People who love coffee and people who love music have one thing in common: they love life. The bits of relaxation and goodness in life are concentrated at Riverside Coffee, a café located on the lakeshore near Yangzhou’s International Expo Center.
It’s actually easy to describe the birth of this café. The coffee loving Sun Guangfeng and the music loving Qiao Yufeng wanted to do something together, and once they hit it off they partnered up to open Riverside Coffee.

说起Riverside Coffee的咖啡，即便是对咖啡一无所知的门外汉也能品尝出它的美味。不同于星巴克此类快消连锁咖啡店，Riverside Coffee对外宣传的是精品咖啡文化。每一杯咖啡，都是现场现磨。冰滴咖啡、手冲咖啡、虹吸咖啡等多种咖啡冲泡方法都有。
When talking about Riverside Coffee’s coffee, even people who know nothing about coffee can taste its delicious flavor. Different from chain coffee stores like Starbucks, what Riverside Coffee publicizes is boutique coffee culture. Each cup of coffee is ground in front of you. The café has various coffee brewing methods including cold brew coffee, hand brewed coffee, and siphoned coffee.
The highly knowledgeable coffee aficionado Sun Guangfeng says someone who truly understands coffee will order a single origin coffee, not add anything, and taste the purest flavor of a single origin coffee from some production area. The flavor in your mouth is no longer bitter, but sour and fragrant.
