It's official. It's been medically proven that I'm addicted to caffeine. I can get migraine-like headaches if I don't get enough of it per day.
It's nothing to be proud of, but it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside that proper-ish coffee is finally coming to Hong Kong and that I don't have to resort to Starbucks and Nescafe in cans (I would rather that than Pacific) in all the places I frequent (Sheung Wan, Central, Causeway Bay and even North Point). Gone are the days when I had to lug myself on a train then walk all the way to TST East for a coffee (I'm talking about Crema, circa 2005).
I'd always been a fan of Fuel Espresso in IFC - it was, I would say, the beginning of the real coffee movement in HK. Yeah, you could count Cafe Corridor, my previous Causeway Bay lifesaver, and its Central predecessor Coffee Assembly (kudos for roasting in HK) but it was Fuel that really got people talking about espresso-based coffee as something 'normal' rather than super niche (maybe thanks to the (hideous) mall location?).
