Salt Coffee is a Hit in Kashgar

What? Salt in coffee? Yes say the experts. The salt brings out and mellows its flavour. Okay….but does it taste good? Our customers think so.

It’s taken a while for the little city of Kashgar to appreciate the Gallery Cafe’s salt coffee. But the adventurous tourists visiting Kashgar are not afraid to taste it. One visitor started out apprehensive and claimed to be a ‘coffee snob’. After a few visits we finally coaxed her into trying out our salt coffee. The result? She was addicted and came back for one everyday she was in Kashgar.


Coffee at our western cafe taste extra special because of the altitude of the city. Kashgar sits at an altitude of almost 4000 feet (1200 meters). Since water takes longer to boil it puts the water at the perfect temperature for brewing coffee.

A couple traveling to Kashgar from America bravely tried our salt coffee yesterday, the wife finished hers in a flash and ordered another one right away. There’s just something about the the slightly salty mix the makes the coffee so smooth and delicious, leaving you craving for more.
