Cafe Rider @ Dubai
August 19, 2016
Propelled by founders and baristas from around the globe, including South Africa, Russia and the Philippines, Cafe Rider reflects Dubai's remarkably diverse urban population. This cavernous venue promises photo opportunities galore for social media enthusiasts, since it is set in a warehouse-like showroom filled with American-made motorcycles.
The coffee, which employs U.S.-roasted beans, is excellent - fun combos with funky monikers like 'Oil Drip' that make use of elements like orange juice & house-made caramel, resulting in beverages with perky nuances that perfectly complement the coffee. 'The Alpine' is a refreshing drink to counter Dubai's perpetual heat, with a scoop of pine nuts that adds texture to the coffee. It makes sense now that Cafe Rider's head barista represented the UAE in the 2015 World Barista Championship.
