Cafe x Bica

Cafe x Bica has emerged as a popular cafe-hopping spot on social media, thanks to its refined ambience that takes you out of the city's usual hustle and bustle.

Housed in an exquisite design showroom near Ramsden Park, every detail here is carefully thought out, from the furniture selections to the cohesive colour scheme.

Cafe x Bica's stunning aesthetic is thanks to the collaboration between upscale design firm Elviano and furniture brand Atriani, which the design room enclosing the cafe is centred around.

cafe bica torontoWe begin our coffee tasting journey with the barrel-aged Kenya 99 ($8.20), a personal favourite of owner Pooya Sayyadi. 

Presented in a double walled glass, this brew releases the scents of red wine, enveloped with hints of whiskey, rum, and grape. Upon tasting, it unfolded fruity notes with a delicate floral finish.

Highlighting a medium level of acidity, it showcases flavours of stone fruits like peach and black cherry, leaving a subtle sweetness that lingers on the palate.

This cup boasts a well-balanced aftertaste without going excessively acidic or bold, accompanied by the delightful notes of vanilla and berries.
