As a token of appreciation, we have sent some of our craft beer back to Finca Ziska Panama and they are loving it! A few months ago, we have partnered with a local craft beer brewer and we made some specialty beer with some high quality Panama specialty coffee. It’s always cool to be able to send our gratitude to the farmers who produced these wonderful coffee. Fruitbomb is one of our personal favorite and it seems our customers agree with us too. Thanks for the long hard work, we will treasure your effort and this connection. It’s a blessing to be able to enjoy these great coffee! Enjoy the beer we made with your coffee.

Our new coffee beer is here!

The art of roasting, and the importance of roasting locally.

We are proud to be a local Hong Kong Coffee Roaster. And what that means for you is that you can taste better coffee. Coffee is not just a commodity, coffee is a plant. Most people compare coffee as a product on the shelf of supermarkets, and they do not truly see what this energizing product really is. Coffee was originally grown on trees and they take a berry form. The seeds inside is what is called the coffee seed, or the coffee bean. After the coffee picked and processed, it will end up in the green bean form, which in when we step in.

In 18 Grams we strive to roast our coffee bean to perfection, what that means is we will roast the coffee so that the true taste of the coffee will shine through. If the temperature control of the roasting wasn’t done properly, the rising temperature speed wasn’t controlled properly, or even the roasting time is too short or too long, the taste of the coffee bean either will not be fully developed, or the true taste will be buried by other unpleasant taste.
Coffee
After they are roasted, another very important aspect is the extraction. Are the coffee being made with proper skills and the taste being tuned correctly? This is where our most extensive training for our staff comes into play. We spend a lot of effort and resources to train our staff, each of them can make the perfect cup of coffee for you. If you have any taste preference make sure you let our staff know, and we will for sure make your cup of coffee especially for you.

Happy 2017 and Our mission for 2017!

Our new shop @ 1-3 Mercer street



We wish everyone a healthy and joyful 2017! The start of each year is always a good time to sit down and reflect on ourselves on the plan for this coming year. In 2017 we wish to keep sourcing and roasting some great coffee for our customers. In 2016 we had to close/move some of our shops due to the rent of our shops. The economy in Hong Kong is starting to become even more difficult for small businesses such as us, making us harder to focus on just making great coffee. Our new shop in Sheung Wan is shaping up nicely and we hope we can continue to serve great coffee in this new space, and hope we can conduct some long overdue coffee classes we promised long ago.   We are scheduled to open end of Jan 2017.  See you soon!

Address : 1-3 Mercer street Sheung Wan.
