西成珈琲工作室 Nishinari Coffee

By Jocelyn J.J. 林姵妏

Nishinari’s owner’s passion for coffee, discovered during his university days, eventually developed into the opening of this coffee house six years ago. Frequented by loyal repeat customers and nearby residents, it caters to connoisseurs and offers high-quality coffees made from beans roasted in-house and sourced from all over the world, including Columbia, Kenya, Honduras, India, Guatemala, Indonesia and Panama.

He welcomes customers who express an interest in coffee and can introduce them to various flavors according to their taste preferences. The changing coffee selection usually includes about 15 different options with the specialty being hand-poured black coffee made with his own blends (NT$130-150). These are divided into light-medium roast varieties like Dimtu Coffee (NT$140) and medium and medium-dark roast types like Golden Mandheling Coffee (NT$140). There’s also a NT$250 two-hour all-you-can-drink black coffee offer, featuring varieties that the owner handpicks for customers, with each cup being different, in a concept similar to Japanese omakase dining. Coffee beans are sold under the cafe’s brand on a B2C and B2B basis with prices for half-pound bags (227g) ranging from NT$300 to $1,000.

Italian-style coffees such as Americano, Cappuccino, Espresso, and Latte (NT$110-140) are also available, in addition to some teas like the caffeine-free Rooibos Tea (NT$100). Desserts (NT$80-110) like Roselle Basque Cheesecake, made by the owner’s wife, are popular with customers, too. Some visitors enjoy taking pictures of the café’s Japanese-style interior and exterior decor, inspired by the owner’s interest in and study of Japanese culture and language, as well as his time living in Japan. The warmly lit interior, filled with wooden tables and chairs for about 14, and other decorations assembled by the owner and his wife make this an intimate, photogenic place to enjoy coffee in.
