Inspired by Japan: Coffee Trends
Blue Bottle Coffee, an Oakland-based company with over twenty cafes, uses Japanese equipment and draws upon Japan’s tradition of craftsmanship. James Freeman, Blue Bottle Coffee’s Founder and CEO, discusses his philosophy and explains how he was inspired by a cup of coffee he had in Japan, which he described as “drinking a mink coat."
He is joined by Tokyo 3D latte artist Kazuki Yamamoto, who will give an on-stage demonstration. This program is moderated by New York-based writer Yumiko Sakuma.
Followed by a reception where guests can sample Blue Bottle’s New Orleans Iced Coffee and watch a masterful pour-over demonstration by Blue Bottle coffee baristas.
Tickets: $18/$14 Japan Society members, seniors & students
