Coffees roasted in house make their way to numerous brewing devices, including a Ground Control machine.


Meanwhile, the shop’s food and drink menus specifically aim for Korean-inspired items such as the Seoul Iced Coffee, modeled after the sort of coffee served in Korean dabangs, tea and coffee houses that predate modern coffee shop concepts in Korea.

Haan Coffee Co-Founder Hong Shin said “We wanted to take this historical and beloved style of coffee, modernize and elevate it for everyone else to enjoy,” he said. “In other Korean coffee shops and bakeries in the U.S. they call it ‘Dabang Iced Coffee.'”


Creative approaches to Korean flavors at Haan also include SuJungGwa latte, named and flavored after a traditional Korean dessert tea made with ginger, cinnamon, persimmon and dates.
