Ginza Tokyo Japan
This place can only be described as a rich man’s wonderland. A place for cash splurgers to do what they do best. Tiffany & Co. Gucci, Blvgari, Prada, all some what out of my humble price range. Something I could afford however, was staring me right in the face, and could make me a very happy man.
I entered Le cafe Doutor Ginza, with no real expectations, and was plesently surprised when I saw what the very capable Japanese barista could do. This young man was in complete control, and after waiting in a long line, I was delighted to be handed a well presented cup, with a solid attempt at some latte art. I sat and enjoyed a well balanced, sweet but suttle coffee, in a cute little garden on the corner of Ginza’s main intersection. Nothing stood out about the blend its self, no real complexity. How ever it was the smooth and strong espresso which has been the void in my life for the past week, and gee it felt good to have it back. After discussing with the staff at the counter in my very poor language skills, I gathered that it was doutor’s house blend.
My satisfaction and the atmosphere in this place is worth awarding a solid 1 bean, to a cafe with huge potential.
Corporate travellers, A must stop.
