One of the big hangouts in Gochang is the local coffee shop, Conga. The owners are super cool and lots of fun. The wife, Dongha, speaks really good English. She’s a lot of fun too. The husband, Kongsup, has international ambitions and likes to travel to Europe. His love for coffee has taken him to many places, most recently Italy. They provide a small amount of sophistication and relaxation in a very rural, very Korean town.
The shop itself boasts many art pieces and sculptures as well as living plants. The front of the shop is covered in windows and fills the cafe with light.
They have a roaster and roast their own coffee beans. They make some delightful drinks too. I usually get an iced Americano but their kiwi or grapefruit juice is killer.
