Roast Works


At Roast Works, a modern roastery in the Tomigaya neighborhood of Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward, roaster Keisuke Narusawa talks me through the basics of simple, home-brewed iced coffee. Whether you’re using a filter, French press or Aerobie’s AeroPress to make your brew, the general principle is the same: halve the amount of water you’d normally use and pour the coffee over an equivalent volume of ice. And there’s no need to change your beans, either.

In line with COVID-19 guidelines, the government is strongly requesting that residents and visitors exercise caution if they choose to visit bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
