openlate Open Late chemist Coffee Chemists

If being a member of the ever-growing movement of per-cup brewing (where you watch your mug brew before your eyes) and a short list of baked goodies doesn’t seem like enough to justify Trabant's place on this list, know that this is a cheat-on-your-coffee-shop place in a serious coffee town. Try asking any of the extensively trained baristas about what you should get and grab a pen and paper because it's school time. Especially famous for their chai and Omanehene mocha, this no-nonsense place preaches the basics, and oh! hallelujah.
