25-35RMB/212cm (per cup)
more expensive than costa or Starbucks.

coffee beans: brazil or mid arabica coffee beans
different coffee makers makes totally different coffees( i could taste them out)
on the third floor of a newly open plaza
seldom people know this place, obviously the rent will be much cheaper, but it will be missed by many coffee drinkers( though coffee lovers might not really love the coffees here, it s similar to Starbucks, some are better, some are just...50 50).
i prefer more...bluce, Jazz or coffee-like music, but most of the music r from hk rock music or some r from Japan etc. it s fine when i m just being there chatting with friends, but if for working, it would be a disadvantage.
