I seriously have NO idea why they named this coffee shop ” A Twosome Place”. Is it just me that thinks this name is weird???
When I first mentioned this to Kaden, Kaden said to me that this coffee shop was a pretty famous place. I was like, “WHAT?!”.
But now, I’m used to it. It’s still weird to me. But I’m used to the fact that it’s a weird name and it’s a bit less weird if you say it shortened in the Korean way that everyone in Korea says it. Everyone just calls it Twosome. As in 투썸. Which does seem a bit better cause the word twosome does mean a pair or a pair of people together. I just think putting “A” and “Place” before and after is a bit awkward. It’s like saying it’s “a pair of people place”. I don’t know, maybe I’m just really weird.
Anyways, when I first went to Twosome, I fell in love with their cakes. Their cakes were not too sweet but soooooo delicious that every time Kaden and I would go to this “place’ for coffee, I would order a slice of cake no matter how full I was. I would try a different slice every time I went and would want more. It was like one slice was never enough. Then I fell in love with their Royal Milk Tea. It was the best milk tea I had tried (hot or iced it didn’t matter) and a slice of cake with a cup of milk tea would just be the best treat for me.
I was a “Starbucks Girl” if you know what I mean. I would always drink Starbucks coffee when I was out and nothing else. Well, if I was in Canada then I would either have Starbucks or Tim Hortons. When I first came to Korea, there wasn’t a Starbucks near my place. There was only “A Twosome Place” and a local small coffee shop that a lady ran by herself. So I really didn’t have a choice on my way to work. Then after I moved in with Kaden, I went back to Starbucks. It was like I had returned home.
Now, it’s back to Twosome. There isn’t a Starbucks near my in-law’s place, but there is a Twosome. Recently, when Kaden and I went to have some coffee. We found out that they had a new menu called the Cold Brew coffee. It was the best black coffee we had tried in a while.
So when we heard that they sold the extract of the cold brew coffee for 14000 won KRW, we bought a bottle and brought it home.
This bottle of the coffee extract is good for 6 months in the fridge and is easy to make. Mix the ratio at 1:4, the extract 1 and water 4.
I love the flavor of this coffee so much that I want to drink two cups a day. I try and hold back, though. If you’ve tried this already, you probably already know that there’s a hint of chocolate flavor in this coffee. I love that. It’s not the sweet chocolate taste but the scent of cocoa. The coffee itself is very bold but very smooth and is really easy to drink. Very rich in flavor but not too strong and bitter.
This cold brew coffee from Twosome is right now, currently, my favorite coffee and I wish I could send some to Canada for my friends to try.
