The coffee-addict in me found nirvana and the book-lover in me jumped with delight. The writer in me found inspiration and the photographer in me got a muse. Ahh … can you imagine me with a BIG grin on my face? 🙂
The reason behind this grin is an awesome place that I happened to get acquainted with on ‘the Pinkalicious Morning’ by ‘the Indian Trumpet’ here.
Spill the Bean – the cute, cosy and oh so creatively designed café in Sunset Mall, Jumeirah has become one of my most favourite places in the Sheikhland to spend an afternoon with girlies over a delicious cuppa or an evening with hubby with some yummy bites and brews or for that morning when I just want to have some me-time with my diary, my thoughts and rounds of some great coffee … ahen ahem … it’s an ardent coffee-fan talking here! *winks*
I love the way this café has been designed – it’s a café with a concept and whole lot of creativity oozing out of every corner. The colourful cushions, the comfy couches, the interesting décor-accessories – Spill the bean has an AHHH- MAZING feel.
And all you coffee-lovers out there, let me tell y’all, you are so going to thank me for telling you about this place – because this place serves the most delicious coffee and a whole variety of it.
Exciting, isn’t it? *smiles*
What’s even more interesting about this café is their association with ‘the Book-Shelter’ initiative whose aim is to encourage people to read. In today’s times, this is an appreciable effort when internet browsing over I-pads and smartphones is making reading just a never-materialising plan in the diary or a forgetful diary. And so to promote reading, they welcome book-donations of books that you have finished reading with and would like to pass on for others to read them. These books are available in the café then to be enjoyed over a cuppa.
Isn’t that really praise-worthy?
Also, this café is contributing to the ‘Go Green’ mission in a very unique way. There are available for sale some very cool bags which are made by a local artisan using the sack bags in which coffee is received. The amount received by the sale of these is then donated to an orphanage. What a great way to recycle the sack bags and adding a bigger meaning to the whole project by contributing towards a noble cause.
Look at these bags. Aren’t they screaming style? 🙂
So, all in all, Spill the bean is not just about coffee. This café is some delicious coffee with a meaning. Refreshing my spirits and topping up my energy – this is one of my favourite stops in the Sheikhland for some caffeine and great times with family/friends/self. And the icing on the cake is that it is a baby-friendly café.
Can’t wait for my next visit!
What about you? *smiles*
Until we speak next,
