The Beaner’s Guide to Coffee Tasting

Arguably the best cafe in Gangnam, the Beaner Cafe has been greeting coffee lovers for six years. The first of our Seoul cafe tour series is the Beaner cafe in Banpo-dong, close to Shinnonhyeon subway station.

Just go inside a block from the populated main road (Gangnam-daero), and you’ll run into a cozy-looking brick building, on the first floor of which resides cafe Beaner. Grab your favorite style of coffee, whether that be Americano, latte or an espresso shot. I sat down with Lee Min Seok, the Beaner’s head barista and owner. Min Seok blends coffee that harmoniously tastes sweet and sour, and his coffee is not bitter.
