Review of Cubita by shortie on Fri, 14 Sep 2007:

I have pronounced this the best coffee in Wellington, and I am usually a coffee loyalty card tart. This man doesn't need a loyalty card. It is run by a Cuban so nothing faux Cuba about this, with Havana roastery coffee at present, friendly staff, Havana street frescoes, and dancing on Sunday evenings (which I haven't been to). The joint is small, just round the corner from Courtenay Place (its actually on Taranaki St) no kitchen but a reasonable array of fresh all-day pastries, calzones and cakes. But this man Arkan knows how to make good coffee, and is passionate about it. I have started walking right across town just for this, and have tried about three or four of his coffee types, though being 'Shortie, I like it strong and black. But the flat white was just right too.
