My very first coffee shop I had in Korea was Coffee Mall in 2012. IT has never disappointed, and today confirmed again why I love this place so much. The owner is a master at roasting and brewing!

I took my parents here who are visiting, and they loved it so much too. We ordered a sweet potato Latte, an Earl grey tea and a Special drip.  I was so impressed by the owner who came over with fresh roasted and ground beans in a drip top. He had a copper water pitcher that he poured over the freshly ground beans. Then he did another full drip which produced some deliciousness. Before we had some of his amazing creation, he went and got some dutch coffee that he had made.  He gave us all a sample. WOW!!! I have not had caffeine for a while, well since last October. But, I had to try this amazing stuff. So, he poured some in little cups and he joined with us.  Then he got more glasses so all of us would drink the special drink together. WOW!! Eye balls popping out!!!! SO GOOD!!!!

BEST COFFEE in all of Korea I think. Also he has the infamous cup of beans that are from the droppings of an animal. See previous post on this! Or the link below:

Coffee Field (Asan)

We set out on an adventure to find something to do on a Sunday afternoon. I feel we are becoming old, as we like Sunday drives!  Anyhow, we cam across this little gem. In the middle of a busy town, close to downtown, but a little outside of it is a place called Coffee Field.

The outside was great, and calming, and made me want to run in a field of grass. But, when we got in the inside didn't quite match. The inside was great, and amazing but had a little different theme, (more urban) than the outside.  This place were roasters as well. They roasted their own beans right in the cafe. The smell was amazing in the place, as well as the spaciousness of it all.

See below. We had a Green tea latte, an Oreo Bingsu, and a cappuccino.  All were amazing.
They also had a Polaroid camera that you could take photos with, and a projector and screen that did something. I wonder what movies, music etc it projects.

Coffee House ( yep thats its name)- Dunpo

We love going and trying new places. Tonight was no exception. We have been interested in new places in Dunpo so here is the second one we tried. 

Coffee House

The place was super nice, clean and quiet. The lady who works there speaks great English. Their menu is in Hangul and English. Also the desserts AKA Honey bread are in a picture menu.
Super easy to order, and the staff are super friendly. 

My hubby had a chocolate mint Mocha. He said it was great, and tasty. 
I had my usual Green Tea latte. So delicious. 
We ordered a fretzel, and it was harder than normal. Overcooked? 
They also have free internet

take the 45 away from Pyeongtaek. the first exit ramp directly after the intersection of 12/45 stay to the right and go down the exit.  Take that road straight into the little town. After the second intersection( be careful the intersections are a free for all) on the left will be COFFEE HOUSE. Its on the second floor above a fish place!

Beans and Vines

Below is a review from a reader. Read here, or see other reviews of it, or others like it. Here.

Gps to Beans and Vine coffee and wine shop in Paengsong near Lotteria. This was a cute little coffee shop with a very quite atmosphere and a friendly woman on staff. The menu is all in korean. I thought thr prices were a bit lower than most other coffee shops. We ordered the waffle, which was smaller than most placed but good and a lemon ice tea for the kids to split which they enjoyed. I ordered a mint chocolate frappachino which was amazing. I'm pretty sure they also serve wine, if someone could translate the signs and poster I posted, I would really appreciate it!

Coffee Bay- Dunpo

We came across a little gem of a place.  Its a chain, but I have only seen 1 other store on the back side of AK plaza.
 Coffee Bay. 

 You are taking the 45 away from Pyeongtaek. Its the exit, road directly after the 12, don't go over the bridge for you will have gone too far. 
Take that exit after 12 and go straight, continue straight as you get into the little town. Coffee Bay will be on the left after the first main intersection. 

They have mini honey bread, (plain and choco)
See photo below. 

My phone was out of battery, so I will update this post with more photos when its charged. 
Below is a photo of what we had.

Insadong- Minto Community coffee

On our week vacation in Insadong, we went to several coffee shops. The following 3 entries are from that time.  
Mintos Coffee House
 Outside entrance stairway down.

They had booths labeled different things. We ended up sitting in Long Suffering.

I had an ice lemon tea. Was ok, nothing amazing.

The hubs got some cheese cake which he loved! 

These are some booths cleverly decorated

more tea! Peppermint.

Directions: If you come out of Insadong main street by the big decorated wall, you will keep going straight till you come to a main big street. You make a right. Take that main street about 3 blocks and on the right you will see a stairway down. That is Mintos!
