A coffee crawl around Hong Kong would seem incomplete without a trip to at least one of The Coffee Academics’ twelve stores in that country. We visited the one along Yiu Wa street in Causeway Bay and it may have been one of the classiest coffee shops we’ve ever seen. A brass plate embedded on the entrance floor has words from Napoleon Bonaparte engraved on it, inviting guests to go ahead and have their much deserved coffee break.
The interiors of the cafe boasts of the best and finest materials and equipment. The style is reminiscent of old english parlors but with modern touches. It seems the perfect place to go on a special coffee date, because this is the kind of setting you want locked in a sweet memory with a special someone. just by being there, you do feel attended to, entertained by, and served upon by their well trained baristas that don’t cut corners and only aim for excellence. Perhaps they may not necessarily be the finest coffee shop on the island anymore, but they’re OG here, still down to business, and taking pride in doing their job well.
The Coffee Academics have now opened multiple shops in five different countries, raising the standard of coffee culture in Asia and producing world-class coffees and award-winning blends.
