Hong Kong’s pioneer of coffee culture, the premium coffeehouse brand The Coffee Academïcs opens a pop-up in Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui, the brand’s first branch outside of Hong Kong Island, bringing “Hong Kong blend” state-of-the-art coffee-making technology and new food menu to one of the city’s buzziest shopping mall.

The pop-up shop will open for one year from June 2014 onwards, offering the city’s coffee lovers a perfect hangout.

The new pop-up offers the much anticipated “Hong Kong Blend”, which is a coffee that has been custom blended by Hong Kongers for Hong Kongers based on research conducted on how Hong Kongers from all sectors of society like their coffee to taste. Proudly roasted in Hong Kong, Hong Kong Blend is an exquisite blend of 5 single origin coffees from South America, Asia and Central America Honduras Fair Trade Organic coffee beans. This blend is as rich in flavour as Hong Kong is in history. The inspiring mix of sweet dark raisin fruit, hints of citrus and the rich complexity is balanced with a smooth chocolate yet nutty finish — the ultimate reflection of Hong Kong’s energetic, diverse and harmonious culture.

The Coffee Academïcs has identified the true flavours of a “Hong Kong Blend” coffee, allowing all Hong Kongers to enjoy a coffee blend that has been customised to the taste buds of the local culture. The Coffee Academïcshouse blend is also available at the Harbour City pop-up, customers can choose from the two different blends when ordering.

Aspired to offer unique experiences for coffee lovers in each and every of The Coffee Academïcs’ branches, the Harbour City pop-up introduces the city’s very first Victoria Arduino 388 Black Eagle espresso machine which promises to bring state-of-the-art coffee-making technology to Hong Kongers. The VA388 Black Eagle espresso machine incorporates World Barista Championship competition standard T3 technology which ensures thermal stability and creates consistently excellent espresso. The exciting, smart software enables the Black Eagle’s built-in gravimetric weighing system that precisely controls shot volumes and beverage mass. Now everyone can enjoy the perfect cup of the coffee promised by world-class technology.

The Harbour City pop-up offers exclusive new artisan pizzas including Salami Milano, Mushoom, Arugula Pizza (HK$128) and Proscuitto di Parma, Eggplant, Mozzarella Pizza (HK$128).

What’s also on offer is a selection of mouth-watering gourmet grilled sandwiches that are also on exclusive offer at Harbour City pop-up. Try Prosciutto di Parma, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Arugula Panini (HK$78); Smoked Salmon, Lemon Pepper Cream Panini (HK$78) and the Forest Mushroom, Mozzarella and Cheddar Panini. These exciting new options will be served along The Coffee Academïcs’ much loved regular menu.
