Chiang Mai

 With a menu dedicated to soy milk – ‘slow coffee’ bar Yellow Crafts Café – opted out of using a high-tech espresso machine and instead makes each shot by hand, using the likes of an Aeropress. Expect an Americano to be done with the hand-drip method, thereby producing a cup of aromatic coffee per order. Their cold brew requires an overnight drip process that slowly extracts the coffee with cold water. Run by soy milk enthusiasts whose soybeans are supplied from a trusted farm in Chiang Mai, this small café serves vegan-friendly caffeine drinks and more. Their signature ‘soy milk coffee’ uses their blend of beans especially selected and roasted to withstand soy milk’s natural coagulation keeping the drink smooth; there’s also a ‘soy milk chocolate’ and a pure homemade soy milk available hot or cold and served with their own soy cookies. Dairy is also available as an option and can be found in the  many baked items available, such as brownies and biscotti. The place is decked out with cheerful spots for photo opportunities, hence it’s a hangout for selfie-crazed teens in the area.
