Café del Volcán

Top choice


in French Concession

Tiny Café del Volcán offers a refuge from the bustle of Yongkang Rd. The minimalist cafe has just a few wooden box tables sharing the space with the roasting machine. The coffee here is excellent and its signature and very aromatic beans come from the owner's coffee plantation in Guatemala – in the family for 120 years.

Choose from pour-over or cafetière (French press) brewing methods. Other single-origin beans are from Ethiopia, Kenya, Panama and Yunnan.
