KAFFE | Affogato x Sunny M Specialty Coffee & Tea x Richmond

Sunny M Specialty Coffee & Tea | Richmond, BC

Richmond—Of the many wonderful varieties of places and hole-in-the-wall joints you can find to visit in the airport-adjacent suburb, I have always felt there was a lack of independent coffee shops. So when I heard about Sunny M Specialty Coffee & Tea (originally starting out as a pop-up at local markets) nestled somewhere in Empire Centre, one of many Asian strip malls, I had to pay a visit.

As part of one of those long-running, sometimes novelty food dish competitions or promotions, there's the Coffee Drink Challenge, where places are tasked with coming up with a specialty-themed dish, currently on at selected participating cafés.

affoyoutiao (double shot of espresso poured over a crispy Chinese doughnut with vanilla ice cream)
Sunny M's entry is an Asian-themed twist on the Italian dessert classic of an affogato (typically, vanilla gelato "drowned" in or poured over a shot of espresso) with an added Chinese doughnut (aka "youtiao") here for good measure—just in time for Lunar New Year season and available only until February 6th.

dirty iced latte
Aside from the caffeinated dessert, their espresso-based coffee was delightful as I enjoyed a very punchy iced latte, "dirty" style—where the coffee and milk are separated for a sort of floating-type liquid appearance.

Sunny M's carefully selected and brewed coffee is a real treat and a nice find if you are ever in central Richmond.
