Update January 2018: the cafe is closed. The boutique / store is still open, but no more coffee.
Following the original review from July 2017:
We stumbled upon a relatively new place in Hannam, and obviously needed to check it out: Cafe Dokoro.

The Cafe is in the same house as a craft leather shop / boutique (Yurt), and it’s a beautifully converted house with space stretching across 3 floors and a nice front yard.
The coffee selection at time of visit was ‘surprising’: beans were espresso beans only. And they don’t even offer espresso based drinks…
The preparation of the hand-drip was otherwise totally fine. A rinsed white filter, beans and water was weighed, and the pour was (even though quick) pretty thoughtful. Really what it should be.
The result was nevertheless a below average cup of coffee, very bitter tasting, not much else (even though I had it on ice which generally makes it lighter already).
I really hope they solve the bean sourcing, because then they could be a nice addition in this otherwise coffee-neglected corner.
