As coffee’s various flavours rather than one

As coffee consumption is increasing
enormously over the last couples of years, the health effects concerning the
coffee drinking has gained a wide attention across the nation. in a journal called “Heart” it showed
that people drinking 3 to 5 cups of coffee a day were 41 % less likely to show signs of coronary
artery calcium than non-coffee drinkers
(VOL. 3 3, NO. 5) and  As of 2015, there
were an approximately 49,600 Cafes in South Korea, and 17,000 Starbucks cafes
in Seoul, making Seoul’s coffee-per-capita greater than that
of Seattle or San Francisco. In 2013, it was estimated that
around 657,000 tons of coffee were sold in South Korea, with a per capita
coffee consumption of about 2.3 kg per person. (Gray) (Kim p1-15 )

From what Choi Ik Chang of Coffee
Libre (a Korean specialty coffee chain), this is another important event
on the modern coffee scene after the instant coffee became popular. Nevertheless,
Choi Ik Chang says that “full-scale growth isn’t seen until after 1989, at a
time when Korea faced high economic increase; people’s income grew, and they
had enough money to improve their quality of life, releasing them up for the significant
experience of travel. People began to acknowledge coffee’s various flavours
rather than one generic taste”.

Theme cafes are another
think bringing popularity to the coffee culture in south Korea. Unlike other
cities I know of, where you have a Starbucks at every corner, Seoul not only
has a bigger number of coffee shops, there are also many independent cafes that
are quite unique in appearance popular themed cafes like the infamous
Hello Kitty Café, Charlie Brown Café, Dog cafe Bauhouse, the Raccoon Cafe Blind Alley Blind Alley is I believe Seoul’s first raccoon
cafe. The cafe is separated into two parts and the idea is that first, you
order something to drink or eat, and then you can go to the next room where you
get to play with raccoons!!
