4Mano Caffe - (Taipei)

This is the branch under Regent Hotel 台北晶華酒店,  and this complex has so many great dessert shops.   4Mano Caffe has 2 things which attracted me to visit.   First of all,  they make a Mochi infused Waffle.  2ndly,  some of their coffee baristas have won local awards as well as representing Taiwan in the World Barista Championship.   Their coffees are actually supplied by HAAYA’S Coffee.



Pretty counter and Very Friendly staff -
She was so accommodative,  I nearly asked for her number!




Single Origin Coffees -
Hand Dripped here,  with coffees supplied by HAAYA’S Coffee. 




Mochi infused Waffles with Cream,  Ice Cream and Blueberries -
This was quite QQ chewy,  which seems to be a Taiwanese thing.  The coincidence is that waffles in Belgium and Holland are also quite ‘chewy’ but more dense.  This was also buttery and definitely very enjoyable.   Beats the Coffee Alley and Melange Café version IMO.   ~  8.5/10



Tanzania,  Blackburn Estate ‘Hand Dripped’ Coffee -
Those who drink Square Miles will know this is one of their regularly featured coffees there.  In comparison,  this one here was a little roasty and less cherry like,  but more like bitter chocolate.  On the spot I didn’t think much of this seemingly over-extracted coffee.   But compared to the coffees I got from HAAYA’S which supplies here,  I actually liked this cup better.  ~  6/10
