18 Grams Barista Sum introduced in Reuters

  We are honored to be mentioned on this short clip from Reuters.  As Cathay Yang mentioned “Hong Kong will be competing for the first time in the World Barista Championship in Vienna next June.  The winner here will slug it out with 51 other baristas from around the world.”  Our goal has always been to push the coffee culture in Hong Kong to the next level, and we are proud to serve world competing class coffee in all of our coffee shops.

18 Grams Tsim Sha Tsui is Now Open!  Come enjoy our competition blend Big Bad Wolf with one of our award winning Barista stationed in Tsim Sha Tsui.  This is a very tight spot, some even ask if we are trying to break the smallest cafe record in Hong Kong.  We will have 5 seats at the spot in the coming weeks.  Hopefully we can get to know and talk to each one of you when we serve your coffee. Note this is a coffee tasting counter, we will not have any food there.  You will understand why when you see it.
