Blue Bottle Coffee | Shibuya and Nakameguro


ブルーボトルコーヒー



Inspired by the tale of Franz George Kolshitzky, a Polish noblemen who is said to have opened the first coffeehouse (named “The Blue Bottle”) in Vienna after the Turkish invasion, Blue Bottle Coffee was founded in the early 2000s in Oakland California and now boasts 15 branches in Tokyo as well as  more outposts in Kyoto, Kobe and Yokohama. 

It’s fair to say that since its arrival in Japan, Blue Bottle has become somewhat of a coffee hotspot amongst the coffee-loving, stylish crowd of downtown Tokyo, which loves to indulge in the company’s freshly-roasted drip coffee and various snacks and desserts you can get at the stores many locations.

The Nakameguro branch -  one of Blue Bottle’s largest -  is housed in a former electrical-parts factory, fusing modern coffee culture with industrial chic. In addition to the first floor café, there is also a tasting room where customers can smell and taste different samples of roasted coffee and a workshop hosting seminars on creativity, and of course — coffee.
