So when a family friend (a couple actually) started a food business - and they serves coffee, it was too hard to resist not to pay them a visit.
Coffee 5 Cups
“Coffee should be black as hell, strong as death, and as sweet as love”That is the caption used by the cosy cafe started by two family friend, Tan Jo Hann and his wife (A Japanese of Ainu indigenous), Kayo. Both of them can cook and they shared the same passion for social work touching and empowering the less fortunate to gain ground and betterment in their lives. The word "Fairtrade" would be an understatement here as they source their coffee beans from Bali - from the very planters that does it the old school way and the beans are all organically grown. I've seen the whole beans, there was no fancy packaging, just wholesome goodness.
If some of you wonder why the name Coffee 5 Cups, it was the notion that we can only take a maximum of 5 cups of coffee a day. The mascot of the cafe is the Hokkaido Bear - a scared animal to the Ainu.

Truly, Jo Hann and Kayo is inspirational for myself and wifey. We hope one day we will have a place like this of our own.
