[Seoul’s best coffee shops] Dukes Coffee Showroom; 듁스커피 쇼룸

It’s Saturday and I set out for my first cup of coffee. A light breeze gently caresses my shoulders as I walk down the street, and the calming light of the morning sun warms me up. In an area that is usually filled with a cacophony of sounds, an unusual silence has fallen. Everyone must still be asleep on this Saturday morning, I think to myself, as I enjoy this serene moment in time.


Dukes Coffee Roasters is a wholesale specialty coffee roasting company based in Australia, with a cozy showroom located in the Mapo district (마포구) of Seoul.

Opening hours
Weekdays 9:00am – 6:00pm
Weekends and holidays 11:00am – 7:00pm


The Dukes Showroom in Seoul offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

The open-bar concept allows for easy and natural conversations to flow between customer and barista; baristas who are warm, bright, and easy to speak with.

I hope that our customers feel comfortable chatting with the baristas and find the place friendly. I also want them to find coffee to be much easier than they expected it to be. We’re coffee experts, so people should feel comfortable to ask us anything about coffee.

Stella Kim, FOH Manager (Showroom Manager)


With a variety of coffees to choose from, you may find yourself at a loss of where to start and which to pick.

The knowledgeable baristas are there to help. This is their domain, their realm of expertise. Sharing their knowledge on each of the roasts, they’ll help you find the perfect cup of coffee.

The Dukes roastery in Melbourne produces beautiful, freshly roasted specialty coffee each day with an unmatched attention to detail.
