So happy to have an extra day off in the week, and managed to tie down the girlfriend for a quick catch up. She has been busy lately, new job, new boyfriend, etc. Time is precious at this stage in life. We were in the vicinity of Buona Vista and she, the cafe-chaser and coffee junkie, suggested we go pay Revolution Coffee a visit. I didn't know that the place had existed since more than a year ago!
Located in the secluded part of Portsdown Road, once you see a standalone building called Infinite Studios, you are at the right place. Revolution Coffee looks quite like many other indie coffee joints, industrial look, lots of upcycling, etc. Their own house coffee bean that day was a single origin, and the taste, hopefully in a simple to understand explanation, leans towards the Papa Palheta type, which is quite easy and smooth, light fragrance. They also offer a blend by Smitten Coffee, which we didn't try.
Apparently they have a famous banana cake but we weren't in the mood for additional calories so perhaps another time with the Man in tow.
