Good news for caffeine enthusiasts, the renowned Japanese coffee brand, Onibus Coffee, has finally rolled out, opening its first outpost in Thailand in front of Samran Rat’s hip Once Again Hostel. They’re serving steaming cups of love for their soft opening period, officially launching Apr 12.
Despite the diminutive space housing both of its speed and slow bars, standing tables, and few seats, Onibus Bangkok is functional and promises high quality joe imported from Japan, available for both light roast and dark roast beans.
After receiving his barista training in Australia, Japanese founder Atsushi Sakao kickstarted his multi-roaster coffee shop in 2012 and garnered loyal fans for the high quality beans. Aiming to use coffee culture to bind people together, Sakao named his coffee roaster Onibus, meaning “passenger bus” in Portuguese. The brand has four branches in Tokyo and one in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
During its soft opening, the venue will open from 8am-1pm and will open from 8am-5pm after Apr 12. Lucky patrons might be able to meet Sakao in person during this period.
Soi Samran Rat 22, Phra Nakhon, Bangkok.
