There is a new cafe in town recommended by a friend, Yalu. Specializing in espresso drinks, it has a unique name, The Coffee JAR or ‘呷珈琲’ in Chinese. They roast their own beans and make nice espresso-based coffee.
When I was doing 360 panorama shots at Stadthuys, inspired after Mark Zuckerberg shared a 360 spherical panorama shot as a new feature for Facebook, I passed by this shop nearby, just at Lorong Hang Jebat next to the parking of Hard Rock Cafe.
Yalu was there too. After talking to the nice couple owners, I was told that they just had their grand opening a day before.
I ordered a cup of latte, loved it.
Week after that, Fred invited us for a coffee. Then I suggested this new place to him and with Ah Ee, Chow Gui and Bear, we went to The Coffee JAR.
There were some Chinese oldies played at the cafe the with a classic player – cassette. It was in good condition and yes, with many cassettes available from their collection.
This reminded us of the good old days when having a cassette player was considered a luxury to many. That was time when we didn’t have those players like what we have now as stylish CD or MP3 players. Friends after the 90s might not know the use of a pencil to a cassette 🙂
Again, we enjoyed nice coffee over the classical songs over the afternoon.
Hopefully we can make a third visit soon 🙂
