It is a good place for working or study in working-vacation. Quiet and good coffee, we also have a ice chocolate and was good. A lot of people go there to buy their house coffee.

The ice coffee is seriously lovely, and they will customize (less sugar/more sugar, more coffee, etc.). Also, in the case of the regular customers, they remember your particular tastes, and make it to fit. The service is good! They used to also have little delicacies that we would order religiously each week. Not sure how it is now or what... More

Hansa is all about the coffee. Locally grown, organic, and freshly made. There is little Sri Lankan coffee grown anymore, and this is one place to get it. The prices are great; about half those of the chain places, and the quality is much higher. You can also buy their coffee, either whole bean, or ground, in whichever of the... More

Compared to very high priced coffee shops this was very good coffee in a cosy place. Food was average and limited selection

We had a mini reunion with cousins and aunts. The iced coffee with ice cream was delicious. Nutella milkshake was great for the teenagers who went for seconds. The environment was homely and the prices were friendly for the quality of drinks offered.

This is one of the most reasonably priced coffee spots in Colombo. They serve good coffee at close to half the price of other places. The cafe is a little run down but that is part of the charm. The ac works, the wifi works and the coffee is good. The only downside is that they have only four tables.... More

This is my everyday coffee in Sri Lanka. Hansa is the best coffee for your machine as well as regular making. Nice blend and gives you the best taste for sure. If you buying Sri Lankan coffee to take home, this is the brand I would suggest.

While checking around for a place to have some coffee near where I was staying, I found this great coffee shop. They produce their own organic coffee which is shade grown and environmentally friendly in the hills of Sri Lanka. The owner makes her own brownies which she told me was a recipe handed down to her by her mother.... More

Iv tasted better coffee. But being a locally brewed coffee it tastes great too. The setting is very informal and the space very limited. The owner will ask you to try the last piece of a delicious homemade cake if you go in the evening. Try some from the menu if you will. The prices of food are not cheap... More

This tiny little coffee shop that feels a bit like you are sitting in someone's living room serves great organic, locally-grown coffee, delicious brownies and tasty toasties. Friendly staff, free wi-fi and heaps of magazines make this an ideal place to while away a few hours in peace and quiet.
