On Feb. 28, Starbucks Coffee Japan opened its luxurious four-storey “Starbucks Reserve®︎ Roastery Tokyo”. The Reserve®︎ stores with a roasting facility opened in major cities Seattle, Shanghai, Milan, New York, and now Japan as its fifth, offers more than 100 kinds of coffee, tea and bread from Italian bakery chain, Princi. Shop appearance is handled by local Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, with interiors designed to highlight the blooming cherry blossoms along the Meguro River to incorporate traditional Japanese architecture.

The first floor has one of  the world’s biggest 17-metre coffee cask that reaches to the fourth floor. In the main bar, you can see the transformation from raw beans to a fully concocted coffee drink, such as the "Barrel-Aged Cold Brew" (1200 yen + tax) where you can indulge in the aromatic liqueur of black coffee splendor.

On the second floor is the world's largest "Teavana™ Bar" which offers distinctive tea beverages combining unique ingredients and flavors in Japan. The third floor has a terrace space with cocktail bar, "Arriviamo™” which is a first in Japan, making it a space where cafe cocktails, a selection of wines and beers can be enjoyed in combination with coffee and tea. Lastly, the fourth floor is an "Inspiration Lounge" that offers its space for various events linked to regional or social discussions and presentations in the future.
