OCD(Obsessive Coffee Disorder) @ WA Cafe, Pavilion KL


''Hey let's go for coffee?'' 
'No' is never my answer. 
Caffeine is like fuel to me. It keeps me going. 

WA cafe is a unique café concept that is derived from a busy coffee shop in Japan. 
Supervising the store is Master Barista Masa Aoki from Tokyo who also is one of the judges for the Malaysia Barista Championship. WA Café is determine to serves authentic Japanese coffee with its beans imported from Japanese roaster.

WA cafe is not limited with one type of single origin beans, they will normally rotate their beans depending on the availability of the best beans from the roaster.  Amongst are Arabica, Brazil Santos, Sumatra and Columbia.


Magic - RM12
1 shot of espresso and 3 portion of silky milk.

Everyone will surely ask how did the name come about.
I was told that Magic taste silkier compared to latte because
the main difference of Magic and the ordinary Latte is the frothing and steaming method of the milk. 
Expert or people who is hard to please should be able to tell the difference, and I am not one of them. 


Piccolo - RM8 
1 shot espresso and 2 steamed milk
I personally love piccolo because I get to taste the balance flavour of both espresso and the milk.


Chocolate Affogato / Caramel Affogato/ Matcha Affogato - RM 14 each
Basic Affogato/ RM12


The affogato here pleases everyone easily. 
The vanilla ice cream they are using are made from scratch everyday to preserve freshness. 
Chocolate and Caramel Affogato looks totally the same from the appearance as the sauce that differs them are hidden underneath the ice cream avalanche. 

If you are a caffeine lover, you will be very pleased with the sharp and potent bittersweet pick-me-up espresso, and the soft and melt-in-your-mouth fresh vanilla ice cream; if you're not, there are alternative such as the Matcha Affogato. The Matcha powder they used here are top-notch imported powder from Japan which do not carry any astringent/ puckering taste. 


 'Dirty'  - RM 13
(1 espresso + 3 milk)

Another catchy name that successfully caught my attention. 

It is advisable to NOT stir the drink throughout. 
At the initial stage, you get to taste the potent espresso that's floating atop, with minimal taste of the milk; As time goes by, the intense and acute colour espresso will slowly glide down, gilding the perimeter of the glass jar and when you drink it this time, you will get a ratio of 50:50 of the espresso and the milk; Lastly,you will obtain a robust-milky and descending espresso note at the end of the drink. 


You can also request for soy milk with a surcharge of RM1. 


 

Caramel Nut Cheesecake
Banana Butterscotch Cheesecake
Chocolate Mousse Cake
Uji Matcha Red Bean Mille Crepe

Matcha Chocolate Latte - RM 11

Not a fan of coffee? Fret not.
There are also cakes and caffeine-free beverages to cheer you up. 
After tasting all cakes above, I've concluded that WA cafe certainly serve one of the best cheesecakes in KL. The Caramel Nut Cheesecake was my favourite. Rich, creamy yet not cloyingly sweet; the nuts that are added into it definitely score more points than other desserts that I had. Yum. 

A stealthy shot of the well-known barista in WA cafe - Mr.Masa.

Everybody should believe in something, and I believe that I will have another cup of coffee later, tomorrow, the day after tomorrow.. and tomorrow...
