Air Speciality Coffee Dubai: A cosy third-wave coffee gem in Umm Suqeim

Air Speciality Coffee Dubai is a delightfully cosy speciality coffee shop situated in the heart of Umm Suqeim. Join your friends at The Huntr as we take a closer look…

From the outside, Air features a minimal storefront and a huge (inviting) square window. Inside, this tiny little homegrown gem encompasses a clean, contemporary and minimal design aesthetic – which somehow makes the space feel bigger than it is. The coffee bar acts as an inviting stage from which to watch all of the wonderful coffee brewing and the wall-mounted seating area facing it is perfect for small groups or a solo coffee journey. Everything is done in a soothing mix of off white and tan and a huge leafy tree in the window adds a little green life. Whilst the natural sunlight seeping in from the huge square window plays beautifully over the shapes and objects (and makes for the best pictures).

The baristas at Air use homegrown roastery Speciality Batch. The Huntr tried a v60 (28AED), which was crafted using a single origin from Panama. It had a medium body with bright acidity, plus citrus notes with a hint of cocoa. Plus the Flat White (24AED), which was made using a single origin from Equador and featured a nutty and chocolatey flavour with a full body and balanced acidity.

Food-wise, Air currently has four desserts on the menu – chewy chocolate, pistachio rose, toffee date and cinnamon brioche. You can opt to add ice-cream to any of them for 7AED. The Huntr tried the Toffee Date (18AED), which was divine and worth every calorie. We are already planning our return to try the other three…
