I recently read a post on SoraNews24 about how much coffee is at various coffee spots in Japan. Here's the list from most to least expensive.
Renoir（ルノアール）580 yen Ko:Hi:Kan (珈琲館) 510 yen Hoshino Coffee (星乃珈琲) 410 yen Komeda Coffee (コメダ珈琲) 420 yen Ueshima Coffee House (上島喫茶) 360 yen Tully’s Coffee（タリーズ）310 yen Starbucks（スターバックス）302 yen Excelsior (エクセルシオール) 300 yen Mister Donut （ミスタードーナツ）270 yen Café de Crié（カフェドクリエ）260 yen Pronto (プロント) 240 yen Beck’s Coffee（ベックスコーヒー）230 yen Doutor（ドトール）220 yen St Marc (サンマルク) 216 yen Veloce (カフェ・ベローチェ) 190 yen
I think getting a cup of coffee is expensive in Japan. I sometimes get a cup at Mister Donut because they give you a refill at no extra charge. I have on occassion bought a cup of coffee at Starbuck's or Tully's when I am traveling. I once ate at Cafe de Crie in Sapporo, but I didn't get coffee. The others I don't know. A few times I have purchased a 100 yen cup of coffee at the Lawson's convenience store that was pretty good. Usually I just drink my coffee at home and drink water when I am out.
What about you? How much is too much for a cup of coffee? If you drink coffee out, what coffee shop do you prefer? If you don't drink coffee, what do you drink when you go out? Inquiring minds want to know.
Two continued with finishing the crazy quilt bags and the rest of us worked on kogin. For the kogin they had to choose which pattern and what color thread. For this first kogin project, they are using #5 perle cotton because it behaves better than the kogin thread.
The first line of kogin must be counted correctly and the other rows follow. I told them the first row might seem difficult but it would be easy after that. It took over an hour to count out the first row and I was afraid they would want to give up. After that first row, they found out I was right!
Another finished crazy quilt bag - this one round, with a drawstring.
Two more kogin starts.
Here is a kogin toolie set (needlebook and fob) I am working on.
Leonore who blogs at Needle, Pen & Sword is joining us remotely. She stitched this with ecru thread and wants to try it again with white because the ecru didn't show up well on this fabric.
