Coffee Amo @ TTDI & Absolute Coffee Stop @ Subang

Coffee Amo unveiled its second branch this month, spreading its wings from KL's Chinatown to Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

This is one of TTDI's prettiest cafes; Coffee Amo retains much of the charm of its city outlet here, transplanting nostalgia-tinted artwork & furnishing into a calmer, leafier suburban setting where sunshine streams in from the shop-house's first-floor windows.

 Note though that Coffee Amo at Taman Tun is closed this week for the Aidilfitri holidays & will only reopen on August 4.

 The full range of coffee is available here; premium specialities include drip or syphon brews for Sumatra Mandheling, Hawaii Kona & Jamaica Blue Mountain beans (mostly between RM18 & RM27 in price), to be partnered with chicken pies & cakes.

 For cafe-hoppers who prefer an edgier-looking venue, here's a peek into Subang's new Absolute Coffee Stop, the psychedelic polar opposite of Coffee Amo.

 SS15's college student crowd might enjoy the younger-skewing, chilled-out vibe at this two-storey outlet.

 Cakes are available; the fruity 'Isabelle' seems to be one of the more popular options.

 5 Senses coffee forms the foundation for the beverages here (soy milk is offered as an option), served at the 'standard drinking temperature' of 55-60 degrees Celsius. Rooibos tea 'red espressos' are available too.

The increasingly ubiquitous, eternally desirable Smooshie has also carved a juicy presence at Absolute Coffee Stop.

  7. OMG, more coffee?! =O

    Isn't Absolute Coffee Stop that newly-opened shop facing the main road and having AmBank as its neighbor? I personally wouldn't mind patronizing it when I'm on campus again, but it's actually quite a long walking distance from Taylor's. =(

    1. Waverly: heheh, it's a flood of coffee hitting the klang valley these days :) i think you're probably right about absolute coffee's location. it's a bit tricky to find parking on that road, though we were thankful to have snatched one nearby during a weekend :)
