Aman Tokyo (Otemachi, Tokyo, general manager Tomoko Yagi) will host Italian restaurant “Alva” and “Coffee Mameya -Kakeru-” for three days from Saturday, February 24th to Monday, February 26th, 2024. We will be holding a collaboration dinner with.
Masakazu Hiraki, Western Cuisine Director in charge of Aman’s Japan region, offers a course of simple, traditional Italian cuisine that makes use of the best ingredients, and roasters with excellent roasting techniques are selected from around the world to serve high-quality coffee. We will present you with a special menu that you can enjoy by pairing with coffee from Coffee Mameya -Kakeru-, which is attracting attention by doing so.
Alva’s first collaboration dinner between “Italian food” and “coffee” is a total of eight full-course dishes of Alva’s Italian cuisine carefully calculated and created by Coffee Mameya Kakeru’s baristas. A unique dinner event where you can enjoy pairings with different coffees and mocktails.
[Image 1:×2600.jpg] For this dinner event, Coffee Mameya – Kakeru – carefully selected and procured unique coffee beans from roasters around the world, including those from Ethiopia, Colombia, and Panama. Using their sophisticated skills, baristas perfect their approach to cooking by creating a balance between various sour and astringent tastes, as well as the flavors of the soil and variety. Pairing coffee is served by changing the extraction concentration according to the dish and lowering the temperature to around 20 to 30 degrees, allowing you to enjoy the coffee’s terroir just like wine.

Start with the rosemary and squid ink grissini starter, followed by a milk brew made with Ethiopian ‘Lollipop’ coffee steeped in milk for 13 hours. Ethiopian berry and floral flavors go well with milk, making this a milk coffee with a taste similar to royal milk tea.
For the cold appetizer, shorthorn beef tartare, we used Geisha ‘El Burro’ from Panama, which has a tannin and fermentation like Burgundy wine that combines with the sweetness and acidity of the meat. For the warm appetizer, milt munyaia, by combining ‘Lollipop’, a complex and deep Ethiopian coffee that brings to mind strawberries and cacao nibs, with drip coffee at a temperature lowered to 20 degrees, it creates a relaxing and rich milt flavor. It highlights the sweetness.
Next, Alva’s signature dish, spaghetti with sea urchin and Chinese ink, is a unique mocktail made with Ethiopian ‘Lollipop’, which has the gorgeous aroma of jasmine, sharp acidity, and milky texture. The grilled sweet sea bream scales are served with white grapes, green apples, and Colombian ‘Las Flores Java’, which has a refreshing acidity reminiscent of Darjeeling tea and a hearty sweetness. And, for the meat dish Kasumi Duck Alloy Roast, we will prepare a blended coffee blended with the image of spicy red wine. The tannin and spiciness of coffee created by blending three types of coffee from Panama, Costa Rica, and Colombia, as well as the aroma of aged oak barrels, will make you enjoy the marriage of it with duck meat. For dessert, we chose an elegant milk brew mocktail from Colombian geisha ‘Linarco Rodriguez’, flavored with yuzu peel, and finished with ‘ONE’ from Honduras, which has a pleasant balance of dark
chocolate-like sweetness and bitterness. , served as hot milk coffee. Please look forward to the pairing of Italian cuisine created by Hiraki’s honed sensibilities and the unique terroir flavors of all eight carefully selected types of coffee.
