CHINA / CULTURE - Coffee scene in Shanghai

I have to confess that my biggest how-very-futile concern before moving to Shanghai was whether I would be able to find decent coffee. We had been spoilt in Amsterdam, living just across the park from the beautiful (and award-winning) Scandinavian Embassy. I knew from my multiple trips to China that Starbucks was plentiful, but I did not expect to find any decent craft coffee in Shanghai.  It seems I had grossly underestimated just how well traveled many young Chinese are, and how the Chinese ancient obsession with craftsmanship can lend itself to superb coffee-making. I sat down with Anna from the ''Shanghai Coffee Daily" Instagram account, who meticulously dissects local coffee venues.
