Harajuku is teaming with trendy cafés, but the newest branch of speciality coffee roaster Blue Bottle Coffee is still sure to turn heads. You’ll find it inside the Human Made Offline Store in Jingumae, so you can sip on a cup of freshly brewed coffee while shopping for stylish streetwear.

The founder of the Human Made streetwear and fashion label, Nigo, has been a long-time fan of Blue Bottle Coffee and even created uniforms for the baristas at the Shibuya outlet when it opened back in April.

In May, Human Made Offline Store moved from Nakameguro to Harajuku, and now it has its very own Blue Bottle café.

In addition to the usual selection of hand drip coffee on offer at Blue Bottle Coffee shops, there are also two special Human Made coffee blends available to try (eat in ¥605, takeout ¥594). The Human Made Future blend has a floral taste with notes of caramel and cocoa, while the Human Made Past blend is a mild, yet rich coffee with notes of blackberry, maple and hibiscus. These two speciality blends are also available for purchase in 200g bags for ¥1,836 each.

In celebration of the opening, the café has also worked with confectionery shop Kagizen to make a box of wasanbon (¥3,780; decorative sugar cubes) shaped into pastel orange and blue hearts.
