Comments from our coffee experts
SJ They have a unique light roast coffee that has a hint of sweetness to it. They received high scores from an American coffee review site and used to export their specialty coffees to the U.S. as well.
David G. We It's one of the few places in Seoul where you can taste rare coffees such as Panama Geisha. This coffee shop that is located in the less crowded area of Gwanghwamun is definitely worthy of our praise.
Cho Won-jin Here you can taste coffee that farmers have taken the best care of. Their peaceful building, which is a renovated, old hanok, adds to the coffee’s flavor.
It first opened in 2002 right in front of Seoul National University and later moved here in 2013. They focus on the basics of coffee and use good materials for everything—from raw coffee beans to the handcrafted sauces. They offer customers a rare type of specialty coffee that costs up to 20,000 won a cup as well as blended tea and freshly baked cakes.
