Coffee Story Update

Date Posted: 2000-06-23

A while back I wrote a story on coffee and offered several suggestions for places on Okinawa that sell inexpensive coffee. Well, while seeing a friend off at the Naha airport and walking to the departure gate we came across this little donut shop that sold coffee for 100 yen. Thatís right, 100 yen! And at a Japanese airport to boot!

Needless to say, a sampling of this new find was in order. I expected the brew in the styrofoam cup to be a bit lackluster in taste, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It was fresh and quite good, if not a bit on the strong side. The hardest part was convincing myself that Iím drinking really cheap coffee at a venue of the kind more famous for six-dollar ham sandwiches. Aside from the free coffee at USO lounges in major stateside airports, it doesnít get any cheaper than this!

One final update. In the same article I wrote about the coffee at the Hypermart food court in Awase, and I mentioned that the coffee there comes with one free refill. Well, as it turned out, the refill is unlimited. Last week I had my fill of two cups of American coffee and another two of latte, fresh-brewed from the coffee machine and all for 250 yen. If you donít mind the loud noise from the nearby arcade, or the effects of the ensuing insomnia, this is probably the farthest you can stretch your coffee money in Japan.
