Inhabitating two levels, the ground floor is home to the cafe that serves coffees sourced from Central America and a simple but delicious menu that could have been lifted from a village diner in Honduras. The upper level is home to the coffee roasting laboratory where you can take part in coffee tastings every Friday at 10am, amongst the impressive coffee roasting equipment.
