Amazing but at a price
Imagine being in a high class cafe, all decked in gentlemen's suits and lady's corset dresses. Men wearing monocles and ladies with their frilly umbrella by their sides. A china plate full of biscuits placed on the table in front of them, they held conversations with one another, while sipping their cup of coffee mannerly while sticking little pinky finger up. That's what I had in mind when I stepped into Blue Mahoe Estate Caffe.
It was a different experience I had from grabbing a cuppa from Starbucks or Coffee Bean. The service was amazing with their staffs giving us their undivided attention, explaining to us the range of techniques used to brew coffee and the various coffee beans they offer. The coffee I had was amazing. How to tell if a cup of coffee is good? It kept me awake throughout the night!
But do keep in mind that a cuppa in this place is not cheap. Be prepared to pay a hefty sum to satisfy your inner coffee addiction. Overall, it is definitely a must-try-once for all coffee lovers out there.
Blue Mahoe Estate Caffe is unlike your normal coffee joint, that much was made clear to me and my friends. The staff’s attitude would put any Singapore’s restaurant’s staff to shame. However, the price of one cup of coffee was utterly mind-blowing – one cup is as cheap as $14!
Given the amount we were paying, they took the time to explain to us the different techniques of brewing, even going so far as to give us a choice in how we wanted to brew our coffee – siphon, French-pressed etc.
Yet I felt as though we have been cheated as the place was slightly clinical, and the staff were hungry sharks in the background waiting to ask us to buy some coffee bean. In retrospect, the well-brewed coffee makes up for all that discomfort; not forgetting the fact that I learnt something about brewing coffee that night.
You would only like it if you are truly passionate about coffee, otherwise, it is far better to head somewhere else for your coffee fix!
