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.
