The International Coffee Museum
The old Busanjin Station, where trains no longer stop, has been transformed into a 'Cultural Platform Citizen's Yard' where various cultural programs and special performances are held for citizens through remodeling. Behind the warm pink building is a dense train track and the vast Port of Busan.
On the first floor of the building, there is a special space called ‘The International Coffee Museum.’ About 2000 coffee machines from all over the world are on display, so you can see the history of coffee machines around the world in one place.
1st Global Yeongdo Coffee Festival & Yeongdo Coffee-Specialized StreetIn Yeongdo, one of Busan's coffee hot spots, a special coffee festival will be held in November. The Yeongdo Coffee Festival, which marks its 3rd anniversary this year following 2019 and 2021, is named 'Global' and has a much larger scale than before: 8 coffee producing countries, 2 major farm owners, 80 coffee industry companies, and 120 booths will participate. As a participatory coffee festival for residents, free coffee tasting and various hands-on events will be held, so it would be good to visit Amir Park in front of the Korea National Maritime Museum from November 4th to 6th.
Momos Roastery & Coffee BarIt is a cafe where you can see at a glance the process of coffee making: storing coffee beans, roasting, and packing. It is also represented by Barista Jeon Ju-yeon, the first Korean winner of the 2019 World Barista Championship. Inside the cafe, which was built by renovating the dock, you can fully observe and appreciate the process of storing green beans, roasting beans, and brewing coffee.
Blackup Coffee Eulsukdo Branch
Blackup Coffee, Busan's must-visit cafe for coffee lovers, offers a variety of hand-drip coffee and unique drinks. In particular, the Eulsukdo branch has a beautiful garden with Pink Muhly grass, so it is good for taking pictures with coffee. The interior with wide windows also feels nice. You can enjoy hand-drip coffee while sitting at the bar and purchase your favorite coffee beans.
Blackup Coffee's signature menu is 'Sea Salt Coffee,' with sweet cream on top of a cold brew sprinkled with salt. You can drink it straight away without stirring the cream, and the soft texture is excellent. The sweetness is felt first, followed by the savory taste. Finally, the salty taste follows. The salty taste reminiscent of the Busan sea is attractive. You can immerse yourself in the charm of Busan coffee by adding the beautiful scenery of Eulsukdo to the special taste of coffee.
