Yest Works NEW!

With its dark wooden frontage and walls lined with small black and brown bottles, this place could double as an old-school apothecary or a branch of Aesop’s, but those aren’t pills or cosmetics they’re selling. The bottles are filled with beans sourced from Chiang Rai and farflung coffee-growing countries, which can be blended and purchased to brew at home or ordered for takeaway drinks. They do, however, approach coffee like scientists, charting their eight different roasts on precise flavor diagrams.
41/1 Sukhumvit Soi 23, 090-219-3142. Open Mon-Fri 7am-6pm; Sat-Sun 10am-6pm
