Explore the City with Malte 8: World-Class Beans


This time, we delved deep into the work of work-class beans, drank too much coffee for our weak body, and replenished our spirit with some of the best chocolate you can find on the planet. Going to the Akebono area in Kashiwa, at "Ame no hi no Coffee" and "Tribal Cacao" you get bewitched by the magic of the best beans in the world. Lend me your ears and listen (or better lend me your eyes and read) to the two stories that are about to unfold.

Hey! I’m Malte, the weird Germany guy. I moved to Kashiwa at the end of 2012 and have been living here since.

Graduating from Reitaku University in 2018, I entered the University of Tokyo’s graduate school to do some additional research.

I absolutely fell in love with the kind people of Kashiwa. Everyone welcomed me with open arms, and I got financially and emotionally saved more than once. Through my articles and pictures, I try to show everyone what kind of beautiful place Kashiwa can be.
