Coffee choices of the day
Ladies in kimonos having iced coffee
I chose "Hawaiian Kona Only But Complicated" (seriously, that was the name!)
because, well, complications are my thing.
It was mellow, buttery and sweet. I loved it!
So I asked the lady to pack me some beans to bring home to Manila.
Ohmygulay! It was 2,500 yen for 100 grams!!!
Must not let a drop go to waste.
