From coral-roasted coffee to Tokyo's hotel-cafe hybrids, this past year The High Grounds has covered some of the most innovative coffee in Japan.

This final entry in the series is only one fanatic's list of 10 places (in no particular order) to get your coffee fix in the capital.

Sukemasa Coffee: A recent addition to Tokyo's espresso scene, Sukemasa is just steps away from Sensoji temple but feels worlds away from the crowds. Its top-notch espresso is pulled with beans from Sunny Bell Coffee in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture. Barista Shota Shishido made the top 16 of the 2019 Free Pour Latte Art Grand Prix, and his skill in milk foaming and pouring is readily apparent. On top of that, in a contemporary twist on traditional Japanese hospitality, staff all wear denim kimono.
