The Coffee Academics
With delicious coffee all too rare a luxury in chain-dominated Hong Kong, it’s with great anticipation we welcome premium roasters The Coffee Academics to the fray with their just-opened, light and airy, industrial-chic cafe in bustling Causeway Bay.
Serving traditional lattes, cappuccinos and espresso con pannas made with 100% Arabica beans and heirloom brands Typica and Bourbon, TCA also offers immersion coffees like Jamaica Blue Mountain RSW Estate (a tea-like aroma with blackberry and hint of chocolate) along with an ‘inspired’ few like fiery must-try The Mexican, with spices and Tabasco.
Coffee connoisseurs can request cups made to order, plus there’s also Bellagio iced/hot chocolate and infused leaf-teas (like the Thunberg with green rooibos, lemongrass and ginger) for the already energised, and even a decaffeinated babyccino for tots.
Looking to snack as well as sip? Light delights from Mexico, France and Spain include quesadillas, lobster brioche and tapas (like chorizo al vino), followed by guilty pleasures including macarons, affogato, carrot cake and Swiss couverture chocolates. And for those craving a caffeine fix or sweet indulgence between visits, their blends (both tea and coffee) and chocolates are available for purchase, as are homewares, coffee-infused skincare and coffee classes to master your craft.
