A unique hybrid of conventional white cold brew and espresso-based latte, KIMMIK’s Cold Brew Latte tops cold milk with a super-concentrated cold brew made from Thai coffee beans. For something beyond a usual affogato, get the Mat-zukito (short for Matcha Adzuki Affogato). Combining frothy matcha with a scoop of creamy adzuki bean ice-cream, this twist on affogato is earthy, sweet and immensely satisfying.

KIMMIK constantly experiments with new seasonal specials for their menu, with one of their latest R&Ds being the Valentine’s Day special Bitter-sweet. Made with candied orange and an espresso shot, this hot drink starts off robust and pleasantly bitter, before gradually getting sweeter over time as the candied orange melds with the coffee. Just like a relationship, as they say.
