Best Korean coffees of 2016

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year 2017!

While my regular posts are still about cafés I visited a few years ago, I certainly went to many new and amazing cafés in 2016. So here, while not a regular post or review, is a little gift of eye candy at least.

Phew! Seems like a lot, but that’s just a small sample of the 365+ coffees I had last year. ^^

I’m fond of many of these places, and I had such good coffee at many of these places as well as countless others. But of all of the places listed above, the one I would most recommend to you is 커피한약방 (Coffee Hanyakbang) in Euljiro, for the combination of amazing coffee and amazing atmosphere. I discovered it through an article in Seoul Magazine, which you can find here.

Have a great cup of coffee today, and a great year!
