Everyone knows TOMS; a for-profit company that began with providing a new pair of shoes to an impoverished child for every pair purchased. Now they have expanded to other product with the same philosophy of “One for One” (which is the company slogan): glasses for restoring eyesight, bags to stop bullying, and now coffee to provide water for those without. Having started with a café in Hannam-dong last July through September, Hanam Starfield is home to TOMS Asia’s first permanent café. Fair trade coffee beans from India, Honduras, Colombia, etc. roasted in Korea’s 502 Roasters create for a fresh and complex notes of some really good coffee. Every cup of coffee sold means more clean drinking water for those in need in countries like Guatemala, Honduras, Peru, Rwanda and Malawi among others. The signature menu of this wonderful café is the Café Momiji and T-Sparkling soft drink. Café Momiji (Japanese for foliage), a dark coffee with milk poured gracefully down (like autumn leaves) into the deep black tea, is a complicated yet delicate drink. TOMS café offers 2 types of blend, the dark ‘Carpe Diem” or the light ‘Summit.’ Spoil yourself to some in house baked desserts, beautifully curated coffee and maybe even some of TOMS products in display. And don’t feel guilty of spending too much here, it’s all for a good cause!
