Omotesando Koffee started out as a pop-up shop just a stone’s throw away from Tokyo’s Omotesando district. It was situated in a tiny, traditional Japanese home that was often hard to find, but locals and tourists always made sure it was a stop on their itinerary. The original storefront closed at the end of 2015 as the success of Omotesando Koffee outgrew the old shop which needed much repair. The coffee shop and its baristas made such a huge mark on Japan’s culinary landscape that its next venture spawned a bigger location in the form of Toranomon Koffee, an impressive modern cafe-setup located in Tokyo’s Toranomon Hills. Following this, the cafe extended abroad, setting up its first international outpost in Hong Kong. In this short, we dropped by the new location to catch with Omotesando Koffee’s founder, Eiichi Kunimoto, and picked his brain on what coffee culture means to him.
