We were a little confused as to which road to turn into from the main road of Jalan Maarof in Bangsar - Waze said one thing while Maps said another. Anyways, we made it there and if your GPS tools fail to make it easier for you to find your way there, searching for New Straits Times Press may help a little. I said may, not will. And so, we were ecstatic when we finally found them.
With only street parking available, it would be less frustrating to come during non-office hours, as with the work crowd around, you would be considered really lucky if you managed to find a spot just outside. Silly me, I have not figured out if we were allowed to park inside, actually, but we did, anyway. At night mah, and the security guard not there also... hehe...
I have a thing for places that are recycled, as in places that support sustainability. Instead of letting leaving empty what used to be a paper-cutting facility of a printing works factory and storehouse, it had been turned into PULP by Singaporean coffee specialist, Papa Palheta.
There were some old paper machinery around, which cleverly blended into the furniture. It was obvious that they were serious about their coffee here, as they roast and purvey their own brand of coffee to coffee lovers in Malaysia and Singapore.
In fact, they are so serious that they care to educate the public on how to understand and appreciate the coffee that is being consumed. They organise workshops and drive a C-Platform, a forum whereby coffee professionals and enthusiasts alike get to hone their coffee-making skills.
In addition to selling coffee-related accessories, maintenance tools and equipment, they are also the distributor of the American Synesso, Italian Rocket Espresso and Irish Marco machines in Malaysia and Singapore.
The interior of PULP conveyed the simple message of "come and enjoy a cuppa". Nothing fancy and no wifi, they really made sure that everyone paid attention to their coffee.
Well, there were some nibbles, though. And when nibbles included cake, Cath and I would find hard to resist.
We had a cheesecake. Oh so fluffy little thing, it was. Why can't they make it slightly bigger? I can hear them retort with a why can't I order another one...
And there was no way on Earth that we were leaving the place without trying their coffee... smooth and just right for my liking.
