Coffee’s journey in convenience stores in Japan!

It has been a while since my last food porn post. Well, this time is not exactly about food but still!

To be honest, I am not a coffee addict. I love to have a cup of latte or cappuccino once in a while. But I have to admit that I am in love with all these fancy latte flavors people have around the world. Whenever I see new flavors of latte or frappe from Starbucks I know I have to get one, and Japan happens to be a wonderland of limited time flavors! If you haven’t seen our post on Starbucks in Japan, please do so!

However, I fall in love with the ready to go (RTD)coffee that you can grab from the shelf of any convenience stores!

When I first saw the RTD coffee range in a convenience stores, I was so impressed and confused at the same time because there were too many to chose from. How do you know which one tastes good and which one does not…I guess the only choice is to randomly pick one and test your luck! From my experience, none of these flavors taste too bad to bear so don’t worry!


First of all let me introduce my favorite…choco mint!


Although its name is Choco mint drink, you can recognize a vibrant taste of coffee together with choco mint flavor ice-cream. This is a perfect thirst quencher!

Next is October (more like Halloween) limited flavor from Starbucks, the pumpkin pie latte!


A sweet pumpkin scent blended with milk and coffee make this drink a unique one compare to all the others.

When it comes to Japan, matcha flavor is something you cannot ignore!


There are many more flavors for you to choose from nuts such as chestnut or roasted macadamia to caramel or even banana flavor latte!.


Why not try one yourself on your next visit to Japan. I am sure you will not be able to stop after just one cup!

see you next blog!
