without comments

The Cupping Room (Wanchai)

Tel: +852 2371 2338
Hours: [weekdays] 8am-5pm [weekends] 9am-6pm
Price: 30-60 HKD/coffee
Visited: Aug 2016

We happened to pass by The Cupping Room after leaving Omotesando Koffee, and decided to try a cup from this famed cafe as well. Kapo the owner has been winning awards at Hong Kong Barista Championships for 3 years in a row, and has also represented Hong Kong at the World Barista Championships, winning #2 in 2014. His first cafe is in Sheungwan, though apparently he spends more of his time at this Wanchai location.

離開 Omotesando Koffee 後正好路過大名鼎鼎的The Cupping Room,決定再來一杯。老板Kapo曾連續三年在香港咖啡師大賽獲獎,並且于2014年代表香港參加 “世界咖啡大師賽” 獲得第二名,是香港咖啡界的名人。他的首家店開在上環,不過據說他本人經常在灣仔店站台,雖然我到訪的這天沒有看到他。

[Hong Kong 香港] Omotesando Koffee

Omotesando Koffee started out as a pop-up shop in Tokyo’s Omotesando district, situated in a tiny, traditional Japanese home. It became famed for its espressos and cube-shaped designs – logo, work station, and even pastries are cube-shaped – that it eventually stayed for 5 years, until the building became too old to sustain the shop. Cafe owner Eiichi Kunimoto then moved it to Toranomon Koffee in Tokyo’s Toranomon Hills, before he expanded to a second Omotesando Koffee in Hong Kong.

香港的第一杯咖啡,在Omotesando Koffee。這家咖啡館的本店設立于東京表參道,據說本來只是家快閃店,沒想到大受歡迎,一開就是5年。本店因爲建築老舊的原因歇業後,主理人國友榮一開了姐妹店 Toranomon Koffee,以及香港灣仔的這家分店。

The charming surroundings of an old Japanese residential building cannot be replicated in Hong Kong’s Lee Tung Avenue, but just about everything else has been carried over, including Omotesando Koffee’s signature cube design as you can see below.

Omotesando Koffee最明顯的特點就是 “盒子” 主題的設計,從標志、店裝、到甜點,全部都是方塊狀。國友榮一的解釋是:“日本傳統茶道中,泡茶及品嚐的過程都會在一個簡潔場所進行,衝咖啡亦如是,Omotesando Koffee 所提倡的「盒子」概念令我們專注於咖啡。”

Beans are sourced from the same roaster in Tokyo, and Japanese staff members have been stationed in Hong Kong to ensure the same quality of coffee is served. Omotesando features two house blends, one is a mix of Ethiopian, Brazilian and Indonesian beans with a balanced flavor, and the second is a fruitier blend of Guatemalan and Panama beans.

Omotesando Koffee一部份日本店員常駐香港,提供與東京本店一致的味道,選用咖啡豆也是與日本同樣由小川咖啡室烘焙而成。 根據店員的說法,這裏主打兩款house blend,第一款選用埃塞俄比亞、巴西以及印尼的咖啡豆,味道較平衡;第二款則選用危地馬拉及巴拿馬的咖啡豆,味道較鮮明,果香味比較重。

Grand Hyatt needs no introduction. There is nothing bedazzling about the hotel in terms of architectural design, but if you are looking for consistent quality and attentive service, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong would be it.

Christmas decoration 

Reception

Our Grand Deluxe Harbour View Room, furnished with a King bed with cozy duvet and feather pillows, also came with killer views of the Victoria Harbour. Business travelers would like the spacious workstation and the selection of magazines in the room – The Economist, Forbes, Newsweek, TIME…etc.
