Passion for coffee
The Soloist Coffee Co. is a coffee bar located in one of the old hutongs near Tiananmen Square. It can go unnoticed as its on a side street, but its worth visiting if you can find it. It was opened by a group of young people passionate about coffee to serve a mix of the world's best coffee beans served in a variety of ways, from traditional espresso to the more complex Chemex process. They also have special coffee tasting and coffee making courses.
