Along with all the foodie trends out there today a personalized latte with your face on it is possible at the Nissan Crossing in Ginza. Once you venture into the car store, surrounded by the highest technology out there with cars, go up to the second floor and there you can find the Nissan café. The café has it down, you have the option to choose iced or hot; a regular latte, matcha latte or for kids especially a hot chocolate for just 500 yen. They also offer 3 flavors of Cold Press Sodas (cold pressed juice with sparkling soda) for 700 yen.
Once you choose the drink, with an ipad the barista asks to take your photo, which you can do either with a friend or by yourself. It is a cool process to watch. The ipad is connected to a ‘ripple maker’ machine, similar to one of a 3D printer, uses little drips of coffee to create the image onto the latte. This machine is available in just select stores worldwide, due to the price and the new technology.
In less than two minutes, you have your personalized latte ready to drink. The café has an awesome view of Ginza crossing, which allows for great people watching from above. But be careful you may find yourself sitting there for a few hours watching everyone’s reaction to when their latte comes out. The café is a must and easy to get to, being just a couple of steps away from Ginza subway exit.
