For those of you who don’t know me, my name is James Clarke. I am the marketing and admin manager for MCR. I’m a young Y gen coffee fanatic, and have began reviewing to share my passion as many others do, who are involved in the company. Debut: Japan
As I arrived late last night into Tokyo Japan, After an unbelievable day of travel, the first thing my body was craving this morning was a satisfying pour of espresso to kick off my day. MY GOD was it hard to find. Apart from the hustle and bustle of navigating my way around one of the worlds largest cities, My efforts for a quality cup of coffee seems rather short chnged after I finally found a place. The culpret, Tully’s Coffee…
My experience was that of a Starbucks, or Gloria jeans franchise. A “cafe” with no real atmosphere, and coffee with no real complexity. The coffee was seved hot, which was a good start as this is a real pleaser for me, but lacked any depth or flavour. I looked around as people swarmed the venue ordering drink after drink, shortly realising the majority were iced coffee’s or dessert type beverages. Obviously painting a clear picture. This was by no means an espresso bar, likes the ones we are privillaged to have in the hidden lanes of Melbourne. never the less, i’m sure many coffee lovers have experienced this at one stage or another. The feeling has left me wanting more, and over the next 10 days of my trip I will cull my way through Japans cafe’s to find a means to an end, and the perfect devils cup..
No beans Mr Tully
