Originated from Kyoto, % Arabica was founded by a man who wants to live a simple and down-to-earth life and needs an amazing cup of coffee every day. It’s a beautiful belief and I could really resonate with this philosophy of founder, Kenneth Shoji.

The Cafe Latte ($8 for tall) was milky and smooth, with a good balance of nuttiness. The star is surprisingly the Matcha Latte ($9.60 for tall), it beats any of the major coffee chains hands down. Even with the milky body, you could taste the richness of the matcha. I would probably not return for the coffee, but I will certainly be back for more matcha latte when I deserve a treat! 😌
