Be a Coffee Master at UCC Coffee Museum in Kobe

Hello, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Do you like coffee? I and Ren (Mrs. Wada) do drink quite a bit. This time we visited UCC Coffee Museum in Kobe City so I thought I should share our experience with you.

UCC’s history began with the founder, Tadao Ueshima, who invented canned coffee.









Quiz to become a Coffee Master

There’s a quiz section where you can test how much you have learned about coffee (available in several languages). Answer all the questions correctly and you’ll get a certificate. This certificate allows you a free admission for a year! No worries, all answers are at the exhibitions. Take your time.



How do you find it? It was more fun than I expected. By the way, if your budget allows, there’s a great Kobe beef restaurant nearby. There are also reasonable places like convenience stores and cafes in the area. Since we’ve got the free tickets (certificates), we might be going back sometime.

See you around!
