From farm to bar, The Workshop serves up sunshine and comfort. The first thing you notice walking into The Workshop is their big, beautiful windows. Light pours in generously from outside, fully illuminating the activity in the bar situated in the middle of the cafe. This 360 degree bar setup allows baristas to easily interact with customers from any side of the room and in turn, gives curious customers a closer look into how their coffee is prepared.
But more than just the seating layout or interiors, what truly makes The Workshop a pleasurable cafe to visit is their cheerful and accommodating crew. Our visit was made more interesting because the baristas made sure to engage us in conversation. While preparing our pour-overs, he told us a little about their coffees.
The “hero” coffee was proudly grown in a place called Son’s Farm. The farm is located in Dalat, the central highlands in Southern Vietnam which is considered to be the “land of eternal spring.” Somehow, the mere sound of that gives us a delightful picture of sunny skies, lush fields and cool air. It’s a beautiful terrior for sweet coffee. That goes for the cafe as well.
