Yes! Taipei is SO coffee.
But seriously, the coffee shop opposite our apartment is called R U Coffee and it is absolutely adorable!
Lovely art work on the walls, a hushed atmosphere that is perfect for relaxing in, and the best cup of coffee I’ve ever had.
Costa Rican Canet Estate Bach, which had the most mouth watering tastes of cinnamon and honey! Smooth and full bodied coffee, perfectly brewed via V60 👌🏻
Cute decor around the place, especially up at this window bar!
Address: No. 1 Dexing East Road Lane 128, Shihlin District, Taipei City 111, Taiwan ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Opening times: Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 8:00-18:00 and Friday – Sunday 11:30-21:00
Filter coffee: NT$180 (roughly £5)
Delightful place and wonderful people working there – possibly the owners?
After following this amazing coffee house for over a year on Instagram I think it’s safe to say I’ve been desperate to visit!
These guys are incredible baristas! They are judges, latte art champs, winners of various other coffee awards and all-round cool dudes.
Milkglider is a lovely, spacious cafe in the heart of Taipei city serving a selection of coffees, cold brew, teas and insanely good cakes!
They also have barista goodies such as tampers, jugs and tshirts on sale.
I’ll be heading back later for a more in depth review but after 30 hours of flying and not sleeping, I just wanted some decent coffee.
Tshirt: NT$800 (£20)
In less than 48 hours I will be on the plane to Taipei, with far too many clothes and a handful of notebooks waiting to be filled up with details on endless coffee trips…
I have over 30 cafes on my to-visit list and I’m beyond excited, so over the following 18 days you can expect photos, reviews, and more.
Get in touch if you’re in town and would like to meet somewhere for a coffee (or tea!), I’m always up for making new friends and would love to explore Taipei with other people.
In the mean time, here’s my most recent latte art success.
