Whole Latte Flavour

There’s nothing more comforting than the waft of freshly brewed coffee, or more invigorating than an instant energy hit! Building its street cred as a coffee city, Hong Kong’s latest cafes bring out the beauty of the bean in these stellar cups.

CAFE DEADEND
72 Po Hing Fong, Sheung Wan, +852 6056 8005
Perfect for: Those who like a little peace and quiet. Tucked away in a shady lane, you’ll almost forget you’re in Hong Kong.
Savour this: Order the ‘dirty’ – a shot of Five Seeds espresso with cold milk. Bread heads will be in heaven – the bostock and kouign amann from Po’s Atelier next door are to die for.
Those in the know: Avoid the weekends or go early, this place gets rammed quickly – and for good reason.

CUPPING ROOM
299 Queen’s Road Central, Sheung Wan, +852 2799 3398
Perfect for: Anyone missing Melbourne coffee shops – it’s the next best thing.
Savour this: The iced mocha comes with vanilla ice-cream, whipped cream, and just the right amount of java to make it grown-up.
Those in the know: They are one of the only cafés in Asia serving Counter Culture Coffee, who aim to create a sustainable supply chain and minimise environmental impact.

COCO ESPRESSO
G/F, 2 Anton Street, Wan Chai, +852 2529 1682
Perfect for: Those who wish to linger. Their super-friendly team will make you feel right at home.

Those in the know:  Get their bottled ice coffee to go when you’re on the run!

HAZEL & HERSHEY
Shop 3, 69 Peel, Central, +852 3106 0760

Savour this: Lattes are sublime. Especially to wash down their fresh from the oven berry tarts.

18 GRAMS
Hoi Tao Court, 15-27 Cannon St, Causeway Bay, +852 2893 8988
Perfect for: Coffee geeks. You’ll be pleased to know that they research every last detail, from weather to soil from the origin of the beans.
