This shop is solely dedicated to coffee,
with 30 to 40 kinds of coffee beans on the menu. Coffee
beans are roasted daily to provide freshness to customers.
Whether you're a coffee rookie or addict, you can find
something here to suit your needs. The selection is
quite complete, from top-grade Jamaica Blue Mountain
No. 1 coffee (with certificate) and Hawaii Kona Extra
Fancy (NT$600-NT$2,400 per pound) to more common varieties
of coffee, like Colombia, Ethiopia Djimmah Mocha and
Indonesia Sumatra Mandhelin (NT$240-320 per pound).
Indonesia Sumatra Kopi Leak (with certificate) and El
Salvador Hot Spring beans are also available here. If
customers can't find the beans they're looking for here,
Original Coffee's management will try and locate them.
Because the shop only sells fresh-roasted beans, customers
should call in advance for orders, even if it's only
half a pound. Coffee pots, grinders, European rock sugar
and coffee filters, along with other accessories, are
all carried here.
