Maybe, we shouldn’t have a favourite, but we do.
Favourite roaster: Seesaw Coffee & Sumerian Coffee.
That’s because we like light roast. If you prefer medium roast, we would recommend Café del Volcán and for medium dark, Rumors Coffee. And if you insist on having dark dark roast, there is Café Dan in Tianzifang 田子坊, which is well-known for that. Address below:
Café Dan (warning: for those who love dark roast, coffee roaster, coffee shop and Japanese restaurant)
田子坊,黄浦区泰康路248弄41号后门,靠近瑞金二路
Tianzifang, Taikang road, Lane 248, number 41, back gate, near Rui’jin 2nd road, Huangpu district.

Favourite coffee place: Paras Coffee
We like the first floor, and also because for those of us, who are allergic or highly intolerant to cigarette smoke, the air on the second floor is not completely free of pollutants, despite their dedicated smoking zone.

Favourite place to get coffee gears: Café del Volcán

Favourite barista: They are all pretty awesome. Really.

Enjoy! Please feel free to comment, rectify, or share your own favourite coffee experience in Shanghai!

Jim Cochran: Growing Change


The day Jim Cochran realised that he had to help the strawberry farming industry change, he stopped using pesticides and started growing organic crops. By doing so, he was able to provide healthier and more sustainable working conditions to his workers.

“The real test is not what you do in a short life span on Earth, but it’s what remains afterwards.”

– Jim Cochran
