Coffee Project #2: Presso

4 May

541697_132159906947631_1467110250_n
“… my second trip, I tried the Presso machine. The young, female barista told me to take a seat and prepared a tray with the coffe making equipment and ingredients. I was enthused and enthralled immediately. In all my trips to coffee shops, I had never actively participated in making coffee (when I went to a coffee planation in Costa Rica, I wasn’t selected to make the coffee). What I liked most about this experience was that I felt like I had actually made something, and there is no better feeling than knowing you contributed to some thing in society, even if your contribution is just 4,000 won to a cafe in a city with thousands of cafes. I also thought maybe this is an only-in-Korea activiity. When I treated my family to Korean BBQ in K-Town in L.A., my brother was like, let me get this straight: we pay to cook our own food? LOL…”Coffee Project Visit #2: FB photos & review ^^

Porcelain Cup (Japanese Cafe)– Anam Station

23 Apr

“…A barista at Cofffee Project suggested this Japanese Cafe for a unique experience. Japanese coffee, I’m told, is roasted long and gives a strong, bold taste. I liked the cafe because it had an old school salon feeling with light jazz music and dim lights. The porcelain cups added to its classy sophistication. My Chinese Quince tea was a nice blend of citrus and sweetness. My friend’s said his…”

Anam Station — Coffee Project #1: Vietnamese

“8 variety of beans, 6 different machines, but still just 1 thing — coffee (lol)”
I haven’t been here in a while, but it is definitely one of my favorite cafes in Seoul. I have introduced this cafe to many cafe followers, so I hope you enjoy it. Love life and it will love you back ^^

Noksapyeong — Le Cafe

2 Apr

Image“…So many foreigners live in Haebangchon, which is the more residential area of the Itaewon. I moved here when I began teaching writing at a university in Seoul. There are tons of cafes in Haebangchon but Le Cafe by far is the best and the first in the area. The owner is friendly and talkative. The ham and cheese sandwich is substantial for a meal with high quality ingredients but at a low cost. And during the summer time, if you ask,…”

Noksapyeong — Literary Cafe

2 Apr

“…Literary cafes were once the popular leisure activity of the day. Perhaps in this cafe, those days return, refined and rehearsed. (Cafe Ohana is small but with tons of nature light. Friendly staff members serve various juice-ades in mini-pitchers; the ades not only quench a summer thirst but provide a flavorful blend of sweetness and citrus tang. Teas are served in…”Image

Directions via Seoul Writer’s Workshop : Go out of exit 2 of Noksapyeong station and walk straight down the hill until you reach the underpass.
Go under the road, go up the right side steps and walk back up on the other side of the street as if you were going back to the station.
After about 15 metres you will pass a motorcycle store. On the corner is Chan Bros coffee.
Turn left up that side street. Walk up the hill. On the right is Hera’s bistro (which may or may not be having a flea market!).
Cafe Ohana is about 25m up the hill on the left. It’s white with a glass front. There are some weird cats and gnomes on a chair outside, and the back wall has a large mural on it.

Itaewon — Chai Night

2 Apr

“...Rishi Lab did not disappoint; in fact, the Chai Latte and Milk Tea were the perfect selections for a wintry evening of reading and writing. The Chai Latte was milky with a hint of sweetness and subtle spices. The Milk Tea was smooth but lacked any sweetness, yet it was not bitter. The Milk Tea was a bit strong, but nothing sips of water couldn’t balance out. The teas provided a calming aura that helped to release the stress of writing the next, great travel article (lol). And the mellow jazz music was at a perfect volume, so it enhanced and encouraged writing instead of being intrusive. Rishi Lab has…”

Itaewon — Chilling & Waiting

Image“…Although I prefer Jamba Juice, I enjoyed this Smoothie King for its modern and sleek design, the flavorful BBQ tacos, and the chill-out musical selections. The lighting was efficient without being those awful, fluorescent lights which makes Comma Cafe…”
