Coffee… in an ice cream cone… genius!

For a country where tea is almost as common as water, Japan is still just as much in love with coffee as the rest of the world. They’ve even come up with some pretty unusual ways of serving coffee, bringing us everything from coffee rice to coffee you can spread on toast.

But one cafe in Tokyo is preparing coffee in possibly the most delicious-looking way we’ve seen yet: by pouring it into an ice cream cone.

▼ It’s so good, even the coffee is smiling.

今日は朝か10時から3時間結婚式の打ち合わせに😂💦 長かったー😩 でも、聞きたいことやりたい事が聞けたし会場をしっかり見れたから良かった😊💕後、4カ月後悔ないようにしっかり準備します🤔 写真は気になってたカフェに行ってみた💕 コーヒー飲みに行ったのにデザート食べた気分🍴 そういえば、朝一電車に乗っていたら隣に立ったおば様がまぁーうるさい😖 携帯いじってばっかりで!だから子供がろくなのにならない!とか携帯なんて家に置いてきたらいいのよ!とか、いやいや携帯置いていったら意味なくね?と突っ込みどころ満載なほどブツブツうるさかった🙄💦 あまりにもうるさかったので、静かにしてくれません?って言ったけどまぁー黙らない。 若いからってバカにして!と言うからそうですねって言ったけどまだ黙らないかもう一回今度は〝うるさいから〟黙ってくれません?って言ったけど黙らないのでブチ切れかけた朝でした🙄 相手にしなきゃいいんだろうけど、ちょい混みの電車でまっとなりでブツブツうるさかったからつい言ってしまった😂💦 ま、関わらないのが一番ですね。 旦那さんにも気にするなって言われたけど、、😂💦 #カフェ#カフェ巡り#コーヒー#コーヒー巡り#コーヒー散策#コーヒー散歩#coffee#coffeetime#coffeeshop#coffeelover#coffeestand#coffeestagram#cafe#cafetime#cafestagram#ilovecoffee#ilovecafe#coffeecone#tokyocoffee#tokyocafe#東京#高円寺#日本#tokyo#kouenji#japan#朝から#イライラ#隣がうるさい#ブチ切れそう

The name of the cafe is, appropriately, Coffee Cone and they’re located in Koenji, Tokyo. While they serve up a variety of typical cafe fare, unexpectedly the items getting the most attention are their coffee cones.

The coffee cones come in a variety of flavors, just like ordering a real ice cream cone, coming in chocolate-dipped, sprinkle-dipped, and other varieties. Here’s just a sampling of some to make you wish you were in Koenji right now:

▼ If you’re not in a coffee mood, then you can get a cone-full of rich,
green matcha instead. With a chocolate-matcha-dipped cone as well, of course!

▼ Or how about a fancier brew in your cone? I love the little mugs at the bottom
that both prevent leakage, and let you sip up any drips that may get through.

▼ The usual latte art is a smily face, but it seems like
they are more than capable of other designs as well.

▼ And if you’d prefer just a good old fashioned ice cream cone, they’re more
than happy to oblige. (Complete with cute anti-drip mug at the bottom!)

▼ Even just this slice of bread covered in chocolate
and nuts that they have looks amazing!

If you’re in the Tokyo area and if you’re a fan of coffee and ice cream, then be sure to give yourself a treat this weekend by heading down to Coffee Cone.

Or hey, feel free to skip Starbucks on Monday morning and head into work with one if these bad boys in hand instead! Unless, of course, you already have a 20-pound (9-kilogram) Starbucks coffee cup waiting to be filled.
