My only honest miff (to which I am NOT trying to bag anyone so correct me if I’m wrong) about visiting Sensory Lab was getting the cold shoulder service at the beginning by some pixie haircut hipster Hoo ha (I’ve never been treated like that before here!). The reason why I come back to establishments are not purely for the product but for the way I am treated. I’ve waited on tables before and my pet peeve was when customers would snap/click/whistle at me so I know what it’s like to be on the service end. And by the way, I never would do that to anyone because I like to wave/nod/smile to get their attention. It seemed like the word ‘hospitable’ wasn’t in this Hoo ha’s repertoire.

BUT it was forgivable when another and more pleasant, recognisable and knowledgeable staff member (Hello…nice inkage you have there!)  happily chatted to us about how the syphon process works, bean origins and the best way to enjoy and nail this!

I had Hario syphoned Kenya Ngandu Rutuma $5. It was kinda like they brewed it like a delicate cup of tea. But the difference was that the cooler it got, the sweeter it became! No milk or sugar involved though that brown powdery sugar found in pretty little serving bowls were very enticing.  The coffee flavour and buzz was still there yet it tasted like it had peaches and pineapples but not that sort of fruit punchy-ness. I felt like a lazy scientist who doesn’t use proper cooking equipment and only using my beakers, Bunsen burners and tweezers to concoct my arvo caffeine hit.

If you have a sore tummy and/or not feeling that well, have one of these syphon coffees because they are more gentler but still have the same flavour as regular espresso types.

5 out of 5

Chance of returning: Medium- High, due to the sheer convenience of its locality.
