Hong Kong - Barista Journey

The Cupping Room is sited on the ground floor at 299 Queens Road Central, Sheung Wan, not far from Central Hong Kong Island.  Best to use the MTR station for access, the cafe is in a rather characteristic suburb with ambiance, all types of small businesses and a feeling of old Hong Kong.   

The Cupping Room has a breakfast and brunch menu - I tried the Eggs Benny and I loved it!     The coffee, a Melbourne  inspiration,  was to my taste lighter than I anticipated and with a creamy after feel - I initially recalled Anthology cafe in Brisbane CBD but that had an oomph about it.   Still, in 2013, the Cupping Room was the home of the winner of the Hong Kong Barista Championships.
