Ok, so I am currently in Cambodia in Phnom Penh and there is this coffee place that is very good. I was here last year too and they remembered me when I walked in. It is called Tarrazu. The owner buys green coffee and roasts it in the front of his shop. It is pretty much the only "high-quality" coffee place here. They offer many different types of beans for pour-over. Admittedly I wasn't hot on the idea of pourover as you may know, but this cup is pretty damn good. It is a Yirgacheffe, and it took the barista much longer to prepare than I have encountered in the states. This doesn't seem too light, or watery and the yield is a bit smaller than what I have typically gotten in the states. The off chance anybody is in Phnom Penh definitely come here. There are other coffee places like Brown Coffee and Costa, which are fine, but nothing to write home about. The only downside to this place is it is very expensive, even by New York standards. The small pourover I got was $4 which, for here is very, very expensive. The upside is it is great and you get $1 refills!
