Suspension is extremely popular and for good reason. With groovy reggae music playing, great local artwork on the walls and amazing coffee, it is sublime. The back courtyard is a secret hideaway shaded by green trees, it's a lovely way to spend an hour or two on a sunny afternoon.
If I were to go to coffee in Europe, this is how I would imagine it to be. With vintage plush lounges and mismatched furniture it sets a really unique, artistic mood. They have a small kitchen and a breakfast and lunch menu, but I am yet to try their food. Did I mention they have free wifi?
Of course I always expect Suspension coffee to be exceptional and it always is! For a mere $2.50 I ordered a double espresso. It was deep and robust, smooth and had a delightful zing as it went down. Perfection in a cup. I really loved the teaspoon it came with, it is this attention to detail that puts the finishing touches on the whole experience. At home, I brew my coffee in a plunger strong and black and Suspension is my local supplier for my coffee grounds. I always buy the Single Origin, a different one each time. At the moment I'm drinking Costa Rica, but I also recommend the Organic Peru: 250g for about $12.50, so worth it!
