Blue Bottle Coffee Kyoto

Recommended Posts

HI

 

Seems that the uber-hip american Blue Bottle coffee are expanding in Japan.

They opened in Tokyo a couple of years ago, and are now opening a very nice

looking new cafe in Kyoto in a coverted traditional house.

 

If you are into architecure or Japan or both have a look at the link

The cafe in Tokyo is allways packed, usually with asian tourists, coffee is aveage.

Strangely they use Baratza Virtuoso domestic grinders for their pourover, tsk tsk !.

 

At least the new Kyoto branch looks to have an EK for pour over, although using

Mazzer espresso grinders feels a bit old school in 2018 [ Myhtos Ones seems to be

the choice for most UK cafes these days ]

 

PS. Blue Bottle are now owned by Nestle = Nescafe = Nespresso = Babymilk scandals

I will check it out this summer, and if my lazy mood improves I will report back.
