Tokado Coffee, owned by world champion coffee roaster Naoki Goto, has nine varieties of carefully selected beans on hand at any given time. You can choose your brew based on its provenance or roast level—light, medium, medium-dark or dark—or have a staff member recommend a cup based on your preferences. (Different shapes of cups are used for different roast levels.) The beans are ground only after you order, and if you sit at the counter, you can enjoy watching the barista make your cup with expert care. So stop by, relax and enjoy a professionally made cuppa!
