Mocha Coffee

Cafe, Middle Eastern, $$$

This cozy spot in Daikanyama may be tiny, but they know their stuff. Named Mocha after the Middle Eastern seaport Mokha (not the coffee-chocolate blend), their specialty is coffee beans from Yemen, which offer a unique flavor profile unlike anything you’ve tried yet.
