Single Origin Coffee

I will never claim I am a coffee connoisseur, but I am definitely a coffee addict. I can't start my day or heck my day won't be complete without having coffee. Although I like my coffee cold more than lukewarm or hot. I visited almost every coffee shop I know and I love discovering new ones. I particularly like third wave coffee because their flavor is bolder and the taste stays longer. I've recently visited Single Origin Cafe in BGC High Street Central out of curiosity because one of my blogger friends said it's one of the cafes that offers quality coffee. 

Single-origin coffee is coffee grown within a single known geographic origin. Sometimes, this is a single farm, or a specific collection of beans from a single country. The name of the coffee is then usually the place it was grown to whatever degree available. Single-origins are viewed by some as a way to get a specific taste, and some independent coffee shops have found that this gives them a way to add value over large chains. Alternatively some people think that this is a way to artificially keep the price of coffee inflated.* 

Single Origin is the newest neighborhood cafe in BGC. They offer alot of choices; from breakfast dishes, brunch dishes, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, comfort food, coffee, wines, cocktails and other tasty drinks. I love how cozy their store is. The play of brown and other neutral hues used for the interiors is very relaxing to the eye and gives a chill atmosphere any time of the day. At night dim lights are perfect for intimate gatherings with friends or loved ones.

Iced Salted Caramel Latte - espresso poured over house-made caramel and textured milk topped with sea salt. I'm a fan of salted caramel and I love Single Origin's version because it wasn't so sweet and the distinctive taste of the single origin coffee did not lose its flavor. 

Hong Kong Milk Tea - An Assam Sewper Estate tea stepped in milk and sugar. Single Origin's version of the famous Hong Kong Milk Tea, for me, is just ok. I didn't really find it as something that I would order again and again when I visit this cafe. Either way, it was smooth, creamy and full-bodied.

Iced Valrhona Mocha - espresso with textured milk and Valrhona chocolate. I am a fan of any mocha drink because I love chocolate! I love the bitter-sweetness of this iced coffee mocha drink. Also, I'm impressed that they used Valrhona chocolate because it's one of the French premium chocolates and is a high-end brand. Both the flavor of the chocolate and the coffee were very distinct. 

Anchovies and Garlic Aioli Beer Dough Pizza - anchovies, garlic aioli, basil, olives and garlic confit. Most pepole don't like anchovies because it's too salty and the aroma isn't that pleasing. But I on the other hand have grown a fondness of it especially when it is on my pizza. I love the fusion of flavors in this pizza by Single Origin; just the right amount of saltiness for the anchovies and well-balanced with the garlic, olives and basil. Although the dough was super soaked in oil btw, kinda defeats the purpose of this supposedly healthy pizza variety. 

Cappuccino Lava Cake - baked molten Belgian dark chocolate with espresso served with side of vanilla ice cream. This was soooo good! You have to wait for a bit for this to be served because they make it fresh. The cake was super moist inside almost gooey. The combination of the hot chocolate cake with the cold vanilla ice cream was superb! This is definitely a must try. one of the best lava cakes I've tried so far.
