World champion barista Hiroshi Sawada has been consulting in Chicago the past few years, and I had a chance to meet him at his coffeeshop in Tokyo on my second trip there. The man is one serious shokunin when it comes to mastering the art of lattes, but he’s also got some serious decorating skills up his sleeve. If you’re at all serious about coffee, make this a brief stop on your Tokyo tour. Get the Military, which has frothy matcha and white chocolate.
