“as a specialty coffee roaster it falls to us to help the coffee bean tell the story of it’s origin to the coffee drinker.”
i came across this quote awhile back on pinterest and it definitely sums up what ceresia is and stands for. it sums up so well that i don’t think i even need to continue to write more for this post. but no, i am going to anyway :P
ceresia coffee roaster is an underrated coffee shop located right across fuji supermarket in sukhumvit soi 33/1.
just a quick fyi, this entire alley is japan. it’s not the consulate or anything but like, it’s their land. they got japanese restaurants, japanese supermarket, japanese bakery, japanese bookshop, japanese golf shop, japanese cosmetic shop… ok you get the picture. BUT the odd thing here is that in the midst of this colonized alley heavily packed with japanese moms, there’s like this really popular british pub. also an irish pub. and ceresia. which is owned by a venezuelan family.
always greeted with ‘sawadeeka’ with a bright smile on her face. everyone here seems so genuine and kind :)
out of all, this has got to be my favourite. fazenda vale verde from brazil.
sweetness of sugar cane with apricot, milk chocolate and toffee notes, with a hint of apricot, rounded mouthfeel, mellow acidity, well balance.
they roast the beans themselves (and in small batches in order to maintain it’s signature flavours) and if i’m not mistaken they are one of the single origin coffee bean distributers to other cafes around bangkok as well. though the interior is nothing too fancy, you know if they have wood and brick, i’m all for it.
i feel like ceresia is one of the rare cafes in bangkok where they aren’t trying to draw customers with their photogenic interiors and good looking bad coffees but instead with real, authentic and excellent cup of coffee. coupled with excellent service.
i go grocery shopping at fuji supermarket every week. and when the day comes i purposely withhold my coffee intake before so that i can have my cup of joe here. yep, that’s how much i love it!
