One of Tokyo’s best, most recent additions might also be its most difficult to find. On our latest HYPEBEAST Road Trips Japan stop, even with the help of a Harajuku expert, navigating the backstreets was no simple feat before we ended up at Omotesando Koffee. This minimalist coffee shop occupies a small space in the lobby of a traditional Japanese house lined in tatami mats and paper walls with only the bare essentials necessary for the perfect cup of coffee. There a lone barista and his La Cimbali coffee machine work away against the backdrop of (or in this case staring directly into) a Japanese garden giving off zen-like vibes. The menu consists of Koffee Kashi (baked custard), Hot Koffee and Iced Koffee comprised of the usual suspects such as Cafe Latte, Cappuccino, Cafe Mocha, Mochaccino and regular coffee. Items That Food Cray !!!-worthy were definitely not your usual fare included Iced Shakerato, Cafe Granita, and a Baileys Cappuccino!
