Arise Coffe Roasters
Arise Coffee RoastersCuisine: American
Arise is where the baristas go to have their cuppa when off-duty but this tiny shop still manages to retain a neighbourhood feel to it. It is a nice, unpretentious place to catch up on neighbourhood goings-on while enjoying a good cup of joe.
Thanks to owner Taiju Hayashi, a friendly and experienced roaster. He was been roasting for 16 years, some of that time with the Cream of the Crop coffee, before opening his own shop. Little surprise then that the coffee is good. The house specialty is the Alfredo Diaz Princesa from the Dominican Republic, a nice and fruity brew, but there are many other beans to try.
