A few months ago, Clarence and I went to Tree Monk Coffee Roaster located at Lintas Jaya Uptownship, the same area as OUM and Boulevard Hypermall in Kepayan Bypass. I first found out about this café through my students as they know me well how much I love coffee.
The Interior of Tree Monk café
The interior of the café was nice and it has the hipster vibe to it although I have to say it didn’t wow me as much as The Workshop café (Click here to read about The Workshop café). However I love how the coffee mugs are being kept nicely in rows in the barista area. They also have a blackboard hanged on the wall and the menus are handwritten. I also love how they display their coffee beans, which they have these small compartments where the coffee bean is in and covered with a clear glass so that the customer able to see the coffee beans. There’s also a few fake trees inside to fit the name of the café and I really like how they look.
Coffee beans selections
I must say Tree Monk café have quite a number of variety in terms of coffee beans selections. They have coffee beans as far from African region like Kenya and also Costa Rica, South America. I guess they roast the coffee beans on their own because they have a coffee roasting machine in the café. Besides that, they also have a variety of cakes on display too.
I had the Brewed Coffee in a syphon with Lime Cake. Clarence had the Iced Mocha Latte with Chocolate Tart. Both of out drinks taste fine but we were a tad bit disappointed with our dessert as the Lime Cake is very dry and the tart is so hard.
Tree Monk café is a nice place to hangout if you’re in the Kepayan area. Or go give the café a go if you just want to visit a new one. So to those who live in Putatan or Kepayan area, check the place out! You can visit the café’s Instagram and Facebook to check them out!
