2014 has barely begun, but KL can already welcome another destination that’s destined to draw coffee devotees in droves.

1 Brewmen

Jeremy Chan & his team at Brewmen seem attuned to the intense demands of this city’s caffeine fiends; customers can currently find beans here sourced from Singapore-based roasters like Papa Palheta & Dutch Colony Coffee, deepening our neighbour’s handprint on our cafés (see Sevencups & Urbean as examples of other outlets that searched south for supplies).

Coffee

Brewmen is trying to open in a low-key, nearly hush-hush manner, but it can’t fly under the radar for long, not when it offers temptations like filtered coffee (RM11, specs: Guatemalan single-origin, AeroPress-brewed) …

3 Brewmen

… a robustly respectable latte with full-bodied complexities (RM10 nett, Costa Rican beans from Dutch Colony Coffee) …

4 Brewmen

… plus light, low-acidity cold brew coffee (RM12, El Salvador beans; notice the Central American theme right now) …

5 Brewmen

… & the interesting red affogato (RM12), with Rooibos tea to replace the regular espresso shot.

6 Brewmen

Desserts

For food, Brewmen should start serving sandwiches this weekend; for now, customers can munch on the festive seasonal special of a Mandarin orange cupcake (RM8) .

7 Brewmen

… or a big chocolate brownie, warmed up to order & partnered with vanilla ice couple (RM12).

8 Brewmen

Scones are available too.

Final Thoughts

All in all, this place feels like one to watch this year. Expect hundreds of words to be written about & scores of photographs to be taken at Brewmen in the next several months.
