After our sad rejection at Anemohi nearby (no photos allowed there), we went to a more established, friendly place in the area: Felt.

Felt is a fairly small cafe that is essentially just one room on a street corner. Seating mostly along the windows with a little bit of an odd empty space in the middle.
The design is super simple and modern, bright and easy, giving a bit of pop-up feel. But it seems to work.
The pour-over preparation was all well-done. Filter and dripper were rinsed with hot water, the Acai scales and timers closely monitored and the barista took full attention to the pour.
As a result, we had a really smooth cup with notes of sweet red berry (From Guatemala if memory serves right..).
Felt is a good spot to stop by when exploring or walking along the redeveloped railway park throughout Mapo / Yeonnam – highly recommended.
