Invited review: Coffee Stain by Joseph, Publika

Thanks to Ivy and Nigel for the invitation to this coffee place.
It was previously known as Joseph @ Kitchen, and now they are Coffee Stain by Joseph.

I had visited them 3 times last year, which the first time was to attend coffee appreciation workshop by Cheryl Lee.
Since then I came back twice. What else? For coffee la. :)

Assorted cakes & desserts and bottled drinks to choose.

Their awards from Battle Of Baristas. 

Before the photo shooting session started, I had my dose of coffee first.
Cappuccino. Still lovely.

Aglio Olio & Steak (RM 28.90)

Lifestyle Breakfast (RM15.90),a well balanced breakfast to start the day.

Creamy Spicy Shrimp Pasta (RM 24.90)
The spaghetti cooked to al dente pairing with the creamy sauce, a thumb up from me. 

Chunky Tuna Sandwich (RM 14.90), for those who prefer seafood. 
And look at the generous portion of vegetables, healthy huh?

Caesar salad (RM 15.90) with dressing.

Coffee with macaroons.
Lovely right?

Mussels with Parmesan (RM 16.90)

Rib Fillet (RM 34.90)

Garlic Prawn (RM 15.90)

Olio Beef Salami (RM 22.90) 

Roasted Pumpkin Soup.
Loving this! I was like scooping it for so many times. Mind you that this is a sharing portion for food review. *blushing for being gluttonous*

Smoked Salmon Pasta (RM 25.90).
This is definitely a must try for salmon lovers, especially when it's smoked salmon.
My favourite~

Cheesy Garlic Bread (RM 8.90).
My suggestion for you to pair it with any homemade soup, does that sound awesome? :)

 Eye Fillet & Garlic Prawn (RM 39.90)

Salmon with Mussel Salsa (RM 32.90).
I'm not really keen on cooked salmon as they are often being overcooked and turned out very dry and chewy.
However, this one was tender and moisturized, just nice.
The specialty of this meal is the pairing sauce, which is made of tomato, mussel, prawn, onion and garlic.

Next up is about to stir up my excitement -coffee it is!

The barista showed us a few ways of preparing single origin coffee.
The first method is using siphon coffee maker.

The fire heating up the water at bottom and the water will go up to mix with coffee.
I read from about siphon coffee making, it wrote "Liquids defy gravity".
So scientific, right? :)
Barista is always enjoying this part -stir the mixture and smell.
After a while, remove the heat source and the coffee will slowly move down to the bottom part.

You can get clean liquid from siphon coffee making.
The coffee has a very strong smell and it's a little too bitter to my liking.

Next up was another round of coffee making using filter.
It's drip coffee or some called it pour over coffee.
This is one easy way to brew coffee, even at home.
This is how I have my coffee at home too other than using french press.

Using the same type of ground coffee, but you can get different taste from these 2 methods.
I prefer the one using filter with very clear taste, a little bit more acidic.

Thanks to Coffee Stain by Joseph for the wonderful food and coffee making demo.
It's been a pleasure to have you guys share with us about your story and passion.
Keep the good coffee spirit. :)

p/s: Nigel was there to assist them in food photography for this cafe.
