In this video, Shizuka visits 3 distinct cafes in Shibuya, trying 3 totally unique cups of coffee.
First, she visits Reissue, a cafe close to Harajuku’s colorful Takeshita Street, which opened in 2015. Reissue is famous for their Instagram-worthy 3D latte art, though the latte artist on staff can also make realistic 2D paintings in chocolate syrup on top of the foam. Bring a photo for inspiration; they can latte-ify just about anything!
Next up is HealthyTOKYO CBD Shop & Cafe, which features a vegan and mostly gluten-free menu. CBD-infused drinks and foods are available, as well as their original CBD products. Shizuka tries their CBD-infused matcha latte and coffee! (NOTE: HealthyTokyo’s CBD products are derived from organically grown industrial hemp and do not cause a “high.”)
Lastly, we finish off the video at a traditional Japanese kissaten which serves classic hand-drip coffee and chiffon cake. Notably, Satei Hato is among the coffee shops that inspired James Freeman, CEO of Blue Bottle Coffee. Their no-wifi policy keeps the charming, old-fashioned spirit alive, and the coffee master, Toyoshi Taguchi, chooses the cup specifically to suit the guest, from a collection of hundreds of coffee cups.
