All the Coffee in Gimhae

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).


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.

30. – 34. NY Hotdog & Coffee, Waffle & Caffe, Cupcake & Coffee, Cafe DOU, Ruban Coffeebible (Busan, Gimhae)

Sometimes, coffee is just not enough.

Some prospective business owners recognize this and decide to add something else to the mix, in hopes of attracting a wider audience, whether that’s hot dogs, cupcakes, or the Lord above.


24. L’Revelry (Random Weekly Review)

There are real people behind the many, many, many coffee shops that line the streets of South Korea.

Recently, I noticed the closure of a cafe owned by a friend and former associate of Wart’s here in Gimhae. I had planned to get a photo of it and even do one of these “RWR’s” for it because of its personal connection, as well as its Konglish-y name, (which I won’t mention here. Why kick the coffee cup when it’s empty?). Now, in place of yet another coffee shop, will be yet another barbecue restaurant (it seems). Hopefully, Wart’s friend did not lose a lot of money from the business venture. But, I have to imagine at least something was lost.

I thought about this when I popped into L’Revelry after work today.


20. – 23. Cafe Sweet Coax, Cafe Tirol, The Caffe, Yellow Coffee (Gimhae)

Here are a few of the coffee shops I can walk to. Some, like Cafe Sweet Coax, are close enough that I could walk to all the time if I was in love with their coffee. Others, like Yellow Coffee, may be a bit too far for a last second decision, but are still close enough if I cannot resist having a little color with my caffeine.


12. – 15. Angel-in-us, Tom N Toms, Ediya, Dunkin’ Donuts (Gimhae)

Here are four of the most visible coffee shop chains you will find in South Korea. All of these locations were photographed in Gimhae.


7. – 11. Cafe Do, Cafe Friends, Imperial Coffee, Coffee Tree, Let it be (Gimhae)

These were the coffee shops that surrounded my first apartment in Gimhae I lived in for two months at the beginning of 2014. I took a ride back to that area Friday morning to see what remained and what had gone to the caffeinated clouds in the sky.


4. – 6. Gentle Coffee, Starbucks Coffee, Black Keys

At first, I hoped this was a play on a type of coffee that has low acidity, like the Aeropress. Sadly, it does not appear to be (it's also not very good).
