Sprudge reports the Tokyo cafe is "a wholly owned project funded and managed by Blue Bottle Coffee," and founder/CEO James Freeman says he's currently in talks for two more Tokyo locations. The first location, in the Kiyosumi district, should open sometime later this year. [Sprudge] [Photo: Facebook]
