We had been dreaming of visiting Japan for years, and finally made the trip in March 2017. Every moment we were awake was spent walking, exploring, visiting coffee shops, eating delicious food, and spending time with some great new friends.
We fell in love with Japan. The appreciation for subtlety, the attention to detail, the graciousness and pure kindness of all the people we met. It was really an inspiration, and we can't wait to return.
Until then, please enjoy our free coffee guide, which features 17 coffee shops we were lucky to visit in Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo, complete with photos, hours (important!) and a little extra info.
Just a head's up! You'll be asked for your shipping address but not any payment info when you download the guide!
Travel has been a huge factor in developing our passion for coffee. Since we met, finding and visiting coffee shops has always been a highlight of our travels. Especially when on short trips, stopping into a roaster is a great way to get a taste of the local culture and pick up some tips for other good spots to visit.
Our guides are a way for us to share places we've visited and enjoyed. Rather than comprehensive, they're intended to provide little glimpses into larger environments that hold any number of possibilities and will appeal to you in myriad ways, should you make the trip!
We hope to inspire, add a few spots to your itinerary, and make sure no trip goes without delicious coffee :)
