The Hub’s friendly founder Nicholas trained as a barista in Thailand & opened this place with his wife this month, serving an eye-raising range of coffee, from Pangkhon to Perci. Sure, you’ll find espressos, cappuccinos and lattes here, but the selection also includes speciality pour-overs in curiosity-piquing categories like ‘aggressive’, ‘ultra’ and ‘up in the air.’

On an obscure shop-row in Mutiara Damansara, roaster-barista Hadi recently fulfilled his long-gestating vision of launching a venue where he can interact with coffee enthusiasts & conduct cupping sessions in a ‘tasting lab’ setting. Hadi, whose inspiration & passion for caffeine were first seeded in Melbourne, epitomises the breed of baristas who are not only skilled & insightful but also capable of articulating information to customers with affable confidence. Come for Guatemalan-Colombian flat whites, Ethiopian long blacks & 48-hour cold brews.

The outlet, owned by three brothers & their sister, boasts a nice brew bar. Thirdwave has multiple explanations for its name; it’s an unmistakable reference to the international movement to produce top-flight coffee, but it’s also a sly nod to the heritage of the friendly Beh siblings _ they’re from Pangkor Island & they’re third-generation Malaysians.
