Minerva opened in ‘75 and is the oldest coffee shop in the area. Sinchon attracts young students from the nearby universities, but the charm of Minerva is that you’ll see people of all ages, even older generations, who probably have been regulars since their college days. The shop was started 41 years ago by a Yonsei University graduate school coffee club and earned great success when they sold siphon coffee, made by using a vacuum coffee pot that extracts the coffee using vapor pressure. Customers would wait for hours outside to get a taste of this special brew. Its popularity may have died down, but you can still taste their excellent hand-dripped and siphoned coffee that remains the same
