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.

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.
