While some companies loudly trumpet their arrival in Japan, New Zealand’s Mojo Coffee slipped in almost unannounced at the end of last year. At present, the official Mojo website doesn’t even mention that they’ve opened a café and roastery in Kagurazaka, on a backstreet just behind Akagi Shrine. Friendly, English-speaking staff dispense a variety of espresso drinks – macchiato, piccolo, NZ flat white, latte, cappuccino – in a minimally decorated space that can’t have room for more than 20 people, split between tables and a small counter next to the bar. Drinks are available with soymilk or extra shots of espresso for a small extra charge, and there’s a selection of housemade scones and cakes to go with them, plus a few savoury options. Mojo Coffee is open for breakfast from 7am on weekdays, while there’s a small list of New Zealand wine and microbrew beer to tempt you later in the day.
