These days, the latest fad seems to be fashion boutiques that double up as cafés. Usually this is no more than an excuse to serve half-hearted caffè lattes to would-be fashionistas. At One Ounce for Onion though, the coffee lovers may find a cup that bucks the trend.
The café is a collaboration between niche, multi-brand store Onion and local coffee roaster Brave Roasters. Ekameth “Tay” Wipvasutti, who runs Brave Roasters, first got into coffee when he was studying music at Mahidol University.
Wipvasutti shares, “I went to Chiang Mai in search of good coffee and trained under the owner of Happy Espresso. There, I learned how water ratios and timing affect the flavour profile of espresso coffee. I continued my education by ordering beans from famous roasters in the US and UK.”
After realising most beans available locally were dark roasts, Wipvasutti decided to start roasting his own last year. His single origin beans are decidedly home-grown such as a chocolaty washed coffee from Pa-Mieng Doi Saket, Chiang Mai. Light with berry notes and a spicy aftertaste, this is not a brew one would find everywhere.
Besides filtered coffee, Wipvasutti also makes excellent espresso, perhaps the best I’ve had in Bangkok, which is no mean feat. Syrupy with a lively acidity, just the way I like it. Is this a fashionable espresso? I wouldn’t know, but it sure is really good coffee.
位於曼谷的One Ounce for Onion就是那麼一家咖啡館(Brave Roasters)+服裝店(Onion)的組合。
