HYPEBEAST Eats: Koffee Mameya

Meet Omotesando Koffee’s newest incarnation.

By //Food

Cult Tokyo cafe Omotesando Koffee left a hole in the Japanese capital’s fervent coffee scene when it was forced to close at the end of 2015 due to concerns over the structural soundness of the traditional machiya house it occupied. While owner Eiichi Kunitomo opened a branch in Hong Kong last year to much fanfare, Tokyoites were left yearning, that is, until this January when it returned to the same rebuilt property in Omotesando under the new moniker, Koffee Mameya.

However, the focus has now shifted from a cafe to a coffee bean store — Mameya stocks 15-20 different types of beans that can be ground on-site and sold in bags that give detailed brewing instructions. Otherwise, Mameya only offers two drinks to go: coffee and espresso. Take a look at photos from our visit above, and read the Japanese-only interview with Mr. Kunitomo here.
