Not far from the up-and-coming Ropponmatsu Station area in a back alley of small, funky shops sits Coffeeman, which is run by award-winning barista Takaomi Eguchi. The shop, which roasts its own beans, offers four blends and two single origin coffees. When you order, you choose your cup based on the roast level: 3.8 for a lighter blend, or 5.6 for a medium roast, for example. The different levels bring the most out of each kind of bean. The third photo in the gallery shows their americano which you mix to taste. The shop opens at 8 a.m. and is located next door to a popular bakery, making it a great way to start your day.
