I was invited through one of my twitter buddies, Yousef, to visit the newly opened Java Detour cafe at Sour Building in AlSalhiya area (Gotta LOVE twitter)! Well anyways… I accepted the invitation and headed to the cafe at 6:00PM! The place is INVITING! A very high ceiling coffee shop, and I am talking four or five floors high!
Not to mention that I was there during the time of the day where the sun was setting and the lightening was amazing! Very spacious and very clean, with added modern touches that gives a hip feel to the place – I LOVE!
Anyways… the place was FULL! Why? Because of the World Cup! Yeah!! Guys were there all gathered to watch the game… but as soon as I met Yousef, he took me to one of the tables at the back where I met the owner – Mr. Abdulrahman AlMutawa, his cousin, and son (very brilliant young man mashallah)! I was greeted warmly by them and we talked in general about coffee, smoothies, teas… well and food 😉 As soon as the match was over, the place get a bit emptier so I was able to snap some pictures for you 😉
They have a variety of drinks to choose from; coffees, teas, smoothies, and yummies… prices-wise? I believe it was very well priced specially when you compare with other coffee shops in town… and given the fact that they have many organic ingredients and fresh food!
Besides… they have MANY tumblers – many designs for different uses
Here is the screen TV
and with all the World Cup heat, Java Detour introduced seven special drinks for World Cup 2010
Gotta love the Kids Arena option (and the fact that they have size X Small cups)
I took away with me their X Small and X Large cups for you to see 😉 Oh and I used my BlackBerry as a scale 😛
I told Mr. Abdulrahman what kind of Coffee I like, black + aromatic + and rich, so he suggested their Signature Roast, the organic Ethiopian bean coffee <3…. fabulous suggestion! I am hooked!!! It goes along with how they described it “Never burnt, never over roasted”! I totally agree ❤
He asked me to pick whatever was there on the menu to try out… I was enjoying my Ethiopian brew so much and was fine with it, but he insisted, and he brought in many samples for me to try; Blended B&W (it also comes in over iced and hot) and Green Tea Tropical (iced)! He offered more, but I was so full!
Just to give you an idea of how the place look from the outside and how high the ceiling is
Anyways… I went back home with some goodies 😀
Remember when I posted that I was looking for a tumbler? Well… I came back home with, not one… not two… but FIVE tumblers – a gift from Java Detour 😀 😀 😀
Which I am planning to post about later 😉 Each one is different and unique 😀
Anyways… I had a great time at Jave Detour! Amazing coffee, spacious place, relaxing atmosphere, and awesome company! I am going to be a regular there 😉 I really want to try their food next time I go 🙂
The branch I went to is located in Salhiya, Sour Building – right next to Operah and their tel # is 22915444.
. They have two other branches; one in Julaia’a next to Seashell Resort and the other is in Bairaq Mall. They are opening one soon in Al Arjaan – Beda’a area!
I would like to take this opportunity to first thank Yousef, for this amazing introduction, and second to thank Mr. Abdulrahman for his generosity and hospitality! I had a wonderful time 🙂 Thank you!
