  1. WTC – World Training Center.
    Rather unromantic location, on the 4th floor of the Gameonepwint Shopping Mall on Insein Rd. (Used to be in the back of Pearl Condo). But once you are there, it’s a surprising place for coffee-lovers.
    Really great coffee, with talented latte-artists too. They also sell all the specialist coffee-making equipment you could need, including Aeropress.
    They roast their own beans from various producers in Shan state, and sell the beans, as well as a range of imported coffees.
    They are a Barista training center, and probably trained most of the baristas working at the other Cafe’s on this list!
