Mr. Takayuki Minami, is a creative director who curates things made all over the world with his own unique vision and reconstructs them into new things. He is also familiar as the presiding officer of FreshService, and a new cafe called “OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY”, curated by Mr. Minami who has a deep knowledge of coffee, has opened in Shimokitazawa.

Along with the opening on July 30th (Friday), a special item that Fresh Service has made as a special order for a popular coffee gear brand will be released only at the Shimokitazawa store, so make sure not to miss out!

Limited coffee gear with a triple brand name is now available.

Kalita × FreshService × OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY NEXT G2 ¥66000

Fresh Service has ordered bespoke models of the popular coffee grinder “NEXT G” made in Japan, which was originally developed by combining the technologies that Kalita has cultivated over many years. This is a limited edition model with the name “OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY” etched.

It is equipped with an electrostatic eliminator to prevent powder scattering, which is a problem for many electric mills. The ground powder falls straight down and accumulates in the can.

It prevents powder from sticking to the main body and can, and is easy to clean. In addition, the motor has a reduced number of revolutions and is therefore quieter.



Power supply: 100V 50 / 60Hz

Power consumption: 60W

Time: 5 minutes

Body weight: 2300g

Hopper capacity: 60g

A lineup of bespoke mugs with the “OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY” logo on, have also been developed with RIVERS who create products focused on ‘drink wear’ and Fresh Service.

The tall-sized “THE TAKE OUT” cup has a full capacity of 390 ml. The double wall eliminates the need for paper sleeves and has a highly airtight lid structure that means liquid does not spill even when knocked over.

The material used is BPA-free polypropylene, so it’s nice that it is make heavy-duty so that it won’t break even if dropped. It is also compatible with microwave ovens, making it is a great multi-purpose tumbler that can be used not just for everyday use but also as an outdoor or travel companion.

Both are planned for a limited release only at “OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY Shimokitazawa” scheduled to open on July 30th (Friday). Since it is a bespoke model that combines the essence of Fresh Service into classic coffee gear, it is expected to sell out quick so make sure you get there on opening day!


This flagship store is like a “laboratory” for delicious coffee.

“OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY” is a new concept experience-based cafe that was born in Kyoto as a place for open innovation that creates extra value and community beyond the taste of coffee.

The second store, “OGAWA COFFEE LABORATORY Shimokitazawa,” will be a place like a “laboratory” where you can learn methods for brewing delicious coffee with the concept of “experience-based coffee store.” For example, you can use any combination of 40 types of equipment that baristas love, and you can fully try roasting and extraction by yourself.

11 kinds of single origins, 10 kinds of blends, etc. are all available for tasting (for a fee), and coffee beans can be reserved at the store as well as taken home, making it the perfect “laboratory” for coffee lovers.
