Founded by three Emirati guys, PDL is a celebration of cycling and serves up some of the city’s best specialty coffee in a bike-themed space complete with an adjacent barbershop (complete with reclining leather armchairs, computer games and a pool table). Dennis will be expertly demonstrating how you can up your coffee game at home using simple techniques and specialty coffee hacks.
