This Coffee Cup From Starbucks Japan Is a Classy Piece of Art

It's made from Sasebo's traditional porcelain.

Coffee enthusiasts are certainly going to love Starbucks Coffee Japan’s Coffee Cup Mikawachi 177ml, the new addition to their JIMOTO made series. Created with passion by the local manufacturers of Sasebo City in Nagasaki Prefecture, this edition is only available at two Starbucks branches. One is the Sasebo, Yonkacho branch, and the other is the Sasebo 5-bangai branch.

Starbucks started the JIMOTO made series in 2015, a collection of designer items imbued with Japanese traditional craftsmanship that promoted the local industry in all regions in Japan.

This edition, called Mikawachi Yaki, is a traditional porcelain in Sasebo. It was first used as a coffee cup in Japan about 420 years ago. Since its completion in cooperation with Kasen-gama, people have enjoyed drinking coffee using the Mikawachi cup.

The cup has a simple lining on its rim and bottom, symbolizing the rich sea of Sasebo. There’s also an anchor imprinted inside the cup, a whale on the saucer, and the names of Starbucks, Kasen-gama and Sasebo Community on the bottom surface.

With its neat and dainty appearance, who wouldn’t want to add the Mikawachi Yaki cup to their growing collection? Don’t forget to visit any of the two Starbucks branches that carry this wonderful item!
