Rumours have been swirling around Hong Kong’s F&B scene for months now, and we can finally confirm that Oakland’s famed Blue Bottle Coffee has soft-opened their 3,000-square-foot shopfront on Central’s Lyndhurst Terrace, as per the company’s official Instagram account.
Famed for its streamlined design, bright and chic atmosphere, and freshly roasted beans, this major player in third-wave coffee culture made a name for itself in the early 2000s by vowing to only sell coffee that is less than 48 hours out of the roaster, so guests and caffeine lovers alike may enjoy their brews at peak flavour.
From humble beginnings in Oakland, California, the brand—which is often likened to the “Apple of the coffee industry” for its aesthetic presentation and devoted following—has now expanded to cover several metropolises across the States, as well as Japan and South Korea. Blue Bottle’s first café in Hong Kong soft-opened on 29 April and operates from 8 am to 5 pm daily.
