Finding good coffee in China can be a challenge unless your standard of good coffee is Starbucks or Costa Coffee. Nowadays things are getting better as more and more Chinese people are discovering a love for coffee and more and more foreigners are coming in to the country.

As a Melbourian, I love my coffee in high quality and frequent doses so it was a dream when I found an amazing barista called PuYa.

She doesn’t speak a lot of English and much to my detriment I only speak the most basic Mandarin but we communicate through a love of coffee and beautiful latte art.

Sometimes when they get in new flavors they like me to try them out. Looks beautiful, tastes a lot better if you actually like taro
