Deep Coffee

Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars

Don’t be surprised: A regular coffee at Deep Coffee is about the same size as the grande cup at Starbucks. And true to their name, they have Korea's first 1-liter take out cup. With its moderate prices and tasty drinks, Deep Coffee has a lot of fans. And somehow, they manage to maintain quality as well: For their drip coffee, they use the Elektra Belle Epoque Espresso machine from Italy—only three of these beauties exist in Korea.

The compact, round coffee machine with three nozzels is optimal for continuous extraction of coffee with consistent taste in a cramped space like Deep Coffee's. In addition to coffee, a wide range of cocktails and “ade” style beverages are available and you can enjoy a vin chaud in the winter. The café’s interior was hand painted by the owner himself and is packed with coffee cups decorated by customers and small knick-knacks received as gifts. People crowd the area in front of the small cafe, either sitting on plastic patio chairs or standing until late in the morning.

Recently, a performance space was created in the basement beneath the cafe. This space is available to rent out for small black box theater productions, musical performances or movie screenings.
