We hopped to AlleyLab Cafe in Taman Molek. This is one of my favourite cafes in JB because like minded coffee geeks gravitate to this place. Coffee lovers are the nicest people 😄

Roaster-barista-owner Elvin is one of the most passionate, coffee obsessed persons I have ever met 😄 His enthusiasm for all things Arabica is infectious 😄 All coffees served at AlleyLab are personally roasted by Elvin.

Elvin runs AlleyLab with a young team with equal devotion for the magical bean. From left to right: Dowson, Elvin, Eenie and Jeffer.

AlleyLab's decor is minimalist chic with comfortable furnishings.

I like this space for quiet time with a good book and great coffee.

At AlleyLab, the focus is on excellent coffee. At AlleyLab, it is coffee first ☕

Elvin is a coffee evangelist and he loves sharing his obsession with his customers. Elvin puts a lot of thought and effort to help his customers understand and appreciate coffee.

I like the way Elvin divided his coffee into fruity, floral and nutty, so it is easy to make my choices based on my preferences. Personally, I like nutty coffees but opted to try floral coffee today for learning purpose.

From the menu, we can see that prices at AlleyLab are very competitive.

Each coffee served at AlleyLab comes with a little note with basic facts about the origin, process, roast and flavours. This little extra, de-mystifies coffee for novices like me. So, with every cup of coffee at AlleyLab, I learn a little bit more. I like this! 😄

This floral note coffee is Ethiopian Konga from the Yigracheffe region. The cherries are naturally sun dried. The beans are medium roasted. The coffee have orange blossom and apricot flavour.

I had also a café brûlée. On the latte, Elvin sprinkled sugar which he later caramelised with a blow torch. It's coffee and sweet dessert all at once.

We had a few of AlleyLab's artisanal sandwiches to go with the coffees.

The sandwiches are made with crispy light toasts and various fillings. Simple and just nice to enjoy with great coffee.

👉 AlleyLab is a no frills place for coffee lovers from novices to connoisseurs. Elvin, a roaster and barista has an infectious coffee obsession which he is eager to spread to his customers 😄 AlleyLab is more an expression of Elvin's love affair with coffee than just another cafe.

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
