Seed cafe brews dreams of blind twins


While Shanghai, in east China, is experiencing one of the hottest summers on record, a cup of free drink offered by a cafe in the Pudong New Area refreshes passersby with a soothing aroma.

The cafe, in the shape of a fallen acorn, brews the dream of twin brothers Yin Tianbao and Yin Tianyou.


The two were born blind due to retinopathy caused by premature oxygen inhalation. Yet blindness has never hindered their efforts to explore and enjoy life.


They are skilled skateboarders and marathon runners, and are fond of playing football. Their latest effort to challenge their limit, yet, is running a cafe.


They both agreed that latte art is the most challenging part.


"The milk foam is so light that it's hard for me to judge whether the coffee is almost full by the sound. What I can do is to try by feeling slowly," said Tianbao, the elder brother.


Tianbao began learning coffee-making in late 2021. Soon Tianyou joined in.
