Goats Welcome Customers at Japanese Coffee Shop


Goats are seen across the internet yelling like humans, but would you want to enjoy your cup of coffee next to one?

Would you want to sip a cup of coffee with this guy by your side?

First came a more domesticated cat café. Now, there’s a goat café. Do we dare ask what will be next?

According to Reuters, the latest animal café to open has been a coffee shop in Tokyo that is also the home to two pet goats: Sakura (Cherry) and Chocolat. Customers can pet them while enjoying a beverage, or you can even book in advance to take the goats for a walk. Café owner Rena Kawaguchi brought in the goats to attract an animal-loving clientele, one she hopes she can further develop with an elephant café in the future.

Kotaro Nakazato, a 21-year-old university student, told Reuters, “When you live in the city like I do, places where you can meet animals are so far away and you rarely get the time to go there. Having them nearby like this makes it easy to commune with nature.”

The goats are not an easy undertaking. Staff members have the added stress of having to muck out the pen and feed them protein-rich pills to prevent foul-smelling droppings.

History and Culture of Uji Tea

Uji tea cultivation began in the Kamakura period in the early 13th century. When the monk Eisai returned from China, he told him about the custom of drinking tea, and the seeds were planted by the monk, Meie, in Uji, Kyoto.

Cultivation in Uji expanded rapidly due to perfect natural conditions such as soil and topography. Uji tea was considered a "First Class Gift", and a "Fighting Tea" was held to drink tea in production areas. It is said that "Cha-no-yu", which was developed by Senrikyu, put Uji tea (matcha) first and demanded quality and improvement.

During the Edo period, the Tokugawa III Shogun Lemitsu ordered the Uji Kambayashi family to make imperial court confession tea and high-grade tea directly for the Shogun family, and institutionalized the transportation of new tea to Edo as "Ochabo Michinaka". It continued for 50 years.

In the late Meiji era, Uji tea spread to ordinary households, triggering the establishment of tea culture at home. Eisai's "Cafe Health Record" states, "Tea is a curing herbal medicine. It's a magical way to prolong life." It encourages you to drink tea and live longer.


These Four Roadside Coffee Shops Are A Hit Amid The Pandemic

The owners of these roadside coffee shops found a way to offer drinks safely and smartly, making them cope even if the COVID-19 pandemic spelled doom for many.

Opening up a business in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic is obviously not for the fainthearted given the risks involved and the restrictions imposed to curb the transmission of the virus.

But the owners of these roadside coffee shops found a way to offer drinks safely and smartly, making them cope even if the pandemic spelled doom for many.

Muni Coffee PH

Along the National Highway of Barangay Longos in Kalayaan, Laguna, a small Japanese-inspired coffee shop that caters to joggers, bikers and motorists can be found.

Muni Coffee PH measures only about five square meters, but it can serve 100 coffee lovers daily.

The owners – Julius Lacaba and his girfriend Isabella Ragaza – were inspired by the concept of hole-in-the-wall restaurants and started the construction of their dream coffee shop in October last year.

With a capital of P250,000, they put up walls in front of their house to provide an enclosed space for customers who want to stay in the coffee shop while making it accessible to those who prefer to take out their orders.

Pinatayuan pa ng poste, ng mga walls so kaya dun medyo nagmahal talaga pero siguro kung existing na 'yung establishment, siguro less pa dun sa figure na 'yun 'yung mailalabas naming capital,” Lacaba told The Philippine STAR in a recent interview.

Muni opened in December and in less than a month, it already received warm welcome from neighbors, other residents of the province and online.

Customers from as far as Quezon City and other parts of Metro Manila have also visited to try their cup of coffee after they have gone viral on Facebook.

“‘Pag tinatanong namin, ‘Pa'no niyo po kami nalaman? Pa'no po kayo napapunta dito? May pupuntahan po ba kayo rito sa parte?’ ganyan. Sasabihin nila, ‘No, ano, nag-viral kayo sa Facebook. Hindi niyo ba alam?’ Tapos kaming dalawa as in wala pa kaming idea kasi nagpe-prepare pa kami,” Ragaza recounted.

The design and structure of Muni are similar to the coffee kiosks in Japan that give minimalist vibes and offer affordable coffee drinks. Julius said this is to encourage people to come back for their products.

“Since nasa province kami, gusto namin ilapit sa tao. Ayaw naman namin na kumita kami nang sobra sobra pero hindi na babalik 'yung tao that's why we come up dun sa gano'n lang 'yung price,” Lacaba explained.

The prices range from P45 to P85 per cup. They also offer grilled sandwiches, which cost P60 each.

From the original operating hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., the couple extended these to 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The coffee shop also strives to advocate sustainability. The owners use sugarcane straws and cups for their hot beverages and are currently looking for an alternative to plastic cups for their iced beverages to help save the environment.

During the first day of their soft opening, they earned around P1,700 and were very happy. The couple said their goal was just to survive while still in the process of getting discovered by customers.

Ang goal nga lang namin (ay) ma-survive namin 'yung may pambayad kami sa tao at sa supplies, masaya na kami. Ang saya na namin no'n. First day namin, 1,700, sobrang saya na namin,” Lacaba recounted.

“On the first day, 'yung relatives pa namin 'yung pumupunta so thankful na rin kami na pumunta sila. And 'yun, it turned out well,” he said.

Currently, they have two baristas and two staff assigned to grill sandwiches, accommodate orders and manage the shop’s parking system.

According to Ragaza, they are learning a lot and are trying to make improvements. She believes that entrepreneurs like them need to be flexible and accept that some things may not turn out as planned.

Sticking to the plan is difficult because of the challenges that come their way as they began their operations.

Kasi maraming naging pagbabago along the way and you'll have to accept it and eventually conquer it para ma-surpass mo 'yung mga challenges na 'yun,” Ragaza said.

The two also want to inspire young entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Lacaba admitted that it could be really scary but love for what they do can pull people through.

Nakakatakot talaga, but with the help of your friends, family, nung mga taong malalapit sa 'yo, malalagpasan naman lahat eh. Kaya naman lahat eh. As long as gusto mo 'yung ginagawa mo, alam mo 'yung ginagawa mo, and masaya ka sa ginagawa mo. I think any business, kahit ano pang pasukin mo, ayun ang pinaka-importante,” he said.

Now, motorists line up to have a taste of their coffee, even causing traffic jams along the highway sometimes.

Café y Bicicleta Iloilo

In an empty waiting shed along Diversion Road in Mandurriao, Iloilo City, two young cyclists rolled out their mobile coffee shop.

Cousins Ron Iverson Ledesma and Jose Gabriel Cumal used their personal bikes and a couple of crates to find a way to support their parents during the pandemic.

They initially wanted to put up the coffee shop in September, but because of the recent typhoons, they had to postpone it.

Nag-start po kasi nung nalaman namin na ‘yung Iloilo City is now the bike capital of the Philippines so why not to use our bicycles to start a little business like this po?” Ledesma told The STAR.

In December 2020, they started the business with limited operations from Friday to Saturday, 5:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. as they cater only to their fellow bikers, business process outsourcing or BPO workers and joggers.

And what’s the menu in their mobile coffee shop? Two hot brews and two cold brews that range from P35 to P99 per cup.

To support their fellow Ilonggos, the beans are purchased from the local coffee sellers in Iloilo City.

Typica Coffee

In Taytay, Rizal, a former Starbucks barista transformed a sari-sari store into a coffee shop.

Owner Drew Magana and his friends first put up a coffee shop in Antipolo City in January 2020. But they were forced to close it down when the pandemic hit in March.

Magana decided to rebrand and build Typica coffee shop. Because he only had small capital, he requested his contractor-friends and even those working in hardware stores for help.

“While I was constructing, since I have limited budget lang, I asked ‘yung mga friends ko na contractor, even ‘yung mga nag-wo-work sa hardware, para lang makita ko para makatipid do’n sa mga gagamitin,” Magana said in an interview with The STAR.

He spent a total of P80,000 for the renovation and construction of the place. His money came from selling cold brew online while people were locked down due to COVID-19.

The grab-and-go stall sells a cup of coffee that ranges from P60 to P100 per cup and also offers cheesecakes.

Drew said he prioritized hiring individuals without experience and then trained them to help people who were affected by the pandemic.

Sobrang dami ding struggling when it comes to putting up a business. And I hope our humble little cafe can also inspire others na makapagtayo sila ng sarili nila,” he added.

Madana had not been to Japan but he studied “Japanese coffee scene” while under quarantine.

He said the customers’ reception was overwhelming when they opened in November.

The Coffee Mobile

In the streets of Cebu, another barista rolled out his own pop-up coffee place in June 2020.

Owner Paul Anzano said the idea started during the lockdown in Cebu. Since he has much free time, he decided to share his own personal recipes with his neighbors using a little cart to sell cold brews.

“There are many challenges we face every time we go out to sell our coffee. One big factor is the weather. The intense heat of the sun is OK but the rain can really give us a huge problem specially (in terms of) keeping our equipment dry. But hey, where’s the spirit of adventure without those challenges?” Anzano told The STAR’s Wheels.PH.

The Coffee Mobile can serve 13 to 15 cups a day if the weather permits and strolls across different neighborhoods in the city.

This Unusual Cafe In Japan Will Make You Feel Like You Stepped Into A Cartoon (18 Pics)

Recently, we presented to you two unusual pop-up art places that quickly caught everyone&rsquos attention. You guessed right! The first one is definitely an insta-worthy cafe in Seoul plastered with comic strips all over the interiors called Cafe Yeonnam-dong 239-20 which is actually the address of the cafe. Located in the famous Yeonnam-dong district, the cafe opened its doors on July 2017 and instantly became world-famous. As for the other one, well&hellip It&rsquos a bit romantic! It&rsquos a pop-up chapel in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas which opened on 18th January this year. The chapel called &ldquoTil Death Do Us Part&rdquo is perfect for insta-worthy weddings, vow renewals, photoshoots, and especially for comic nerd couples! But if these two places weren&rsquot enough for you, this time, we present to you a new pop-up coffee shop in the heart of Tokyo, Japan.

Located in Shin Okubo district, the new pop-up coffee shop is called &ldquo2D Cafe&rdquo. Everything about it makes you feel like you&rsquore in a comic book: starting from the entrance that has a retro feeling in it to well-decorated monochrome decor with white floors, walls, furniture, and other small details. Therefore, when you order a trendy bubble tea (now, you can actually find it in every corner in Japan) or a delicious dessert, the whole thing looks surreal and vivid as your eyes trick you into thinking whether it&rsquos real.

The fun fact is that the furniture is not all monochrome as it&rsquos actually two-tone. All flat surfaces are white while the edges have soft, uneven black stripes just like sketch lines. However, for some things, there&rsquos no deception at all. For example, curtains and flowers are indeed flat-plane artwork.

When it comes to food and drinks, the colors seem to really pop. The cafe offers a wide range of bubble teas &ndash you can choose between pineapple, blueberry, tomato and mango flavors &ndash also patbingsu Korean-style shaved ice desserts which come in seven different flavors &ndash strawberry, banana azuki and more. Hence, visitors are welcome not only to admire the unusual interior design but also taste some delicious new flavors.

Everyone knows how obsessed Japanese people are with comics and other animated things that bring you to another reality. Hence, considering this fact, this cafe should be one of the most visited cafes in Tokyo as it makes the real, three-dimensional world that we live in look like a flat illustration from a comic book. Let&rsquos admit that we all would love to visit this two-dimensional world!
