Blue Bottle Coffee Company
Time Out says
The popular American coffee brand Blue Bottle Coffee Co. opens its first Hong Kong branch by the Mid-Levels Escalator. The new cafe marks the Oakland-based company’s latest international venture in East Asia, after openings over recent years in Tokyo, Seoul, and Taipei.
This highly-anticipated Hong Kong store will be a two-story affair, with the ground floor, providing espresso drinks, iced beverages, and a curated selection of seasonal pastries to pair with Blue Bottle’s brewed-to-order goodness. Upstairs will be decidedly chilled out, as coffeeholics will be able to sit back in leather-and-wood chairs and savour some of the brand’s iconic pour-over.
Founded in 2002, not only does Blue Bottle focus on using single-origin beans, it also works directly with farmers to ensure sustainable sources and aims for all of the chain’s stateside shops to achieve zero waste by the end of 2020.
