For those seeking a morning pep, one East Hagatna coffee shop is brewing up as memorable as their name.
With a specialty in cold brew and nitro coffee, Coffee Slut creates frothy, smooth and creamy drinks with faster rates of caffeine absorption, according to co-owner Justin Benavente.
“We keg all of our coffee and teas and juices, so we’re a coffee bar, and we do shots,” said Benavente.
The cold brew comes in either medium or dark roast and is brewed for 24-hours. If a customer orders nitro coffee, the drink is infused with nitrogen and pressurized in a keg.
Benavente and his two partners, Melchor Manibusan and Kyle Aguon, launched the brand last year. In 2016, they were located in Takoyaki Cafe Tama, but the cafe was only
open during lunch and mornings. Benavente and his two partners hoped to cover morning, lunch, and dinner. A year later, they relocated to East Hagatna, across from Burger King and Crust Pizzeria.
The coffee shop offers customers a beautiful sunrise and sunset view by the beach.
“A lot of people like to hang out here because it has a nice environment, beautiful view, and good coffee, tea, and juice,” said Benavente.
When visiting Coffee Slut during lunch, customers have the option to purchase food from trucks on the outer deck. On Wednesdays after 6 pm, adults are also invited to celebrate coffee and socialize with friends.
“We try to create a really different environment when you come into our shop,” said Benavente. “Our passion is really the coffee.”
Not sure what to order? Staff members can help you choose one of the cleverly-named options.
“When we get first timers, we have them try the orgy,” Benavente said. “We do single beans, which would be Brazil, Columbia, Kenya, or we can mix them all together to produce our espresso.”
