Orange is the new black.
Rocket Coffeebar WINNER!
The place: Scandinavian-style cafe serving up killer brunch and drinks.
The taste: You’ll get a whiff of cinnamon, a tang of orange juice, a sweet note from honey and a faint bitter taste from coffee in one sip from this promising-looking cup, garnished with an orange slice, cinnamon stick and rosemary.
Verdict: 10s, 10s, 10s across the board!
Roots RUNNER UP!
The place: Known for using 100 percent domestic beans blended and brewed in house.
The taste: Hands-down, Roots nailed it with that thick, fresh orange slice. The fizzy brew is very refreshing and leaves a nice coating on the tip of your tongue, but the coffee could be a tad stronger.
Verdict: We’re rooting for you.
The place: Go-to coffee stand for Sathorn office workers.
The taste: Neck and neck with Roots, except Coffeelism’s version is a little bit richer. The citrus taste and aroma is there, but they seem to have forgotten the actual slice of fruit.
Verdict: Houdini act.
School Coffee x Warm Batch Roasters
The taste: Except for the tired-looking orange slice, we don’t get much citrus action here, although the coffee itself is enjoyable.
The Crystal House
The taste: Minute Maid-like orange juice with a chemical smell that forces the coffee into the background. And, yet again, no orange slice!
