Coffee Talk is one of the restaurants at Thavorn Palm Beach Resort. It is a quaint coffee shop with some really cool decor. It truly made us feel like we were back in New York. I couldn’t resist the Matcha latte! It was creamy, flavorful and a perfect pick me up, packed with caffeine. We also tried the Thai Tea, iced with tea ice cubes and sweetened with condensed milk. This was a huge treat and something I still dream about.
The coffee selection here is extensive and they have what they call “Siphon coffee”. This was a really cool experience. The heat the water by flame and it rises up into the top of the siphon. Once brewed, the coffee filters back down into the bottom of the glass, ready to be served. The coffee winds up being very smooth and flavorful, it does not burn or have a harsh aftertaste. We gave it an accent by adding some dōTERRA cinnamon bark oil!! This is definitely one of the best ways to brew coffee and it is also so cool to watch.
For dessert, we enjoyed the matcha lava cake with chocolate ice cream. It was ooey and gooey, warm in the center and so yummy. We also had the Bannoffee cake, which was a banana and coffee cake in one. This was the winner and took the prize out of the two desserts.
We enjoyed the sweets and treats at Coffee Talk and loved the vibe of the little shop. Its a great place to relax, listen to great music and enjoy a nice pick me up at any time of the day. It is right by the beach, so it is really convenient. We definitely recommend Coffee Talk to anyone visiting Karon Beach, Phuket.
