In spring of 2016, this ten-year-old coffee shop started roasting its own beans
(¥615 per 100g). 'It’s just like roasting meat,' says owner Masahiro Kaneko, who started Weekenders ten years ago. 'The beans have to be roasted for a short time in order to preserve their structure and lock in the oils.' Weekenders has keenly studied the global rise of third-wave coffee shops, and those coffee trends are all present here – expect note-perfect espresso drinks prepared on a La Marzocco machine. Cafe lattes and other drinks are available starting at ¥500.
