Epiphany Coffee @ Ara Damansara & My Espresso @ Subang

Cured by caffeine: Eureka moments might be challenging to come by without a cup of coffee within reach, a robust reason to visit bean-bountiful cafes like Epiphany at Oasis Ara Damansara & My Espresso in USJ Subang Jaya.

Epiphany uses Rubra beans for cappuccinos, lattes & ristrettos that can be partnered with this cafe's apple strudels, blueberry scones, coconut lemon bars, carrot cakes & chocolate muffins.
Aug. 16 Edit: Epiphany now uses beans by Malaysian specialty roaster Flightless Mule.

We order affogatos wherever we find them. And usually, we love them.

Epiphany is also a tobacco specialist, selling flavored tobacco & rolling paper. This cafe has three separate spaces: an air-conditioned non-smoking interior, another air-conditioned area for smokers & an alfresco section.

Books on Epiphany's shelves include Murakami novels that'll take multiple visits to finish.

Serious coffee-seekers might also make the effort to visit MyEspresso, hidden on a shop-house first floor in one of Subang's most far-flung neighborhoods.

My Espresso uses Highlander coffee for its brews. Very pleasant indeed.

Can't resist the affogato here either, piled with generous scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Coffee-making equipment is available for sale at MyEspresso, as well as mugs & saucers.

Plenty of books to browse through too (customers can plunge into the entire LOTR saga here), or play UNO perhaps.

Bonus coffee stop, (much) closer to our workplace: EspressoLab at Pavilion, one of numerous EspressoLabs popping up in malls across the Klang Valley.

Have some iced latte with monin syrup or lick up every bit of the affogato (RM14).
