When a coffee shop offers matcha lattes, Lalani & Co organic teas and some serious desserts, you know you’re on to a winner. Can we just talk about dessert for a moment… The peanut butter and salted chocolate slice is intense, rich and fortunately, not too sweet. The rice krispies base serves as a surprise reminder of my childhood on this wonderful island. Nobody grows up in UK without practically putting their ear in the cereal bowl waiting for it to start popping. Wild times!
The ginger and stout cake is the stuff dreams are made off. It reminds me of the Jamaican ginger cake I used to eat at my great aunt’s house as a child. The texture of both the sponge and the icing is on point but it’s just a tad too sweet. A little less sugar and I think it would be utter perfection. This goes really great with the Oolong tea. Speaking of tea, each pot comes with refills so get the best out of the tea leaves. The temperature of the water and brewing time varies according to the type of tea. The iced tea I had was cold brewed – fresh, complex and soothing flavours for a warm day.
Here at Curators Coffee, I get to sip my latte in surrounded by appealing décor: white walls, natural light, matching furniture and gallery style exhibitions. Yes, I’ve pretty much moved in.
