UCC Coffee Museum in Kobe

Filed under: Domestic, Food, Kansai, Trips — myyearinjapan @ 11:19 pm

Our next stop on our trip after Tottori was Kobe. It only took 4 or 5 hours on the train to get to Kobe, not like the crazy 17 hours we spent getting to Tottori. We only had about half a day in Kobe, but we managed to find a coffee museum to visit, which was interesting. Here’s a link to the museum website. They only have a Japanese website. sorry! The UCC coffee company in general, however, has an English website. Anyway, I wasn’t really able to take pictures inside the museum, but they had exhibits about the history of coffee’s discovery, how coffee developed over time, methods for making coffee, the culture of enjoying coffee, and a room where you could watch all the UCC coffee commercials ever. At the end, they have some computers that quiz you, and if you get enough of the questions right, you get a badge that says you learned a lot about coffee. I’m officially Dr. Coffee now!

After the museum, we went to their coffee shop, because we decided that if we didn’t, what was the point of coming to the coffee museum in the first place?

I forget what they called this, but its coffee with whipped cream and cinnamon sprinkled on top. The cinnamon stick is supposed to be used to mix it.

Even when my friend drank her cappuccino down to the bottom, the heart on top kept its shape.
