Visit Sapporo’s premier coffee roaster, Morihico
Morihico should be a coffee-lover’s first stop in Sapporo. Its first location renovated a leaf-laden, 70-year-old wooden house a couple of blocks south of the Maruyama Koen station in 1996 – one of several now sprinkled across the city. Morihico serves 10 blends and single-origin roasts in its bespoke ceramic cups, as well as a delectable dessert menu. Try the nut-flavoured Yaki Latte as well as the gateau fromage, which uses Hokkaido’s feted dairy. Elsewhere, Atelier Morihico at the west end of Odori Park is the roaster’s flagship inner-city venue, while the Plantation south of the Toyohira River houses Morihico’s roastery plus a shabby-chic café.
