Sometimes you need to complement your morning perk-up with something sweet. Allpress Espresso’s Tokyo Roastery in Kiyosumi-Shirakawa has devised just such a pairing in time for the holidays. Until New Year’s Day, the store offers a special Christmas Blend flat white coffee paired with chocolate from Danish-born, Aoyama-based Summerbird Organic, for ¥750.
The coffee on its own is quite tasty. The blend — which you can also purchase to take home, 250 grams for ¥1,800 — features a subtle sweetness alongside accents of berries, making for a refreshing cup of coffee. It’s worth it on its own.
