4 Fav Coffee Roasters

Coffee lovers rejoice! There are four lovely micro-roasters in Pyeongtaek. Each one a little different than the next. Since each coffee addict has their own unique pallet, we wont try to tell you which one is best. We can say that we have tried each of these and found them to be solid depending on different preferences.

It might also be good to know that, in Korea, a large number of the beans are sourced from Ethiopia and other parts of Africa. The flavor tends to be more acidic and bitter than you will be used to if you generally drink beans from Central America. It's not bad, it's just different. You also really need to keep it air tight so that it doesn't get too intense.

That said, you can get single source beans from a few of these roasters. For example, Cafe Kong has the most choices from Central America. We often use them since we prefer softer, smoother coffee.

Since pricing also vary a great deal based on bean source and market prices, we have not included prices.

All that said, here are our favs:
