What happens when a Thai boy falls in love with a Japanese girl?
She’s the girl, Bom Sathukarn’s wife, and the name of the serene coffee bar tucked away in Llankelly Place, Potts Point.
As I sip the warm Amazake, I’m surprised at the stream of customers who greet Bom by name. The soft-spoken man says good morning in return.
I come back for a matcha latte the next day for a respite from the craziness of Kings Cross. “I picked the furniture,” Bom tells me. He’s a graphic designer. I love the quiet, understated elegance.
“Kapunka,” a lady says with a slight bow of her head. A jingle of coins and she walks away, coffee in hand.
Do you have a coffee love story?
