Useful Phrases for Coffee Shops

Always remember, if you don't feel comfortable speaking, you can simply show the server your phone and point the the phrase you need. 

Things you need to know when you order:
  • The barista will want to know if you want the coffee hot or cold. In the summer they will assume you want all drinks cold is you don't clarify.
  • American style drip coffee is usually not available, so you will ask for hand-drip.
  • Although the names of coffee are western, you will need to use the Korean pronunciation.
  • Most stores do not have decaf, low-fat milk, or soy milk.
  • In Korea, coffee is best considered a slow food. It's not about speed. Don't expect to be in and out of a fancy coffee shop fast.
  • The local taste prefers a lighter, weaker coffee. If you want strong coffee you will need to let the barista know.
  • Latte's are often JUST milk. If you want coffee in your latte you will need to clarify this.
