The Sheung Wan neighbourhood in Hong Kong has a congregation of great coffee shops, all within walking distance of each other. Perhaps this is the reason why a lot of expats are settling in the area. Or, maybe the other way around, that these coffee shops are meeting the demand from the weary expats seeking quick fixes for the drudgery of daily office life in Hong Kong. Barista Jam is a top notch coffee shop within the Sheung Wan area and is definitely worth your visit. Especially, if you find yourself in a long queue at the nearby Brew Bros. or the Cupping Room.
