There are more and more coffee houses and they are growing at a rapid pace around the Klang Valley. We heard a lot about a Korean coffee house which has just opened at Solaris Mont Kiara, called Caffebene. When we arrived that afternoon, it was overcrowded with people. There is even a line of people queuing for table. As we do not want to waste too much time waiting, we went to Cosans Coffee which is located right next to Caffebene.
Apparently, Cosans Coffee has also just opened here at Solaris Mont Kiara. Compared to Caffebene, Cosans Coffee is the normal coffee which you may get almost everywhere in town. They are more classy compared to Caffebene. In my own personal opinion, Caffebene overdo their coffee by adding too much “toppings” that it pulls all the attention, especially the taste of their coffee away. Coffee is good on its own and I personally think that less is better.
We ordered Cosans Coffee Latte, Mocha and Caramel Latte, all priced at RM13 each. The price are not inclusive of service tax, and therefore each cup costs about RM 14.30. Taste wise, it was actually quite good. But since I am spoilt with choice and since I have had the opportunity of tasting Espresso Lab’s coffee, I would say that Espresso Lab’s coffee are much more fragrant.
Ultimately, I think whether your coffee taste good or not depends very much on the coffee beans and the barista. I am not sure Cosans Coffee uses which coffee, but I do know that Espresso Lab uses premium coffee beans. For the premium price that I am paying, I would definitely expect something premium. On this point, it is stated on their website that they uses “100% premium roasted coffee”. But I have no clue where their coffee beans comes from.
Overall, our coffee is good but there are better ones elsewhere. I do not want to compare this to Caffebene, because I think they are both in a different league all together. So let me know what you think about Cosans Coffee. Do drop me a comment below.
