Blogger Shane Horan (rockyroadtravel.com) went to North Korea, where he discovered Kumrung Coffee shop in capital city of Pyongyang.
Says Horan: “Dubbed North Korea’s first “hipster cafe”, the Kumrung would certainly not look out of place in Seoul or Melbourne. Complete with exposed brick and chalk board menus, Kumrung’s range of vanilla latte’s and caramel macchiatos are very Instagram worthy. Its head barista trained in China and even flies in coffee beans once a month.”
Horan noted prices were very high for locals but not in comparison with what the rest of the world charges.
