This modern sports bar/café sits inside the Garden Shopping Centre high rise on the first (i.e., upper) floor with a number of booths, stools, and chairs & tables. Using a three-group, bright green WEGA at the bar, they pull shots of Vienna Gold from Gourmet Coffee Roasters. It's filled high in the brightly striped ceramic cup. Even so, it has an ok-looking, congealed medium brown crema. The body is surprisingly decent, and it has a smooth, rounded flavor profile of spice and some honey. R10.
