Being a puritan of sorts, when I have coffee I always prefer to have it hot. So when presented with a hot or cold option of enjoying Tree Monkey’s signature Spice Coffee, I insisted on ‘hot’ despite the balmy weather.
Slightly infused with cloves, star anise and cardamoms, the coffee packed a punch without being overwhelmingly pungent. The musky flavours are moderated by a generous dollop of thick condensed milk which makes for a pleasant and leisurely cuppa - even on a hot day.
