A cafe in Kyoto is gaining attention on social media for serving coffee in a large block of ice.
Key points:
  • The unique drink is served as Cafe 33, a cafe restaurant located at the Hyatt Regency Kyoto.
  • A video first shared by Instagram user @jukananan727 in June 2023 has recently gone viral, with people eager to try the drink for themselves.
The details:
  • The video shows a staff member serving the block of ice and pouring coffee into a glass-shaped hole at its center.
  • It appears the drink may be enjoyed in three ways: (1) as black coffee, (2) latte or (3) with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
  • Customers can also savor a good view of an outdoor garden through a huge glass window.
  • TikTok user @jesseogn, who ordered the same drink in June, shared that the choice of using a block of ice was practical as the “ice didn’t melt into the coffee and kept everything cold for over 30 minutes.”
  • Whether customers can take the block of ice home is unknown.
  • The drink costs 2,000 yen (approximately $13). It is only offered to five customers per day between 2:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., according to @jukananan727.
  • Instagram users are amazed by the unique drink, with one commenting “Japan is on another level.”
  • “It would have been so funny if you didn’t have a straw and had to lift that brick to drink from it,” another user wrote.
  • “That’s not iced coffee. That’s coffeed ice,” another quipped.
