All the Coffee in Korea (An Evolving List)

Would you like a little T'aegukki with your coffee?

Would you like a little T’aegukki with your coffee?

How much is “All the Coffee in Korea” anyway? That answer, to anyone who has walked this country’s occasionally wide, but often narrow streets, is about as obvious as a large, hairy, broad-shouldered waygookin is in a sea of small, curious hangookin children.

A lot (just in case the comment above didn’t make a lot of sense).

Below you will find the evolving (but, by no means conclusive, exhausting or complete… yet) list of places that sell coffee in South Korea. What businesses does that include, exactly? There’s coffee at GS25 and 7-Eleven. Will they be on the list? Probably not, unless they start employing honest-to-goodness baristas. Which I’m not counting out.

Here are some (arbitrary) rules for how a business makes the cut. Don’t see a shop on the list that you think absolutely should be there? Let me know in the comments!

And finally… why the hell am I doing this? I’ll answer that how many of my students might… kunyang (directly translated as “just,” but more like “just because.”). Plus, I really like coffee.
