Japan's 1 store is a roastery cafe fierce war district, Kiyosumi Shirakawa
From Tokyo Metro, Toei Subway Kiyosumi Shirakawa Station on foot 8 minutes. There is "Blue Bottle Coffee Kiyosumi Shirakawa Roth Tally & Cafe" in a quiet residential area.
In Kiyosumi Shirakawa, hot coffee roasters such as "The Cream of the Crop Coffee", "ARiSE COFFEE ENTANGLE", and "ALLPRESS ESPRESSO" have been sharpened in recent years. That's why Kisumi Shirakawa was the first coffee shop "Blue Bottle Coffee" from San Francisco to be launched.
Many people were already connected in front of the grand opening at 8 am. I arrived around 7 in the morning, but more than 30 people were already in line. There is no distribution of admission ticket, we will line up in the parking lot next to the store.
Meanwhile, James Freeman, founder of Blue Bottle Coffee, came out of the store just before the store opened. It is this "blue bottle coffee" that Freeman who was a clarinet player gave up the way of music and started at 2002 8 month's garage in San Francisco at his home garage in San Francisco.
The reason for opening a store in Kiyosumi Shirakawa seems to be that "the relaxed atmosphere was a little like Oakland", and Freeman who loves Japanese coffee shops is aiming for a store rooted in Kiyosumi Shirakawa here. Before the opening, it was impressive to have a chat with the locals.
Roasted daily with a large roaster, served within 48 hours
Finally enter the store! The storefront of the 2 storehouse, which was originally a warehouse, is very large, and many coffee bean bags are loaded in the back. A large roasting machine is set up in the center of the shop, and organically selected green coffee beans are roasted in-house and released to customers within 48 hours.
The shop has a good atmosphere with jazz BGM.
This is Michael Phillips of the 2010 world barista champion. Mr. Phillips is doing barista training for Kiyosumi Shirakawa and Aoyama, which will open in XNUM month (^ ^)
I worked while watching the inside of the store on this day.

Hand drip coffee to be brewed in front of you
When order is received, drip coffee will be poured in front of your eyes in order.
Coffee beans will be ground by 1 cup by coffee mill.
Awesome smell (^ ^)
There is a timer on the table that holds drip coffee, and the time is well controlled.
I will pour hot water carefully little by little in order.
I've been to a drip coffee shop, but I've never seen it in front of me.
Hand dripped coffee is extracted little by little through filter paper and finished ♪
You can drink it in a glass cup if you drink in the store, or a paper cup if you bring it home.
Espresso coffee is the espresso machine and this Barista's brewed.
Cappuccino has a wonderful finish.
Michael Phillips makes a call to Barista and relaxes.
The Japanese 1 store finally opened. An emotional expression was impressive.
Get a single origin from Kenya
I'm not very good at bitter-sweet coffee, but this single origin has sour taste and hardly any bitter taste. It was a very delicious coffee with a mellow aroma and a fruity taste spread throughout the mouth (^ ^)
The temperature was also right and it was delicious without the addition of sugar or milk!
Pastry ordered orange pound cake.
The smell of orange peel is effective.
The palm-sized double chocolate cookies (300 yen) are moist and a little soft cookies.
Salt accents further enhance the sweetness of the chocolate.
As for the seat capacity to XNUM seat, local close-type roastery & cafe
Although this day was the first day of the opening, I had increased the seating temporarily in the cupping room, but the Kiyosumi Shirakawa store mainly uses the roast house, so there are no more seats than 8 seats. There is neither power supply nor Wi-Fi.
Blue Bottle Coffee Kiyosumi Shirakawa, which will be the XNUM store in Japan, received a stance that James Freeman, who started in the San Francisco garage, wants to return to his initial intention and create a local store. The store will be expanded in the future, but it will be that the roastery & cafe of Kiyosumi Shirakawa will be based here in Japan.
When I got out of the shop, there were already more than 200 processions. It seems this congestion will continue for a while (^ ^)
Aoyama store will open in 3 month and Daikanyama store will open in 4 month
Blue bottle coffee will be opened in Aoyama store on 3 / Month 7 (Saturday), and in Daikanyama this springLOG ROAD DAIKANYAMA(Log load Daikanyama) will open one after another. There are a lot of seats here and it seems to become a substantial large store.
Hospitality-filled, coffee beans and third-wave coffee banders who focus on how to make coffee, blue bottle coffee will keep an eye on what kind of shops it will develop in Kiyosumi Shirakawa, Aoyama and Daikanyama!
