Being good US coffee snobs, we searched high and low for a good espresso based coffee in Hong Kong. By far the best coffee we found was at the Wellington based Fuel Espresso.
It was the only cafe with a solid americano (what they call the Wellington Americano). For some reason most of the coffee shops in HK pour their Americanos weak – more of the unclean water then the mouthwatering variety! Fuel also poured a quite tasty cappuccinos piccolos and espressos.
Fuel has two locations in HK (and a new spot in Shanghai). We frequented the one on the third floor of the IFC mall. It was a cozy spot in a crowded environment; featuring a pleasant staff and excellent Jazz music in the background.
