The Freshest Hipster Coffee Hotspot

As long as there are caffeine aficionados in every corner of this world, we’ll never lack individuals who are doing everything possible to pursue the best cup of coffee. With that in mind, there will never be any shortage of super cool coffee spots striving to give the very best to their patrons, and Elephant Grounds is certainly one of them.

Located on one of Hong Kong’s chic streets, this social hinge hotspot is so street-interactive that it instantly transforms from a simple coffee shop to a street-like neighborhood. In other words, this modest strategy is based on reflecting the coffee shop as an open and welcoming setting that allows patrons to interact with the street.

Clients are able to walk into a brilliantly-lit environment that maximizes natural daylight that is impressively left to penetrate the entire café through large mechanical glass windows. The café also creatively takes advantage of the pedestrian-oriented street by placing humble timber benches that double up both as exterior and interior seating, especially when the windows are totally raised on sunny days.

On top of the cool concept that is depicted in the café’s design, the shop serves a unique coffee menu that include double shots of espresso, smoke milk affogato, house-churned vanilla ice cream, as well as fine Sumatran and Brazilian java and of course locally-sourced ingredients.
