Right, I’m going through a lot of old photos that I need to put up on my blog… And here is an oldie from Streamer Coffee Company from over a year ago! You’ll hear a lot about them if you Google “best coffee in Tokyo” or something similar.
That, unfortunately, is a bit of a stretch. They’re famous because the coffee is pretty. Served in giant bowl-like mug that would be quire inviting for a quick dip if diving right in wouldn’t destroy the beautiful feathered milk patterns on top.
There’s free Wifi (for tourists only last time I went – don’t know if they’ve changed this bizarre policy… it is 2016, or so I thought…), plug sockets and a nice minimalist environment in which one can settle down and study with one’s mood boosted by feeling comfortably hipster.
But the latte – pretty thought it is – is fairly weak. I remember it being comforting yet dull, as warm milk is wont to be *sigh* And at ~550 yen a pop, it ain’t cheap.
Their Military Latte – green tea, white chocolate, espresso – is stunningly pretty but also eye-wateringly pricey. I’ve not tried it but if someone wants to buy me one, I’ll happily sample it 😉
In the meantime, watch this space for more caffeine recommendations coming this way…
