Following the success of its kiosk in Taikoo Li North and roastery inside M Woods Longfusi, %Arabica has opened a third location at Taikoo Li South, between Moleskine Cafe and Page One. Offering the same drink menu, the pristine interior is definitely on-brand, as well: minimalistic with light grey and blinding white. Professional coffee machines emblazoned with the %Arabica logo line the front counter, and the tall built-in shelf nearby is backlit with white light, highlighting the various merchandise on offer. Decorations are limited to a few strategically placed slim trees and a wiry world map. There are a handful of tables at the back, and counter seating across the floor-to-ceiling window up front; and a low square white bench smack dab in the center for when the queue gets a bit long – as they do. At least now you don’t have to brave the cold wind for your hip cuppa in Sanlitun.
