artless craft tea & coffee は「クラフト」という言葉にフォーカスし、コーヒーは丸山珈琲にご協力いただき、マイクロミルやマイクロロットと呼ばれる小規模農園から、国や風土・生産背景や生産方法などストーリーあふれる「シングルオリジンコーヒー」を一杯ずつ、丁寧にハンドドリップで提供します。焙じ茶も同じく小規模農園で、有機・無農薬の人の手で丁寧に育てられた「クラフト」感ある焙じ茶を、人間国宝が制作した茶釜と常滑焼の急須で、うまみが凝縮される最後の一滴まで丁寧に淹れます。
また、深い味わいのオーガニックミルク(有機牛乳)を取り入れ、コーヒー及び焙じ茶とミルクを組み合わせた、まろやかな一杯もご用意しています。
空間は茶室をデザインコンセプトとし、建築構造用面材で使用されるラーチ合板(構造用のマツなど樹を薄くスライスして張合わせ、パネル状にしたもの)をそのまま意匠としたデザイン、幅5mの一枚鉄板のカウンターに炉をきり、茶釜を入れ、「侘び寂び」そして「未完の美」という日本独自の美意識をベースに現代的なデザイン表現を行いました。
道具は、京都 開化堂(Takahiro Yagi)の茶筒、金網つじ(Toru Tsuj)の茶こし、樂焼/三代小川長樂の長男 小川裕嗣(Hilotsugu Ogawa) の白樂の花器など、進化し続ける日本の伝統工芸品。茶道と同じように道具へのこだわりと配慮を大切にしました。
artless craft tea & coffee は、日本の独自の美意識と現代のトレンドやサードウェーブの融合を目指しています。

Japanese tea & single origin coffee stand

artless craft tea & coffee is a coffee stand produced, designed, and managed by artless Inc.
With a focus on the word craft, we provide single origin coffees from small independent farms, known as micro-lots or micro-mills. From the illustrious lives of the farmers to the manufacturing and distributing process, each coffee has a unique story to tell. Through a carefully calibrated hand dripping process, we deliver these stories one cup at a time.
Our roasted Japanese teas are brewed using organic and pesticide-free tea leaves, harvested by hand in small-scale farms. The tea leaves are delicately roasted and prepared in a Tokoname ware tea pot made by some of the finest craftsman in Japan. Every care is made to ensure that the essence of the leaves are distilled in every single drop.
In addition, we provide an option of adding fresh organic milk to soften and further enrich the coffee or tea.
Designed as a modern take on the Japanese tea room, the space uses untreated larch plywood(sheet material manufactured from thin layers of wood ), often used in architecture, as a key design element. With a small furnace for the tea-kettle cut out of the counter-top(a five meter wide slab of metal), the space embodies the uniquely Japanese notions of wabisabi and incomplete beauty, while articulating a refined modern aesthetic.
From the tea strainer by Kanaami-tsuji Kyoto, to the tea canister by Kaikado, Asahiyaki teapot from Uji, and Hakuraku vases by Ogawa Hirotsugu(eldest son of Ogawa Chouraku); an equal amount of care was taken in the selection of the tools with a focus on honouring the ever-evolving handicrafts of Japan.
The minimalist ambient music plays a key role in crafting the refined atmosphere of the space. In collaboration with sound artists, we have designed a dedicated soundtrack that compliments and builds upon the identity of our brand.
Much like the finest tea rooms, we take great care in ensuring that every detail, from the tools used by the baristas to the intangible ambience, is designed to create a singular space.
artless craft tea & coffee aims to synthesise the unique aesthetics of Japan, with the emerging trend of artisanal crafted goods.
