Was geht ab? It’s Mr. Wada on duty! What coffee do you drink at cafe? Dripped coffee? Latte? Espresso? What about wiener coffee? I will feature shortly about it this time.
First of all, have you heard of it? Well, at least you may get an idea it’s about coffee, right? Though what the hell is Wiener? Let’s figure what it is.
Mystery of Wiener Coffee
Enter Motomachi Coffee
We’ve visited a new cafe called Motomachi Coffee. It looks similar to Kurashiki Coffee. Kissaten style.
Take a look at the menu. This place serves Wiener coffee! Lemme try one.
Try Wiener Coffee!
Here it comes. So this is it. Where is the wiener……there doesn’t seem to be such a thing on or in it.
About Wiener Coffee
To tell the truth, coffee with whipped cream on top is what it is (sorry for disappointing you. Hehe), at least in Japan. Its origin comes from Vienna, Austria. Weiner refers to Vienna, so it’s Vienna coffee. In the old days many Japanese would try to find where the weiner would be hiding. Hehe. I believe you wouldn’t.
It’s been a long time since this drink came to Japan but it is still available at cafes including this Motomachi Coffee and Kurashiki Coffee where I’ve previously introduced. Please try it and lemme know what you think.
During our visit in Kasaoka City from my last post, I wanted to go to a cafe before going back to Okayama City. I found this one cafe not too far from Kasaoka Bayfarm. It’s actually just few minutes of walk from JR Kasaoka Station. The cafe’s name is Tsuji Coffee. Now, shall we have our coffee time in Kasaoka?
Tsuji Coffee (辻珈琲)
It’s a small-size cafe that serves coffee with their own roasted beans. It can accommodate up to 10 customers. The location is pretty cool, one side of the cafe faces towards the railway, so you’ll have a clear view of the trains passing by.
Coffee and Dessert Menu
They have their own blend and lineup of single-origin coffee beans. For desserts, it says to ask the staff for details.
It seems this cafe also holds tasting lessons.
Hey, look at their tables! It’s a reused sewing machine! How cool is that! And, I got to play with them.
Other one is Singer brand and this one is Mitsubishi. Burn burn away those calories…
Interesting coffee miller used as an interior. There are many of them placed all over the cafe.
Addition to our Japan manhole collection and this colored fire hydrant cover too. The design shows an image of kabutogani (カブトガニ), horseshoe crab. It seems kabutogani is the symbol of Kasaoka City. There’s even horseshoe crab museum that we passed on the way to Kasaoka Bayfarm.
