Gangneung's reputation as "the City of Coffee" first began when Park Yi-choo, one of the three first-generation baristas in Korea, opened a roastery in Yeongok, Gangneung. Until then, Koreans were only familiar with instant coffee and coffee vending machines. From then on, the practice of roasting coffee beans gradually spread, changing the coffee culture in Gangneung. The Gangneung Coffee Festival is held every year to promote coffee culture and celebrate the city's growth as the leading coffee hub in Korea.
