In Seoul you’re never far away from a Coffee Shop, however they can be pretty similar and the coffee pretty average. So when we heard about Ikovox Coffee in Itaewon which roasts it’s own beans on site we thought it was worth a look. It was a great decision as the coffee here is fantastic and some of the best in Itaewon and Seoul in general.
If you compare Ikovox Coffee to a franchise coffee place the price is pretty similar with an Americano (Black Coffee) or a Latte setting you back about ₩5000. However the taste is a lot stronger and richer, The flavor is fresher and smoother. You can also buy the roasted coffee beans and make some great coffee at home, with a small bag starting at around ₩9000.
If you’re in the Itaewon area and looking for a quality cup of coffee Ikovox is well worth checking out.
These first few pictures are of the coffee shop inside and outside:

Location & Links
Ikovox Coffee in Itaewon it pretty simple to find if you know the area but a bit tricky if it’s your first time. Basically if you’re at Itaewon Station find Exit 1, then take a right up a small hill then a left. Continue straight a few minutes and it’s on the right. If you reach a T junction you’ve gone to far.
The Address we think is: 용산구 이태원동 118-71 / 118-71 Itaewon-dong, Yongsan-gu, Seoul.
