In 2003, a coffee-maniac group's
passion gave birth to "Coffee Only",
which recently moved to the area near DaAn Park
to be able to provide a bigger space. Although
there are numerous coffee shops scattered around
Taipei city, Coffee Only's dedication to original-flavoured
coffee deserves checking out. Coffee beans from
different parts of the world are roasted here
for 36 hours before serving. To provide the best
quality of coffee, a fixed quantity of beans are
roasted each time and will be tossed out if not
served within seven days.
Only selects coffee beans from locations in Asia,
Africa, and Central and South America. The coffee
is prepared with a filter in front of the guests,
allowing them to witness the process and Coffee
Only's moment of truth.
Iced Coffee, Irish Coffee and Italian Coffee varieties
are also offered here. The owner proudly recommends
one made with a Dutch Filter Coffee Pot. It takes
48 hours to produce only 12 glasses of Specialty
Iced Coffee (NT$160 or NT$100 for members).
