Matte black latte | The blackest coffee, Wasabi coffee and Egg Cappuccino are sold at Round K in New York

20-9-2018

Another very ‘Instagrammable’ product: Matte black latte! Round K Coffee Roasters has been roasting coffee beans from around the globe since 2015. Owner OCKHYEON BYEON developed the wholesale system with their signature blends that are crafted to create holistic and immersive cultural experiences, like the ‘Matte black latte’, ‘the Wasabi latte’ and an ‘Egg Cappuccino’. Their  philosophy is incorporating space, atmosphere, mood, and flavor into the making of coffee. Each coffee bean is different and so is the roasting process. The café is reminiscent of Dah-Bahn (Korean coffee shops) and is inspired by the stories of older generations of South Korea. The design is a bit kitchy, with a mixed culture and a main actor, the barista. Round K café is located in Lower East-Side, on Allen Street in New York City. read more

September 6th, Starbucks opened their new coffee establishment Reserve Roastery Milan. Instead of targeting the more accessible coffee to-go market in America, they chose to try to penetrate the more conservative Italian market. The Reserve Roastery in Milan will be located in a former post office at the edge of the Piazzo Cordusio in Milan. In this spectacular building, Starbucks will try to show its craftsmanship and its ability to innovate to a broader audience in Southern Europe. Starbucks has opened a similar concept in Seattle in 2014 and one in Shanghai in 2017. So if you are curious for this new coffee experience, you do not have to travel all the way to America or China anymore, you can experience it in Milan as well.
