Named after the four elements in which a good cup of coffee must excel, BAFA is a specialty coffee house where coffee enthusiasts can relish the Body, Aroma, Flavor and Aftertaste of the perfect brew. Here, instead of a drink menu, customers choose from various types of coffee beans written on a blackboard above the bar. Hailing from as far away as Brazil, Tanzania, Hawaii and Papua New Guinea, all the beans are selected according to the standards of the Japanese LCF (Leader Coffee Family) system and meticulously hand-ground.

BAFA's young proprietor/founder, a co-owner with her husband, already has 20 years experience in the coffee industry, thanks to an early introduction at age 14 when she underwent strict training from a Japanese company in Taiwan looking to cultivate coffee connoisseurs. She spent four years alone learning to smell and taste coffee before she began roasting beans.

"It's more important that the coffee beans are good than the method of roasting," Mrs. Wu explains. "Why is a mother's cooking so good? It's not because she's a professional chef. She buys the freshest ingredients and prepares the food with love."
