TOKYO | There’s a lot of fantastic coffee to be found in Tokyo, but the place that’s arguably the best in town is Koffee Mameya in Omotesando. Omotesando Koffee, which was run by Eiichi Kunitomo, aquired legendary status amongst Tokyo’s coffee fans and people were devastated when it had to shut down (due to the property being redeveloped) in late 2015.

Fast forward to 2017 and Eiichi Kunitomo opened Koffee Mameya, in the same spot as the original shop. It’s been designed by Yosuke Hayashi, who designed Omotesando Koffee, who has made the most of the small space. A quaint Japanese garden entrance leads to the main door – to the side is a store room and at in front a small standing-room only space with an array of differently shaded coffee bean packages lined up. In front, two baristas making coffee for the waiting customers.

Unlike a lot of places who roast their own beans, Koffee Mameya select roasters from around the globe and have them roast the beans to their specifications. Japanese roasters feature largely, but there are beans from all over the world. When we visited there were around 15 different beans on offer from roasters in Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Melbourne (Code Black just up to road from our office actually).

The space is designed to draw the customers attention to the brew bar and the staff, and Kunitomo loves talking to customers about the coffee on offer, describing the beans and helping them find the exact brew for them, or beans to take home. Espresso-based, V60, French press, cold brew, and any other method of brew you want is available here, and when you take that first sip of your coffee, you’ll know that coming here was worth it, and you will have learned something too.
