The U.S. coffee shop comes to Japan
California-born U.S. coffee chain The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf opens its first Japanese branch in Nihonbashi.
The Coffee Bean boasts a large selection of coffee brewed with beans sourced directly from family farms and estates, as well as a wide variety of teas ranging from the standard, such as English Breakfast and Earl Grey, to the exotic, such as Moroccan Mint, African Sunrise, Swedish Berries, and Lung Ching.
Their Japan exclusive is the Matcha Cappuccino, which infuses the Italian treat with green tea zest. Also try their delectable muffins and cookies for a special coffee break.
