Maven Coffee Store
By Agnes Aui
Hidden in the quiet neighbourhood of Shamelin Star Residence is Maven Coffee Store, a small yet cosy space filled with light wooden interior that instantly becomes the ideal place to spend your work-from-home day.
As soon as you enter the cafe, the calming scent of caffeine will awaken and delight the coffee fanatic in you as you scan through various coffee beans for sale on a shelf above your head. Once you’ve settled in, the first thing you should order is the filter coffee, which in our opinion is the best you could get from cafes that specialise in coffee. We were served the one from Kenya which exudes a slightly acidic and almost sweet note, ideal for light coffee drinkers.
We then tried the Hojicha latte, made using matcha from Niko Neko. The latte was creamy, not too overpowering and had a roasty, almost smoky ending. It was simply delicious and is the perfect early morning option for non-caffeine lovers.
As for food, we had the creamy chicken pasta featuring pasta in the cafe’s signature white sauce. The dish was bursting with flavours and included juicy chicken and fresh tomatoes which added the perfect texture overall.
Of course, a cafe visit isn’t complete without dessert. And we got to try Maven Coffee Store’s bestseller, the red velvet cake. Just by appearance, we could tell that the cake was moist and stunningly layered with cream cheese. Every bite was light, airy and melted in our mouths. The cake was also not too sweet, making it a lovely guilt-free sweet treat.
