Graph coffee

Graph+Coffee+Chiang+MaiIf you come to visit Thailand, you have to stop by Chiang Mai. It’s a cute city with a lot to offer. Cool trendy bars, restaurants and coffee places. Even though Thailand isn’t exactly famous for their coffee, I can say the dark battery acid did me good. While preparing my trips I always make a Pinboard on Pinterest with places to go in every city & town. So every morning – afternoon and evening I choose a new place to eat – drink or chill out.

While walking through Chiang Mai you can find the cutest mini coffee places, but one just stuck to me. Graph is a small industrial looking coffee cafe with great coffee, hot and iced. With it’s intimate atmosphere and vintage interior you can chill here for hours. Hearing the sound of the fresh beans going into the coffee machine and smell the homemade baked goods.

BEANS, COTTON & THINGS

Portrait is one of my favorite stores in Haarlem, Netherlands. It´s a place where people come to work, shop, talk and to have a nice cup of coffee. Karen, Daisy and Rogier created a space where small  & local entrepreneurships, fashion labels and interior comes together.

Every inch of this old horse stable is designed and looks amazing. If you visit Haarlem, you definitely have to stop and drink a coffee here. Just to enjoy the store and the lovely store owners.

Amazing Classified Repulse Bay

Classified-Repulse-Bay_Classified-Repulse-Bay_Entrance_restaurant-cafe-food-interiorThe comfy Repulse Bay, located in Hong Kong, is the latest outpost of Classified series of cafés. Showing a new industrial-chic look, redefining the standard coffee shops. The firm Substance got inspired by the cafés at the seaside, using the marine blue tiles, rustic timber flooring and lobster-pot inspired ceiling lights. On the menu you can find shrimp, chorizo jambalaya and organic Thai quinoa salad. Or enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy a spot of watching people in one of the two swinging sofas.

Caribou Coffee’s five-story Pinterest board

cariboupinterestmoa-coffee-store-advertising-pinerest-brandIm loving this idea of making a 64 foot-tall Pinterest board to promote a Coffee blend “Caribou Coffee” at the Mall of America’s rotunda.

“It’s so big — a six-foot man only takes up half of that first pin,” said Michele Vig, vp of marketing for Caribou Coffee. ”People were standing there  saying it’s awesome. It’s five stories tall at Mall of America.”

The Pinterest wall has 2 video screens, looking like a pin, filled with user-generated content: tweet #CaribouInspires and it will appear on the board over the next week. There’s also a photobooth for selfies, a stage to perform to “motivate fans to pursue their passions”  and a huge mug of Caribou Coffee.
