Some people love coffee first thing in the morning, others love it for an afternoon pick-me-up, and some even drink coffee all day long. No matter which type of coffee drinker you are, you already know that it’s important to have a good coffee shop you can rely on for quality brews whenever you’re in need of a caffeine fix. Fortunately, there are a handful of new Bangkok coffee shops for you to check out, so read on to discover more.
4th Floor Drip Bar
A small café decked out with dried flowers, lush greenery, assorted books, and small knick-knacks, 4th Floor Drip Bar is a cosy new spot tucked away in Phrom Phrong. Here, they offer a range of cold brews and interesting mix of caffeine elixirs. The recommended signature drink is chor ginnaree, a blend of home-brewed black coffee, roselle, and ginger. For those who have a sweet tooth, try toob-tub, milk coffee with peanut butter chocolates, and a swirl of Thai toffee.
