On the second day of our Seoul adventure, we had coffee before heading out to the train station.  As luck would have it, we found another themed cafe in the basement of our hotel

From afar, I thought the name of the cafe was “Angelinus” but when we got closer, it was “Angel in Us“.

The cafe was had cozy, homey feel.  A splash of brown here and there made up the interiors. I was amazed that they had real trees inside.  Made me feel like I’m in a garden.

Since this was another themed cafe, a myriad of angels and wings adorned the place.

I love their “winged” sofas. 🙂

Their wooden chairs carved to look like you have wings when you sit down.

We each had cup of coffee and a piece of bagel.  Nothing spectacular with their bagel but their coffee was good.  It was dark and rich.

My Husband always orders either a Cafe Mocha or a Latte but I’ve consistently ordered Cafe Americano (or a Long Black if not available) especially when I’m trying out a new brand of coffee.  I always like drinking black coffee (with 1-2 teaspoons of sugar or sometimes none) so I can truly taste the pureness of the coffee.

Angel in Us Coffee uses their patented convection roasting technology which means that each coffee bean is roasted on a bed of hot air. Convection is a superior method of heat transfer that results to a fully developed and evenly roasted coffee bean.  That’s why when I had their Cafe Americano, all I tasted was the richness of the coffee–no burnt taste.

As we enjoyed our cuppa, we noticed that the locals sipped their coffees via their stirrers.  I had a looked at my stirrer and noticed that it had a hole.  I never really noticed that before.  Most of the cafes I’ve been to seemed to only offer ordinary stirrers (no holes).  I found out from some of my tweetmates that in some countries, only stirrers with holes are available in their cafes.  The advantage of sipping your coffee is that it doesn’t stain your teeth as compared to drinking it straight from the cup.

If you are ever in Seoul and find this cafe, try it and have coffee with wings.

    FYI- Angel In Us Coffee is actually a chain. We have many in Daegu, South Korea and I love them! Although it is themed with angels, you don’t have to go specifically Seoul to enjoy a nice cup of their coffee or, my favorite, their green tea lattes! 🙂
