Prayers Answered – Chocolate Jesus Coffee – Okinawa

Chocolate Jesus Coffee Okinawa - The Directory Coffee Blog11.jpg

A couple of months before I left Okinawa a little store opened up called Chocolate Jesus Coffee (quite fitting for an Easter post) and it quickly became one of my locals. Owner Kazufumi Shinzato also runs a skate and apparel shop on the island by the same name and has carried over his branding into the new space. The whole thing oozes attitude and I simply love it. Specialty coffee is by Mame Pore Pore Roasters in Okinawa city and is served up in a converted garage space full of La Marzocco PB hardware, funky hip-hop beats and smiling baristas.

‘Dope’ is the only adjective I can think of right now.

  1. The whole place looks awesome! They’ve managed to pull together the skate and apparel shop and coffeehouse in one space really well, I love it. I wonder how they came up with the name Chocolate Jesus Coffee? I’ve been seeing a whole lot of Easter posts lately of people serving their coffees in actual Easter Eggs, which is all very well, but it’s nice to read about something a bit different!
