This might seem like an unlikely setting for a coffeehouse, but it exudes immense charm.
Nestled in the garden compound of Ampang's Yayasan Seni art gallery, Artisan provides a perfect retreat from the hustle of the city. Beans are roasted on site regularly, with opening hours between noon and 8pm daily, except Mondays.
In a cooler climate, it'd be nice to relax on the rattan and wooden chairs here, sipping coffee and munching on cakes while enjoying the calm, leafy view.
The mocha and short black turned out to be fragrant and full-bodied. Perhaps not the best beverages for a sweltering afternoon without air-conditioning, but they pack a potent punch.
