In Japan, originally known for the green tea, there’s a rapidly growing tendency to drink coffee. Good, mostly dark roasted coffee.
Coffeebar Omotesando is nestled inside a Machiya, a traditional 60-year-old wooden Japanese house, off a side street in Omotesandō. It’s not easy to find, from the outside you just see a small courtyard, but once you get through the wooden gate and step over the porch you enter the minimalistic (tea ceremony like) room with a cube frame where you find the barista in a lab-style coat pulling his espresso shots. The cube motif can be found everywhere; even the cakes are small cubes.
The coffee at Omotesando was very good but Japan has more places with mind-blowing caffeine. See my list below!
