% Arabica brings its speciality coffee to London

The lifestyle-oriented Japanese coffee brand % Arabica has opened two new cafes in London, marking the company’s first foray into the UK market. The brand’s flagship store launched earlier this month in the popular east London hotspot Broadway Market, with a sister site located on Covent Gardens’ King Street.

% Arabica has become a globally recognised brand since opening its first flagship in Kyoto in 2014, thanks to its distinctive % logo (said to be reminiscent of coffee cherries on the branch of a coffee plant). The brand has also gained worldwide recognition thanks to its unparalleled store aesthetic and, more importantly, its high-quality specialty coffee menu. The menu is succinct and great emphasis is placed on offering the world’s best beans and brewing products using state of the art equipment.

The London menu offers espresso-based coffees such as espresso, espresso macchiato, Americano, caffe latte, caffe mocha and the brand’s unique Spanish latte, as well as drip based beverages by Chemex. A leader in the “New Wave Coffee” movement, % Arabica produces and roasts its own coffee. The Broadway Market flagship will house its own roasting machine that will allow customers to co-create their own blend in accordance with their own unique taste profile. % Arabica is renowned for its high-performance Slayer Espresso machines which have been customised and built by hand in the USA along with offering a traditional pure Chemex serve for worldwide coffee connoisseurs. Each barista is trained in the brand’s popular latte art designs.
