So there're customers walk out because of the new menu design with no traditionally named coffee recipes (latte, capp, espresso...). Interesting.
Smitten. Hot choco.

Cuppa double ristretto. Lio too hot to start with.

Flat white. Switched the single espresso to double ristretto. Not really tasting the aroma but at least less bitterness. The bean was not really suitable for espresso, according to the barista: less flavour (less acidic too I suppose).
Good time nonetheless.
Update: The barista explained the large proportion of milk in flat white diluted the shot and its characteristics... Make sense.

Luncheon hour. Backstage. As usual.
Flat white today by a barista who was self-claimed amateur in latte art. And it seemed to be true :D

Get to get behind espresso machine, to see the barista made this for me. Cool people.

14 02 23 - Smitten's new coffee menu.

New menu with simplified coffee section: just black, or white (witness milk) in different sizes. Interesting concept behind:
It was designed to  prevent disagree from the customers come with different definition of all the fancy coffee names and recipes, but what is more ingenius this could turn out is, for those who knows what he/she wants, doesn't matter there's no specified menu; for those who don't really have an idea, the simple new menu works just fine.
