Italian café by day, a cocktail bar by night, this Milanese-style all-day establishment designed by JJ Acuna / Bespoke Studio brings the coffee culture of Milan to Hong Kong’s quaint and trendy neighbourhood, Happy Valley. The 900 sq. ft. coffee-to-cocktail destination officially opened in June 2021 as the first and sole distributor of the famed Italian GRISO coffee beans in Asia, bringing authentic Milanese-style coffee to Hong Kong.
These influences gave the designers the opportunity to reimagine Milan’s history and culture by infusing the space with bespoke hand-made Milanese design elements from local and international artists, amplifying the brand’s GRISO coffee monopoly position. With a narrative concept that marries various design elements of Milan from the 20th century with a refreshing new approach to complement the GRISO coffee variations, snacks and innovative late-night cocktails, Coffeelin is designed to be the new coffee-to-cocktail hub of the neighbourhood.
