Yesterday was a holiday-Monday in Korea. It was a beautiful autumn day, and I was feeling like going somewhere; doing something on my own and just enjoy the sunshine. I took the subway down to Sinsa, got out at exit 8, and walked the last couple of hundred meters to CoffeeSmith. I know I love the coffee there, as well as the atmosphere, but I’m not sure yet if it’s because the coffee is something special, or just feels like it is because it’s more expensive than anywhere else in Seoul.
CoffeeSmith is located at Garosugil; a street in Apgujeong, an area famous among other things for its exclusive designer shops, picturesque cafés, and creative streets style.
Apgujeong is one of the most expensive areas to live and keep shops in, which is obviously reflected on the price-tags. I think I’ve said it before, but I don’t go shopping there because, apart from the brand clothes, most of it is bought in Dongdaemun and sold with a ridiculous difference in price (trendy, but cheap and low quality). But for window-shopping, or “eye-shopping” as the Koreans say, it’s a great area!
So, I walked around, took some pictures of happy people and pretty houses with my iPhone! Enjoy! If you have some good Garuso coffee shop recomendations, please let me know!
