If you’re in Japan, you can get a unique version of Starbucks coffee, not available anywhere else! It’s called “Origami” coffee.

Recently, a very generous regular StarbucksMelody.com reader from Japan traveled to Seattle and I met up with her at the Roastery. She shared a goody-bag of things for me! Thank you so much Izumi for your generous box of fun treats from Japan!

Essentially, it’s a special pour-over that makes a perfect 8 ounces of coffee. I tried it at home. Simply take the Origami packet out, rest atop a small coffee mug, and pour over it 8 ounces of boiling water.

On Sunday, December 13th, I took a package of the Origami coffee to the all-new Starbucks located at 7th and Westlake in downtown Seattle. One of the baristas brewed the coffee while I took photos. You can see how totally cool this is!
