New Japan Starbucks Is World’s Largest
Starbucks has become such a household name that you can find an outlet almost anywhere in the world.
The American brand is continuing to expand, opening its biggest store in Tokyo, Japan, on Thursday (28 Feb).
The store boasts unique features like a 4-storey roastery that will elevate your usual cafe experience.
Largest Starbucks in the world
We have some pretty big Starbucks stores here in Singapore, like the ones at Fullerton Waterboat House and Rochester Park.
But nothing can prepare you for how massive the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Tokyo is.
Spanning across 4 storeys, the roughly 3,000 square metre space is about the size of 7 basketball courts.
4-storey coffee cask
Step inside and the first thing you’ll see is a copper column stretching from the ground all the way up to the sky.
At 4 storeys tall, that’s the largest Starbucks Roastery cask, where coffee beans rest after the roasting process.
You know your coffee will taste good if it comes out of that shining glory.
Starbucks’ largest tea bar & first cocktail bar
Inside, you can find Starbucks’ largest Teavana tea bar, for days that you want to wean off the caffeine.
Imagine having high tea at a bar while sitting on one of the minimalist wooden stools. That’ll be an atas experience in all senses of the word.
But if you believe that bars are only for hard drinks, you’d be happy to know that the store is also home to Starbucks’ first cocktail bar in Japan.
The Arriviamo Bar offers exclusive drinks infused with coffee or tea, like Nakameguro Espresso Martini — a mix of chestnut liqueur, creme de cacao and espresso.
You can get drinks for all your moods at Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Tokyo — coffee to cure your crankiness, tea to calm you down and cocktails to turn things up.
Fresh breads and pastries at in-house bakery
You’ll need food to go with your drinks, and you can find the most delicious ones at the in-store, artisan Italian bakery Princi.
Select from a wide range of the freshest breads and pastries so you won’t go hungry while spending hours at the huge store.
The aroma of coffee and fresh bakes filling up the space would be like heaven on earth.
You should definitely drop by this amazing store on your next trip to Japan, and have a taste of the most decadent indulgences life has to offer.
