[buzz KOREA Tour: Sancheong-Busan] Barista Experience at The Busan Coffee Gallery

We are now on our Day 3 and the last day of buzz KOREA Tour: Sancheong-Busan. We woke up early as we wanted to use the sauna since it was free to hotel guest/s and it was my birthday. 🙂 We went there at 6AM and there were already many ahjummas (aunties) and they were very friendly to us as Jess (Indonesian, my partner in crime throughout the tour) and I were the only obvious foreigners as the others on the tour were Japanese and Chinese.

The amazing view of Haeundae Beach while soaking on the hot pools and while watching a movie.

After the sauna, we hurriedly went back to our rooms to shower and had breakfast, and then met at the lobby at 8:30AM to avoid traffic as there was a marathon that will pass by our hotel that morning.

First destination was The Busan Coffee Gallery. The gallery had a quite collection of coffee equipments and such from the past. We were able to experience extracting coffee by ourselves and hand dripping.

My favorite would be the making of our own hot chocolate latte and then making a design on the milk bubble on top. And here is my design….

We were also able to taste the Gold Coffee (yes the one on top is gold) that was featured on CNN.

And finally the awarding of the 4 people who had actively shared the tour via SNS as the “Best Buzz”, and coincidentally the 4 of us were sitting on the same side. 🙂  We had presents from buzz Korea and KTO.
