Baristart Coffee, Tras Street

Been hearing quite a bit about Baristart Coffee (65 Tras Street, tel : +65 6904 3168). About them coming from Sapporo. About them using the premium creamy milk from the Jersey cows in the farms of Biei in Hokkaido. About the higher fat content from the "Jersey milk" which produces a deeper flavour. About how those cows there makes up less than one per cent of the total cow population in Hokkaido numbering at only about 800. Hasn't all that marketing gotten us all intrigued already?

Baristart Coffee, cream puff

Cream puff's pretty good. Reminded me of those from Beard Papa. The puffs here were more crusty and sturdy.

The custard filling was made with their precious milk. That custard had a particular quality to the flavour - an aftertaste from the eggy sweetness that bordered on cheesiness. Nice.

Baristart Coffee, cappucino

Cappuccino was okay. Like many Japanese coffee joints here, strength of coffee isn't what they're known for. Apparently latte art was more important than cocoa. What was different about this cuppa was its smoothness which I attributed to the milk they used.
