Little Cloud Coffee
In need of a great-tasting, organic cup of coffee while enhancing your wardrobe in Omotesando? Stop by Little Cloud Coffee! Located on the second floor of the upscale Gyre Department store, Little Cloud Coffee is the offspring of the Japanese luxury fashion brand visvim, and is located directly inside the visvim clothing store (this will link to the separate visvim clothing store article). Don’t worry about language barriers—many of Little Cloud Coffee’s visitors are tourists and out-of-town shoppers, so their offerings are available in both English and Japanese.
Little Cloud Coffee uses a proprietary blend of 3 different medium-roast beans from El Salvador and Guatemala to create a full-bodied visvim coffee. They use a Kutani ware –style of Japanese porcelain, dripper filtration system, in which hot water is poured through hot coffee grounds to get optimum coffee flavor while avoiding an unpleasant bitter taste. The coffee we had was an excellent, richly-flavored brew that did not even need cream or sugar. Smooth!
Little Cloud Coffee also offers regular and soy Lattes (both hot and iced), Espressos and Cappuccinos. The shop’s non-coffee related offerings include a fresh lemonade (with lemons picked from Osaki Shimojima) and a tasty ginger apple juice. And of course, Little Cloud Coffee has pastry and sweets to enjoy with your beverage, such as ginger cake, oatmeal and banana cookies, and even delicious brownies!
At the side of the counter (before you enter the visvim clothing section), there is a door that leads you to an outdoor patio space where you can sip and relax with a great view of the hustle-and-bustle of beautiful Omotesando. Even better? You can browse the famous visvim clothing store while enjoying your coffee!
visvim created Little Cloud Coffee to extend their desire for high-quality manufacturing and production into a coffee and beverage space. If you want a great place to enjoy an expertly-crafted beverage while shopping for the best of Japanese fashion, Little Cloud Coffee and visvim are an unbeatable combination!
