After a decade as chief barista and head roaster at Paul Bassett, Kiyokazu Suzuki broke out on his own and set up this excellent coffeeshop among the old-school kissaten of Jinbocho in spring 2015. Glitch has won admirers for its communal roaster and relaxed approach to craft coffee, and imports beans directly from mainly Kenyan and Tanzanian producers. Suzuki appears to prefer beans that result in a pleasantly sour brew, so those tired of the light roasts found at so many other specialist cafés in Tokyo are sure to enjoy his concoctions. Just don't expect to find him behind the counter every day: Suzuki currently divides his time between Glitch and its sister shop, Counterpart, which opened in Shinjuku in January 2016.
