Hello coffee lovers out there! This group is for those coffee maniacs who are on a mission to seek out the best coffees and cafes in Seoul, those who prefer lovingly brewed single origin hand drip coffee over commodity expresso offerings from Starbucks or Caffe Bene, those who salivate at the thought of trying the latest freshly roasted single origin coffee beans from his/her favorite local micro-roastery.
This meetup is for those who love and treasure quirky neighborhood cafes that feature great coffee, unique original interiors, awesome ambience and inviting space, where a coffee lover can linger comfortably while working or reading a favorite book, chatting with friends or people watching.
"Third Wave of Coffee" represents the worldwide movement to elevate the coffee culture from drinking over-roasted, generic blended coffees, to enjoying higher quality, single origin, artisanal coffees. Third wave coffee aspires to the highest form of culinary appreciation of coffee, so that one may appreciate subtleties of flavor, varietal, and growing region (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_wave_of_coffee).
With each meetup, we will seek out a new interesting cafe in the most interesting trendy neighborhoods, on a manic mission to find the best tasting third wave coffee in Seoul! We will use our smartphones to take fun and beautiful photos of the cafe and publish the best pics on our group Instagram page!
We will taste and discuss the coffees we drink and publish the cafe review on our group blog page! For those coffee geeks out there (myself included), we can also discuss our favorite coffee beans and cafes, best brewing methods, coffee related websites and blog pages on the internet, most memorable cafes visited throughout the world.
But this group is not just for coffee maniacs. Anyone who loves coffee, loves meeting new interesting friends, who want to talk about his/her favorite music, books, art, philosophy, culture, travel destinations, food, wine, or any other hobbies are all welcome to join!
