Have you tried Jeju coffee? Jeju Korea Coffee Farm
Seogwipo, Jeju, Korea
Coffee cultivation in Korea? Someone said that it was a difficult task. But it was not impossible at all. Before the spread of the coffee culture, those who had established the site in Jeju and quietly built a coffee plantation. The efforts of those years appeared as a valuable fruit of the birth of “Korea Coffee”. Jeju coffee, look into the new world.
Namwon-eup, Seogwipo-si, located in the southern part of Jeju. It is a place full of warm energy, so there are few days when it falls below freezing even in winter. This is a non-heating (vinyl house without temperature control) facility that is perfect for growing coffee trees.
Next to Taeheung Elementary School in Namwon-eup, a simple building with a red roof stands out. It is a cafe run by Korea Coffee Farm. A plastic house built next to it. Here, coffee trees producing 'Korea Coffee' from Jeju are growing. As soon as you enter the plastic house, moisture comes off the hook. No matter how good the day is, I didn't expect it to be so humid. There are trees all over the green house, and it feels like you have come to a coffee tree forest. There are a lot of seedlings sprouting from the coffee beans on the floor. It's still winter outside, but the spring is bright here.
It seems that the coffee scent coming up like a tickling nose invites you to the new world. At first, I wanted to feel a sour taste, and then it spread smoothly and the aftertaste was neat without any other taste. Besides, it seems to be the first time that the coffee tastes light. Although I wasn't a coffee enthusiast, I kept feeling 'fresh' while emptying a cup of coffee.
“Since green beans are usually transported by boat, it takes about 4 to 5 months. During that period, the green beans may smell bad or scenty. KOREA COFFEE is stored in a parchment state, and it is fresh and neat because it is roasted with only the necessary amount. It doesn't have any other flavor, and the balance of various flavors makes it feel lighter. ” Nods are nodded by the explanation of CEO Roh. KOREA COFFEE, is a taste that I want to keep looking for.
While tasting Korea coffee, Roh's wife brings another coffee. Usually, one or two more cups of different coffee are served, but you can compare the taste of Korean coffee and coffee of different origin. By comparison, you can definitely feel the difference in taste. The more you drink, the more fresh the Korean coffee is.
The cafe at Korea Coffee Farm is like a painter's studio. Thanks to Roh's wife, who majored in Oriental painting, an artistic atmosphere is always evident with the scent of coffee. Artworks with unique textures hung on one side of the wall stand out. Looking closely, it is a picture of coffee beans, shells, and powder. It is another transformation of coffee.
