Located on the quiet part of Sukhumvit 31, sleek, all-white Paga is part micro-roaster, part communal space for learning, sipping, and chatting with friends. Romanian co-owner Gabriel Carol even encourages everyone to put away their phones.
You won’t find anything with chocolate or matcha here, but you will find espresso (THB90), long black (THB100) and cold brew (THB120), as well as selections of specialty-grade filter coffee. Right now those include El Rinconcito La Joya México (THB350) with notes of banana, guava, and blueberries and Rumudamo from Ethiopia (THB350), which ranked third in the Cup of Excellence 2020 competition.
All beans are carefully selected by Carol, brewmaster who has been in the coffee industry for over a decade. In 2018, he took home first place in the Romanian Brewers Cup and placed ninth in the World Brewers Cup, competitions that highlight the craft of hand-brewed filter coffee.
Check out the roaster on the top floor, then retreat to the ground floor and gawk at gadgetry like Gem Series drippers and a Sanremo Opera 2.0 espresso machine. In the future, return to check out the training lab, a series of classes and cupping sessions for anyone who would like to learn more about the world of coffee.
Paga is located in Soi Sukhumvit 31 and is best reached by taxi or motorbike taxi from BTS Phrom Phong. It opens from 8am until 5pm every day.
