âBlue Bottleâ made coffee enthusiasts excited just by the news that it had landed in Korea.
Samcheong-dong? Yeoksam-dong? There were various speculations about the first store,
The first branch in Korea is Seongsu-dong! The first business opened on May 3 in Seongsu-dong, where various cafes are located.
You can open it at 8 o'clock and go around 9:30, right? I visited with that in mind, but…
It is said that was the biggest mistake in 2019.. ^^
As soon as I left Exit 1 of Ttukseom Station, there was a huge waiting line.
Bask in the hot sun, the atmosphere with no end in sight continued.
The water you share while you're tired from the heat feels like an oasis in the middle of a desert.
Also, it's early in the opening, so if you visit now
Blue Bottle CEO Brian Meehan, who I've seen a lot on the news and social media,
You can also take a selfie with Michael Phillips, the general manager of coffee culture.
After 4 hours of queuing up… I was finally able to enter the store.
However, there is a long waiting period from inside the store to the stairs.
The ground floor of the store consists of a roastery where coffee is roasted, and the basement consists of a cafe space where you can drink coffee.
The interior has the same concrete texture, and is full of social media sensibility these days!
Arrived at 9:30 and was close to 2 o'clock
I entered as the 546th guest.
After choosing the goods and beans, you can buy them along with the coffee. They say it's only sold in Korea
The clear mug was already out of stock. (black black)
Unlike the bustling outside, the inside of the store consists of a large space
I felt a more relaxed atmosphere than I had anticipated.
The fun of making coffee in an open space and watching is amazing!
Blue Bottle collaborated with Maison Mo to Madeleine, Huinang City, etc.
You can enjoy 9 kinds of bakeries with coffee.
The scones and cake were all sold out, so I ordered mainly leftover desserts.
âNEW ORLEANS (NEW ORLEANS)â – 5,800 won
This menu is Blue Bottle's signature menu
Grind specialty beans with chicory root and soak them in cold water,
It's coffee mixed with organic milk and sugar.
It's a combination of the savory flavor and sweetness unique to latte.
It's an addictive flavor that makes you keep sipping on sipping because it's not too sweet.
âAmericanoâ – 5,000 won
You can choose beans according to your preferences,
If you prefer acidity, I recommend the original, and if you like the savory flavor, I recommend blending.
I prefer a savory flavor, so I chose a blend!
It was nice to have a mild fruit flavor even though it was bitter
There was almost no acidity, so it was an excellent choice.
âMadeleineâ – 3,500 won
First of all, what is the sesame oil/hazelnut madeleine that can only be tasted in Korea
The smell of sesame oil that you can feel even before you eat it~
The savory flavor and aroma of sesame oil went better with the bread than I thought
Hazelnuts enhance the chewy texture.
The sugar/hazelnut had a slight lemon scent.
Personally, I felt that the madeleines would be more delicious if they were slightly more moist.
âTo Huinang Cityâ – 2,900 won
In Huinang City, the outside has a rough texture and the inside feels moist
I was able to feel the immediate touch on the outside!
It has a strong sweet flavor, so I think it would be great to take a sip of Americano or take a bite at Huinang City.
'Lemon Cookie' – 3,200 won
A dessert made with lemon icing on top of cookies full of butter flavor.
As soon as I took a bite, whoa! Refreshing! It's so sweet and sour that the word pops out.
'Casonade Cookie' – 3,700 won
If it felt like a lemon cookie was melting in your mouth
Casonade cookies are crunchy and rough.
If you want the feeling of just chewing on it, I recommend Casonade cookies!
âLatteâ – 6,100 won
This is a visual you've probably seen on Instagram or social media at least once.
I took out the latte and ate it while it came out, but it was more than savory
It's a taste that makes your mouth feel full.
If you still don't know the appeal of latte, I think it would be a good idea to try Blue Bottle Latte as an introduction.
After being in the cafe for about an hour, I came out. Has the atmosphere decreased a bit?
But I feel like I'm three times bigger than when I arrived..!
From now on, the Blue Bottle will be gone in a month…
