Revealing Wola’s sacred secret…
Slick and polished, there’s maybe little at face value to set Sacred Mill aside from the other high-gloss coffee stops found in Warsaw’s business district. Through a heavy glass door visitors enter a space that’s minimal in size and design – lots of dark, hard surfaces offset by whites and charcoal colors and a few green succulents. As a look, it’s clean and intelligent and entirely fitting with the area.
But you ain’t here for the design. Hell no. The winner here is coffee, and coffee as roasted by Sacred Mill since February of this year. Championing fair trade, arrive with high expectations for these will be met by a personable barista that’s equally happy to babble in tongues with coffee geeks, or demystify its merits with specialty novices.
Focused but not limited to African coffees, find this crew following Nordic roasting practice which, it transpires, means light roasted coffees of consistent quality. “We believe it brings out the full flavor potential of each coffee,” they say. But things get even more interesting with their seasonal offers.
Keen to play about, drop in for an oat-based latte served with “an in-house blend of warming winter spices and finished with a dash of cayenne pepper”. Vegetarian sandwiches and a series of homemade cakes top off the what’s a well-rounded experience.
