The first thing that catches the eye walking into the organic coffee shop Sumerian is the sheer number of coffee brewing devices. Near Beijing Road, the store has been a beacon for coffee lovers in the area since it opened three months ago. The shop's owners, Christin Wu and David Seminsky, specialize in green beans from Ethiopia, Brazil and Indonesia. The beans are available by the bag (from 178 yuan/US$28.2 for 250 grams of Sumatra Fair Trade Organic to 298 yuan for Ethiopia Gadeo Micro Zone Natural). They are also roasted on site for single cups from 32 yuan to 48 yuan. For coffee lovers weaned on instant coffee or Starbucks, Seminsky recommends the Bali Kintanmani Natural Rainforest coffee (cup is 38 yuan and a bag is 198 yuan.)
