Fresh Soy Milk for making Coffee! Apr 03, 2010
Having spoken to a few Coffee baristas in HK, I've always been curious and asked them whether anyone actually orders Soy Latte's or the like - the answer has always been a negative response and for those who used to sell coffee overseas, it has probably shocked them a bit too. Afterall - a lot of overseas coffee drinks are Lactose Intolerant (or equally, have Nuts or Shellfish allergies, hence many Westerners who come to Hong Kong always complain at the presence of Prawns in so many Cantonese dishes as they can't eat it!)
Anyway one man's meat is another man's poison, but here in Hong Kong Soy Milk based Coffees have become a novelty rather than a necessity. (I am actually quite lactose intolerant myself, but I try to live with it. Anyway I used to drink a lot of soy coffees!) Here, they use fresh quality Soy Milk for making their signature coffees!
Unfortunately the Coffee Espresso base was a bit unfresh and very oily, making the underlying taste very burnt too. In fact I complained about my first cup as I saw something strange going on with the way it was made - before I was made a 2nd cup. The Soy Milk was way too hot and a bit burnt too, also lacking Soy bean taste which is strange considering it should be fresh rather than pre-packed.
Anyway, Not really my cup of Coffee and I haven't been back for many months either. HOPE THEY MIGHT IMPROVE NONETHELESS!

a great coffee shop Aug 21, 2007
I like the coffee very much, it is so tasty that i think it is the best in hkg. the sandwiches are healthy, and the price is good.
i really like this coffee shop very much, just in case the boss would see this. Can i ask if you would like to open another coffee shop? I really have the passion to have one like yours. If there is any chance of cooperation, i will never ruin your reputation.

great coffee that makes me addicted Nov 18, 2006
the coffee here tastes very good and the staff are nice. Since it was opened, i got addicted to it. I like that they have daily special discounted coffee, so i could try different taste.
