The Chinese have laid claim to many great inventions over time, such as gun powder and paper as well as more contentious claims such as football and ice-cream. However, one thing you are unlikely to ever hear a Chinese person lay claim to is coffee.
 
In spite of this, coffee drinking is one of Xiamen's crucial symbols of modernity and, while undeniably foreign, it has an enormous impact on the modern life of the locals.
 
Here is a guide to some of the best of the coffee establishments on Xidi Coffee Street (西堤咖啡一条街) in Xiamen, a popular spot for the trendy Chinese, expatriates and foreigners.
 
Xidi Coffee Street, just along the bank of Yundang Lake near the Marco Polo Hotel, has dozens of Western style cafes. The street has an incredibly rich cafe scene with little sanctuaries for latte-thirsty individuals, local and foreign alike, to sip away, chat and forget, at least momentarily, some of the stresses of Xiamen urban living.
