In any city in the world, one doesn’t have to look hard to find a good cup of coffee. But, at home, one’s technique may not match the barista’s skills. KOFFEE MAMEYA has taken on the challenge to put an end to that and teach people how to make a cup of the steamy dark stuff with pride. Starting as a coffee bean store earlier this year, KOFFEE MAMEYA sells beans from five distinct roasters, helping instruct patrons how to select the one most suitable to individual palates. Then, teaching the intricacies of brewing the perfect cup. “Every bean and brewing method can bring out the flavors one seeks. We believe it’s the role of the barista to teach this,” says the owner Eiichi Kunimoto. Any question is welcome at the “study desk,” where baristas provide key tips on how to brew one’s perfect cup of coffee.
