UCC Coffee Roastery
Japanese coffee culture lands at Ekkamai’s community mall.
From Japanese coffee giant UCC, the world’s “longest-selling ready-to-drink canned coffee brand,” according to the Guinness World Records, comes this new cafe in Ekkamai’s Gateway mall. The brand’s Thailand flagship, UCC Coffee Roastery, is all about manifesting Japan’s perfectionist coffee culture in Bangkok.
At this clean-looking enterprise, decked out with white tiles and wooden furniture, customers can sip on coffee drinks with extraordinary latte art (B190), created by house barista Nutthinee “Ri” Jearranan—champion of the Thailand National Latte Art competition in 2019 and 2020—or a special concoction like Full Moon Pa-ngan (espresso, tonic water and lychee juice topped with fresh mint and lychee; B200).
There are five brewing methods available at the slow bar—siphon, hand drip, French press, water drip and ice-brewed coffee—with three single-origin beans to choose from: Thai Honey Catimor and Bourbon (B180), Guatemala El Durazno and Costa Rica Tarrazu Tobosi Copey (both B200). The brand expects to add more beans to the menu soon, too.
Looking for something to munch on? Go for the bacon roll sausage hot chili dog with coffee mayo (B240), the classic Monte Cristo (a ham and cheese sandwich with maple syrup; B250) or homemade Basque cheesecake (B180).
