Blue Bottle Coffee Inc., a U.S. coffee chain dubbed by some the “Apple of coffee,” is considering expanding further in Japan, according to the company’s founder and CEO.

James Freeman, who heads the chain known for using fresh beans within 48 hours of roasting, said in a speech in San Francisco that the company may open a fourth cafe in Tokyo, in the city’s Roppongi district. Many foreign embassies are located in the area, which is popular among locals and foreigners for its nightlife.
