The Maker Cafe
Coffee enthusiast are all around and cafe are opening everywhere like mushroom grown after the rain, spreading every corner of the city. Starbucks is just something pretty common among the people these days. Despite the coffee bean they are famous with, branding is definitely their greatest selling point.
This newly open cafe which I had made a few attempt to drop by but failed because it was fully occupied. Not surprised since it is newly open just for a week. Trying my luck again tonight and I got myself a table for 4. Wasn't so bad after all to be alone. But then after I was changed to a table for 2 which was totally fine for me because I was pre-informed at the cashier counter when I made my ordered.
Entering the habitat with a great coffee aroma that welcomes you, just simply amused. A cafe that makes me feel so much like home. It's packed, but do ignore the crowd. Pretend you can't hear them. Jazz into your dream world with their soothing music if you are alone. Or grab a book from their shelf which you find worth reading even a page or two. Chit chat with your friends and make yourself at home like nobody business if you are hanging around in a group. That's what the owner intended to let their customer feels. A place like home.
I enter into this small sanctuary and I feel comfortable. The first intention I had in mind doesn't seems to be different from others. Just to check it out, drop by and see how does this cafe looks and operate. The main concern when people enter, the first thing that hits their mind? "How much does a coffee in such cafe would cost?" A cup of coffee that range about RM 8 to RM 13 average definitely price at reasonable rank despite the high quality ingredients that they used to brew their coffee. I always fancy and supportive to local cafe rather than franchise outlets because they are simply unique!
Sitting alone at the corner with my cup of hot Caramel, trying to clear my disturbing mind, a lady with her denim shirt and green apron approached me. That's the same lady who actually served me at the cashier counter and her name is Marlene. A friendly smile on her face started our conversation. She offered herself to sit down and of course I agreed and the pleasure is mine.
A conversation simply just starts with this global language/sign, a smile. She is a partner of the cafe and she designed the whole interior from scratch. I know how it feels to get nothing to something. That satisfaction you feel at the end of the day are simply indescribable. I am impressed and amazed (*I'm easily amazed and satisfied thou) because the combination of textiles and wood with hanging light bulbs just blend in together like coffee with milo that blends out Neslo. I know it sounds a little incompatible but that's the best description that I can think of. Black wall decoration hanging on the white wall are inspirational quotes. I do not know how many of you been there realised but somehow it is quite motivating.
They may not have a scroll of varieties hanging on their wall menu but they promised to serve you better when something is written up there. I am not promoting or receiving any monetary terms for writing this. It is all out of my own perception.You may have different thoughts in mind from what I had experienced. I am just sharing what I feel and I love sharing my thoughts. You may disagree, you may comment or just send them your feedback.
