Sevencups, Kuala Lumpur

Categories Café Hop

Most cafés in Kuala Lumpur are divided into two schools of décor – the industrial, grungy Brooklyn-Melbourne look and a cozier—if slightly cluttered—homey Taipei-Tokyo ambiance. Sevencups, hidden away in the brick blocks of Empire Damansara, bucks the trend by giving off a cool, minimalist Scandinavian aura that attracts coffee lovers who enjoys some peace and quiet too.

The sparkly owner Eve Von made her bones as a protégé of Top Brew Coffee Bar barista champion JH Yee and learned about café operations at Artisan Roast HQ. The latter means she is meticulous about running her own shop while the former is a reason for espresso lovers to celebrate as she pulls a mean shot. In fact, black is her favourite way of drinking coffee, as she happily informs us from our visit.


Sevencups uses beans from Singaporean roaster Nylon Coffee. Enjoy your cuppa surrounded by pinewood floors and serene blue walls.

在Empire Damansara里,隱藏了這麼一家咖啡館;
湛藍和白色為主的墻壁,配上松木家具;
簡潔明亮,帶著濃濃的斯堪的纳维亚式风格。
再加上寧靜的環境,讓人有種遠離喧囂的靜謐。
據說老闆是Top Brew的得意門生,
然後再從Artisan Roast學得咖啡館的運作和經營。
記得第一次去拜訪時,她和我們說她最愛的是濃縮咖啡espresso。
老實說我還挺訝異的,我以為一般上女生會比較喜歡加奶的咖啡呢。
難怪比起她的奶式咖啡,她所拉的espresso更讓我留下深刻的印象。
