A few weeks ago, I was tweeted a link to some great coffee shops that roast their own beans around Tokyo, and I was surprised to see that one of them wasn’t far from my house.
Therefore, yesterday when I was returning from running an errant I thought I call past, as I had some time up my sleeve.
It was a little difficult to find at first, but after asking a postal worker for directions who was in the middle of making a delivery, I finally stumbled across it.
After entering, I was politely greeted at the counter, I then ran an eye over the coffee menu, then ordered an espresso.
The coffee was Sitio Da Serra from Brazil, and it was listed to have notes of strawberry, honey and almond. However honestly, I had trouble picking up the latter two, but the strawberry was certainly there.
I sat down on one of the ten seats in the cafe just in front of the record player and the small stack of 60’s and 70’s records.
From where I sat, I could see the roasting machine, and asked a few questions to the guy behind the counter. I explained that I was curious on leaning how to roast, and if they ran any classes, although I knew that they wouldn’t have, but I wanted to show some eagerness to learn. We then talked about Melbourne (my hometown), which he’d visited two years ago.
It was a great little cafe and I’ll definitely go back again to work my way through their verity of beans.
