As a caffeine goer, i could not imagine to travel without dropping by to coffee shops. As much as Hong Kong does not have its own specific bean that i am excited in, I still do a coffee hopping to different spots in hoping to find a nice decent cup for my morning.
Here are the places that we have been to
1. The Cupping Room
As a two times winner of World Barista championship, Cupping Room is indeed one of the best coffee shops that I have visited. Equipped with Mazzer Luigi grinder and Victoria Arduino Black Eagle machine, they serve single origin coffee on demand like the Guatemala or Colombia. Simple thing, their cappuccino even not sugar added, already has the sweetness in itself. The flavour was complex and balance and has the perfect foam texture. Seating is communal on the ground floor, but there are also more tables upstairs. he It has three locations in Central, Wan Chai, and Sheung Wan area.
299 Queens Road, Sheung Wan
18 Cochraine Street, Central
32 Swatow Street, Wan Chai
2. Elephant Grounds
Tucked in the a quaint lifestle shop, Woaw, Elephant Ground is another must try if you are within the area. I went here for a quick coffee to go, and I was really impressed with their strong cappuccino. Thinking about the location, food and drinks are fairly priced. Aside from the exceptional taste, their cup is really one of a kind - thick and nicely designed.
11 Gough Street, Central
3. N1 Coffee and Co
Just a stone throw away from East Tsim Sha Tsui station, N1 Coffee and Co is brought to you by the people from Barista Academy Hong Kong. El Au, its founder is an award winning barista. He developed the coffee shop into something whimsical with a horse carousel statue on the corner. Coffee was decent and food menu is quite simple.
34 Mody Road, Tsim Sha Tsui
4. 18 Grams
15 Cannon street, Causeway Bay
