Full of Beans, Straits Quay, Penang
Back to Penang again, this time I am with husband who just return from oversea business trip. We attended our gang youngest member's wedding and have a short yet great gathering with all QQ gang members. The next day, Sunday, we catch up with husband's buddy Jaspher. We had a hearty Hokkien Mee at Tanjung Bungah Market, then heading to Straits Quay for a cup of good coffee, recommended by Jaspher.
The menu at the front door tells you everything about their coffees. Full of Beans specialized in "Hand crafted coffee" with unplugged brewing methods such as Syphon, Hand Drip, Ice Drip, Aero Press and Hand Presso. The coffee beans are imported from American region, African region, Asian region & Oceania region including blends and seasonal coffee beans. Price range starts from RM9.90 to RM45.00 per cup. Tea is also available beside coffee.
Casual and cozy ambiance, with sofa and arm chairs, make it a great place to enjoy a cup of good coffee. Love their outdoor seating which is facing the seafront marina and pier. We were here early as soon as the door open, so we are able to sit at this nice corner indoor overlooking the pier!
If you like to see how the baristas brewing your coffee, these counter seating will be the perfect place to be. Those on shelves are brewing equipment, accessories and variety of coffee beans for sale.
Assorted cake slices e.g.: Cheese Cake, Mille Crepe, Classic Cake and etc is available for desserts. I am kind of happy when I saw the fresh milk that they are using is my favorite brand. It's pretty rare to see that as most cafes are using imported milk. I brewed my own coffee at home daily, so far I only using this brand and it is the only fresh milk I find it taste the best with my home-brew coffee. Furthermore, it is made in Malaysia.
Jaspher get us each a cup of Blue Mountain, served with almond biscotti. The coffee is so smooth, and aromatic, I normally don't go for black coffee. But today, I just want to enjoy this cup of coffee without any milk. Price is unknown since it was a treat from Jaspher.

Nothing more leisure than having a cup of great coffee, looking at the seafront with drizzling weather, while the men were talking. A moment & place that I couldn't get in the city.
