“Had the best coffee experience here. Good chat with the very knowledgeable barista and gained lots of insights about the farm, bean varieties and processes. Very different from getting a coffee at a cafe because you get to ask a lot of questions and there are no distractions from customers walking in and out. Felt like a total VIP coming into this studio.”
