“Take the spiral stairs
Up into suspended space
Light trails on coffee.”
– a ThokohMakan haiku
[Pork-free] Curio is a newly-minted cafe off Jalan Ipoh – small, cozy with a countertop that reminds me of kuih talam (Mmm… kuih).
We love the space – bright with limited space for quiet conversations with friends over cuppa.
Menu (and tables) are limited as well with focus on espresso-based coffee and as well as Curio-us concoctions such as Skyfall and Black Soda.
A micro-roaster sits in a room at the back – the owners are still tinkering with the machine, but freshly roasted beans should be ready soon
A small selection of cakes and pastries keeps you company – we enjoyed our slice of Pecan Pie. We had a nice chat with the cordial couple – on what drives them to create and curate this space.
And they were too kind to give us a small sample of Guatemalan beans for our French press at home.
(Count the words starting with C in this post. How many could you find?)
