Today is our inaugural monthly wrap up, wherein we count off our favorite places from all those we’ve covered. It’s so much fun stopping by the various coffee shops, cocktail bars, restaurants, and even tea places around the region, seeking out amazing and memorable drinks. And of all the great establishments visited, we’ve managed to cobble together a short list of the few who truly exceed our standards. They exemplify a mastery of their craft, ingenuity, and creativity. The four main criteria are quality of service, beverage design, space concept, and beverage philosophy. While these are our tops, we still love many more! So, without further ado, here are our best picks of June in no particular order:
C-Lounge, Philippines – A totally undiscovered treasure that neighbors Manila Bay’s famously pink sunset.
Cupping Room, Hong Kong – This is the very first coffee shop you should visit when in town.
Congrats Cafe, Taiwan – A concept that should not have worked, but was executed perfectly.
The Giving Cafe, Philippines – Giving Philippine specialty coffee a chance to showcase itself to the world.
