Accro Coffee A Hidden Gem In the City: To Fight For Your Dreams Photo: Accro coffee & Winelist.HK ∫ Interview by Winnie Ng & Text by Winnie Ng Yuen Long, locating in the Northwest of the New Territories, is perhaps a quite distant place for people living in Kowloon and on Hong Kong Island. For real coffee lovers, however, it is a place that should not be missed. Accro Coffee was founded by a post-80s young Barista and Coffee Roaster Tsuyoshi Mok in 2010 after his return from learning the craft in Taiwan. It is a small shop with less than 20 seats. When you walk along the street, you may have not even noticed there’s a coffee shop as it is located at a quiet corner. However I am sure by the smell of coffee and baking cakes will make you aware of a nearby coffee shop. With the passion of brewing good coffee and the dreams of promoting coffee culture in Hong Kong, the little shop with specialty in Siphon and Hand-drip coffee has started to attract customers – first from the local town and later further away, extending to coffee lovers from all over Hong Kong who are willing to have a try on their good quality coffee.
