coffee

73. – 75. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, T&T’s Party Coffee & Cocktail, Cafe Adam’s

One friend commented on my mission to log “All the Coffee in Korea” as trying to count every grain of sand on the beach. Actually, he said this would be harder.


69. – 72. Hollys Coffee, Caffe One+One, A Twosome Place, 261 Street

All the Coffee in Korea (An Evolving List)

Would you like a little T'aegukki with your coffee?

Would you like a little T’aegukki with your coffee?

How much is “All the Coffee in Korea” anyway? That answer, to anyone who has walked this country’s occasionally wide, but often narrow streets, is about as obvious as a large, hairy, broad-shouldered waygookin is in a sea of small, curious hangookin children.

A lot (just in case the comment above didn’t make a lot of sense).


65. – 68. Dongnae Coffee Shop, Manna Dream, Funny Salon, Happy Coffee (Gimhae)

65. Dongnae Coffee Shop. This place, in the Yeonji Park lightrail station section of Gimhae, is so small and innocuous I didn't even notice it at first. But, they made me a decent cup of 2-shot Americano for a reasonable price.

60. – 64. Paris Baguette, Tous les Jours, T-World Cafe, Davich Cafe & Caffe, Issac Toast & Coffee (Gimhae)

These are the “not just coffee” entries that, nonetheless, must be mentioned. Why? Well, because they sell coffee, dagnabbit.

I have established some (arbitrary) rules for when a business gets on the list. There is no need to artificially inflate the numbers. As a commenter noted in a recent post: “I have never seen so many coffee shops in my life.”


56. – 59. Cafe Beato, Mins Coffee, Capia, JaJeonGo Poong Gyong (Gimhae)

In Korea, one will often find the same kind of commerce specialties side-by-side-by-side. As if the logic goes that if one business is popular, others selling similar product should set up shop in the same location. This applies to cell phone shops (ad nauseum, it should be noted), restaurants and, absolutely, coffee shops.

Here are four located very, very close to one of the schools I teach at during the week. At least I’ll never be without caffeine on Wednesdays!


55. Cafe Ever (Random Weekly Review)

Am I the only person who thinks this cafe’s logo looks like the place would be a ski lodge in a 1980s movie about the K12?

Cafe Ever, a tribute to skiing the K12.

Cafe Ever. Go that way really fast. If an Americano gets in your way, ask for milk (and possibly get confused looks from the baristas).


51. – 54. Irang, The Venti, Caffe e Cibo, Crema (Busan)

51. IRANG Coffee and Brunch, Gwangan, Busan.

47. – 50. Makimaki Roasters, Grangba, Chung Choon Cafe, Blue Windmill (Gimhae)

47. Makimaki Roasters. This is part of a group of I am assuming independent coffee shops, which include one called Another Coffee Company. I hope that name was given tongue-in-cheek.

43. – 46. BC800, Caffe D’ate, Monorail Coffee, Dahlia Dolci (Gimhae)

What does the BC in BC800 stand for? Before Christ? Before Coffee? 800 years before coffee? I'm so confused. This chain's location was photographed in Samgye, Gimhae.
