In the kitchenette visible through the café’s full wall window, homemade citron tea is being served by the barista, in a handmade ceramic mug. Inside, a few dozen mugs painted by customers are being glazed in the potter/owner’s careful hands of reverence. Located on a quiet street of Hongdae, Pottery Café Jool provides a sense of comfort that reflects the owner’s wish to grant modest yet heartwarming memories with pottery as a medium. As such, this café allows its customers to take a good amount of time for them to enjoy tea and conversations whilst sharing their first time paint-your-own ceramic experience. It may be nothing extravagant, but what you take out of it will certainly be memorable, fragrant and solid.
