Have you heard of the Blue Bottle Coffee? Blue Bottle Coffee originated from Oakland, California and is a coffee roaster and retailer that got big in a short amount of time. Its success got blown up that it has stores located around the world, including Japan.
We went to the Blue Bottle Coffee located at the busy area of Shinjuku. It’s located at the NewoMan Shopping Centre. The Blue Bottle Coffee located at Shinjuku offers a good list of latte, cappuccino, Americano, coffee, all kinds of cold beverages and some snack bit food. You can also purchase its merchandize from mugs, coffee beans to other coffee ware.
There were tons of communal high tables and stools inside this café. One of the major reasons why Blue Bottle Coffee is successful it’s due to its high quality of coffee beans and its focuses on single-origin beans. Moreover, each coffee is using the traditional hand drop method, which means a staff will hand drip the coffee through a filter in a funnel and the coffee will slowly drip out of the funnel to prepare that cup of nice beverage for its customers.
We enjoyed our visit at this Blue Bottle Coffee at the Shinjuku location coz it’s a very relax, peaceful, calm spot. Best yet, it’s very conveniently located at Shinjuku which is a busy area and where all the retrial stores, restaurants and sightseeing places are. We love this place so much that it became our “Go-To” spot on many of our mornings before we head out and sightsee this city. A cup of good coffee wakes me up and definitely a great way to start the day.
However, I do have to say that the price of the coffee or other hot or cold beverages isn’t cheap at Blue Bottle Coffee, it prices around $6-$8 CDN, but you know what? It’s Western Café and it’s hand dripped, that are part of the reasons why it’s more costly but it’s worth it coz it’s good quality of a beverage. You get what you pay for.
