smooth with a nice mellow acidity to it.

The popular Iced Black Sesame Latte ($8) features a top layer of sesame cream. It was creamy with a subtle taste and fragrant of the black sesame, which could be stronger.

Their signature crowd favourite is made using cold-pressed raw coconut milk with three levels of sweetness to choose from - no syrup, less sweet and regular sweet; and size is fixed. Though I usually have my iced lattes without sugar, I went with the less sweet option to play it safe. And perhaps that's why I could barely taste the coffee nor the coconut flavour as it was just masked with sweetness. Slightly creamy and refreshing nonetheless.

The cup of joe was served with a cute rabbit latte art, was smooth and had a medium body and acidity to it.

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Ang Mo Kio Central, this neighbourhood cosy little cafe was a nice and quiet getaway on a Monday afternoon. The hot latte and cappuccino ($6 each) were light bodied with a nutty chocolatey afternote. And pairing coffee with some desserts is always a good idea. The Earl Grey Brownies and Hojicha Blondies (both $1.80 each) were from Edith Patisserie, of which this brownie flavour has been one of my favourites as it was rich and fudgy with a fragrant hint of earl grey.

The cafe latte had a nice creamy buttery undertone to it from the butterscotch syrup. I like that it wasn't overly sweet nor strong that covered the coffee taste.

Opted for Guerilla No.2 that is the store's most versatile espresso blend. Despite the coffee temperature being hotter than what was expected, the coffee was strong yet smooth with a distinctive chocolatey sweetness to it and light acidity. A nice place to seatback and relax with a cuppa under a warm and natural backdrop with soft lightings.
