The time I spent on the experience with Vaughan and Nik was fantastic. As a coffee lover, it was enlightening to be able to taste and learn so much about coffee in another culture/country, while learning a lot of the industry's methods (such as tasting). Vaughan and Nik, specially were great people with very contagious positive personalities. It makes you feel you've made new friends who you want to hang out with on any given Sunday.

Being greeted by Vaughan & Nik on the first night was like being greeted by old friends. I had just arrived in Tokyo and their warmness and enthusiasm made me instantly feel at home in the city. This was my first Airbnb Trip, and as an Airbnb employee I had high expectations which they vastly exceeded! I would 100% recommend this trip to anyone who wants to discover unique hangouts in the city, drink some excellent coffee and get to talk to some super interesting people! Thanks Vaughan & Nik :)

Absolutely amazing experience! I could discover new view of Tokyo and meet wonderful people through coffee. Every experience was unique and meaningful, after experiences I love and respect more coffee than before! One of highlight during trip was visiting 3 different cafe and kissaten ( Japanese old style coffee shop) . I would never know there are such lovely place in Tokyo without Host's, Vaughan and Nik. They are super friendly and enthusiastic to make our days memorable. I truly appreciate all they have done and literally they made my days! I highly recommend this trip to whoever loves coffee and keen to discover deep Tokyo!

What an experience! Little did I expect that Tokyo has so much coffee culture and Vaughan and Nik are superb hosts. Vaughan is so down to earth and he knows everyone. Ask any baristas in Tokyo and they will only have good things to say about him. They even gave recommendations of what to do this week based on our listings' locations and personal interests. If you want a caffeine fueled adventure with a hint of craftsmanship, this is it.
