This coffee house is located pretty far away from where I used to stay in Shenzhen. They are at Shekou are which is around RMB$80 cab ride from my place in Futian district. Shekou is a place where there are loads of expats, reason is there are factories in that area and also there are direct ferries to Hong Kong International Airport where there are more flight options to reach their home/destinations. Shenzhen International Airport is practically a domestic airport with a few international flights… The gate for the international flights shows… small and a lot less grand than that of the domestic!
Ok enough of bitching. Maan Coffee I’ve heard about it many times but only managed to visit that place a couple of months back. Found the place with a friend who drove, and parking was really bad. We had to literally beg the security to let us park outside the coffee house. We managed to find a lot and then check out the place.
Taste: 5/5. Latte was pretty well done. Espresso was pulled well and milk was at the right temperature. A lot better than the other Korean chain joint Hollys. Love the sugared toast that is served together with the coffee. Very thoughtful. Didn’t try the food as we were there after a filling lunch.
Portion: Good size cup.
Service: 5/5. I have to say they are really good for their service.
Ambience: 5/5. Full points! Renovation is not cheap!
Price: RMB$28 per cup.
RTE: If I’m in that area, of course!
