Calling out coffee connoisseurs everywhere in C-Town, we found the ultimate spot for you and, let us tell you, they won’t disappoint. If you’ve been searching for a coffee shop that genuinely has a keen eye for detail when it comes to all your caffeine-related needs, Specialty Būn is the place for you.
Having opened in March of this year, the idea has been brewing for about two years, according to co-founder Omar Nazmi. “My brother and I started Cairo Coffee Collective as a subscription-based collective where people could sign up and get monthly deliveries of coffee, and then moved on to opening Specialty Būn,” said Nazmi to SceneEats. “We travelled to Ethiopia, Costa Rica, and Brazil for our coffee which is where all the coffee comes from and then it's roasted locally.”
Specialty Būn gets all their coffee from Cairo Coffee Collective, giving you an elite selection of coffee to accommodate your palette. Their Costa Rica blend ponders between strawberry and vanilla cream flavours while the Ethiopian blend swings between peach, apricot and marmalade. For all of you looking for a more ‘local’ flavour, the Sultan Hassan blend is tailored for just that, mixing three different blends and giving you a dark cherry flavour with a chocolate herb tobacco finish. We have no choice but to support tbh.
Bringing you excellence in every sip, Specialty Būn offers you something beyond just a product. They are reviving the art of coffee-making and bringing a fresh take on coffee with a sense of authenticity. Following suite, the shop's interior features a salt stone wall brought in all the way from Siwa for a truly Egyptian experience and a sense of authenticity.
Specialty Būn’s brewing hours are from 9 am to 9 pm and can be found in Arkan Plaza in Sheikh Zayed. Be sure to head on over for a cup of goodness to start your day, cause we definitely are.
