Into the old quarter of Charoen Krung arrives a Danish coffee shop’s first Thai outpost.
From the second largest Danish city of Aarhus, coffee roastery and specialty cafe La Cabra opened Tuesday to serve cafe-hoppers and lovers.
Situated in Talad Noi next to FooJohn jazz bar, La Cabra features a handsome slow bar primed for a range of high-quality caffeinated concoctions. Beyond the usual suspects like americanos (from THB120) and espressos (from THB110). The real show stoppers here, though, are the hand-brewed coffee which features single-origin beans sourced from Kenya and Ethiopia.
Best known for a simple, Nordic approach to coffee and flavorful, crisp, and bright roasts, La Cabra’s philosophy is “Brighter is Better,” and the flavors caffeine lovers get are just that — clean, light, and pleasantly bright.
The venue’s highlights include three Ethiopian roasts and one Kenyan, including the honey-processed Sheka Honey (THB200) with taste notes of peach, honey and blueberry; the washed process Bensa Logita (THB200), which boasts a clean jasmine aroma and subtle hints of honey and peach; the carbonic maceration processed Bensa Logita (THB280), a heavy-bodied brew with intense fruit notes of cantaloupe, lychee and boysenberry; and the Kenyan washed process Kiamugumo (THB220), a fresh, tea-like drink brimming with caramel and red currant notes.
Cafe hoppers not so keen on coffee can opt for the homemade lemon soda (THB90), yuzu honey soda (THB90) and matcha latte (THB140).
Before you leave, be sure to check out the coffee beans and merchandise for sale. Check out Brazilian Irmaos Manzoli pulped natural process beans (THB670 for 250 gram) or hand-glazed coffee cups (THB1,200).
