It’s no surprise that Hong Kong is home to the densest population of coffee lovers, and may we even say, coffee addicts? It’s the city of hustle and late nights but also a city that knows how to chill out. Having said that, it all makes perfect sense why we’ve been seeing a surge in new indie coffee shops out there, not that we’re complaining.
