Full Of Beans (Handcrafted Specialty Coffee),Penang

Coffee is almost everyone's cup of tea. It is mine as well but I'm not addicted to it.  I have come to acquire a taste for coffee since I started working in 'American Dream Cafe' in One Stop, Penang (no longer in operation) when I was in secondary school(high school). My ex-boss will bring out this scientific looking thing that drips coffee from a rounded cylinder with coffee beans inside. Starbucks coffee beans was what he was serving certain customers who has a pleasure of a good brewed coffee. No matter where you are in the world, you will have no problem finding a coffee shop right at the streets or an air conditioned cafes or Starbucks.

Have an experience of handcrafted specialty coffee at Full of Beans at Straits Quay , Penang. Recently I went to have a cup of coffee, Brazillian Santos (RM19) is what I had. A complimentary drink actually. Well, the barista was carefully concocting my brew with all the laboratory look-alike equipment, forgive me on the scientific terms because it all just reminds me of my school science lab. What's nice about Brazillian Santos is firstly it's not bitter without sugar however with a cube of sugar that was given, it was more enjoyable to drink. I'm truly a novice all these years when it comes to understanding the different coffee types. I have seen various ways people make coffee (besides the 3 in 1 packets ofcourse) and how they know what temperature would make a good coffee, what equipment to brew different types of coffee beans yet there is a desire to know more. Well I think it would be great to go for the coffee tasting at Full of Beans. See more information at the last picture.
