Along with the coffee booming in Japan, some of individual coffee aficionados and major coffee retailers teamed up each other to name themselves as the “Town of Coffee Ikejiri Ohashi“.

Taste in session, Their coffee bring people together to get hyped up to be creative.

昨今のコーヒーブームに乗って一つ笑。目黒、池尻大橋周辺のオシャンティな位置にかまえる大人の秘密基地。中に入ると左手に見えるのがこちらのコーヒースタンド!筆者はコーヒーなら何でも一緒というくらい味に疎いが、素敵な環境で小さなアトリエやクリエイティブな人達があつまるユニークな倉庫であるそう。コーヒータウンと呼ばれる池尻大橋にはその他におしゃれなコーヒー屋さんがいっぱい。ほぼ毎日インスタントで飲んでいる筆者には毎朝オシャレ過ぎて引いてしまうかもしれない笑。しかし、面白い人が集まるのは筆者も数回寄らせて頂いているので実証済み!

 

 

STREAMER COFFEE

First of all, I am not really sure if I am allowed to call them one of OG’s for third wave coffee. Established in 2010 at a complex, mixture of culture, chaotic full of people, Shibuya, philosophy of theirs also hold its beauty of connecting people together through their well-prepared coffee and piece of latte art. The man behind this caffeinated beverage and art of brown and white, Hiroshi Sawada, foremost figure of achieving highest score in history of “Free Pour Latte Art Championship” that was held in Seattle 2008. He and his crew are up for offering the aesthetics of coffee as well as soothing experience of their place. Damn, the sound of “Barista” is way too cool to be named after. I guess I would call myself “free-spirited, non-conformity” then instead. 

サードウェーブコーヒーが流行になる前から、ごった煮返しの渋谷でスタートしたコーヒー屋さん。しっかりとクオリティに目を向けたコーヒーに加え、飲むのには惜しくなるほど綺麗に描かれたラテアート。創業者の方はシアトルで開かれたラテアートの大会でアジア人で過去最高得点を叩き出した凄腕の方。コーヒーの味と見た目を追求したもはやカッコ良過ぎる姿勢を彼と彼のクルー達は我々に提供してくださっています。個人的にはバリスタという響きがこれにもなくカッコ良く、自分はなんだろうなぁと考えた結果、自由奔放で体制に同調しない体質?だろうと思いましたが、しっかり日本人の気質は持ち合わせている事に気づきました笑。

 

 

SAWADA COFFEE

The giant of independent, west coast style coffee, and supreme lover Hiroshi Sawada, he actually has his own coffee shop after his name in Chicago. Latte art expert goes into his philosophy of latte and his passion for coffee.  He mentioned in this clip above that “Free pour latte art is actually a proof of a delicious latte. With a white of carefully steamed milk and pitch-brown of good quality espresso, the combination of these two illustrate how well made of a latte it would be. Now i might check out his place and how good it would be to taste his masterpiece even though this encounter was my initial experience that what the hell latte is made from. His style also pinpoint my interest that west coast taste to his world is something that I admire for. 

より、興味が出てきたので調べて行くと、なんとご自身の名前でのコーヒー屋さんがシカゴにあるとの事。コーヒーのパイオニアだと思ってましたが、西海岸スタイルを醸し出すライフスタイルの一部としてのコーヒー、いやラテを提供しているのであるという事に。白くスチームされたミルクのきめ細かさと、しっかり抽出されたエスプレッソのブラウンが混じり合う事により、アート性が高ければ高いほど、美味しいとの事。ラテが何から出来ているか今知った筆者でしたが、時間があれば訪れて、飲んでみたくなりました。また、西海岸の雰囲気を醸し出しているスタイルも心を掴まれました笑。
