Zombie Coffee Hongdae Seoul - front

There are coffee shops on basically every street in Korea and for the most part they are nice. However the quality of the coffee isn’t fantastic and they prefer to add a load of sugar and cream isn’t of quality coffee. Some Koreans have seen this gap in the market and have started to buck the trend and produce freshly roasted quality coffee. Zombie Coffee which is located in the Hongdae Area of Seoul is one of those places, they buy quality coffee beans and then roast themselves on site and then sell the quality coffee at a reasonable price.

When we visited the strange thing was that it was empty, we were the only customers on a nice Saturday afternoon. Sadly this does seem oddly common with some great places in Seoul, either they’re super busy or basically dead. We do hope that business will pick up as they really do produce some great coffee.
