"On sale at 140 yen (tax excluded)." why on earth should you advertise the price without tax? Does Japan have a different taxation for each prefecture? No. So...

I love me some Mt. Rainier coffee. Part of my morning ritual.

That sounds so delicous.

Paying 150 yen for a cup of sugar and coffee is just obscene. Millions of people have to live each day for less than that...

who would pay for this piece of junk, farmed by young children with no shoes or roof over their heads? I'm in the coffee business, i've seen it all.

PepinGalarga: Do you mean we should not drink this brand because children are exploited in making the coffee? But what if the coffee does not sell, doesnt it make the life of these children even harder? I have no way of helping them anyway, so why not drink the coffee? Can you suggest a solution?

Something new! I do not think so, they just copied everyone else including the first ones - Italians but at least they made it with some real coffee and almond essence.

I hate these watery, sugary drinks. Why can't they sell coffee with just milk and no sugar?

They do, right next to this coffee.

So what? I make enough so that I CAN toss away chump change for this kind of luxury and enjoy it. I also couldn't care less about some peasant "shoeless children" supposedly making coffee. It tastes good, I enjoy it, and I will keep on buying it whatever the flavor of the moment is.

I still cannot see what is so good about canned coffee, coffee in cartons or in foam cups. It's just junk food... or junk drink, all things considered. It's days old. Nothing beats fresh ground coffee right off the filter! Strangely enough, natural things are "luxurious" nowadays when people eat adultered, watered down and preservatives-laden stuff just because someone else made it and the packaging looks pretty.

Canned coffee is popular in Japan because it's easy to get and fairly cheap. God knows there are vending machines everywhere. These days you can get brewed coffee cheaper at Doutor or Mister Donuts, but a cup of coffee in a coffee shop used to run at least 300 yen. No refills. And besides in the winter those cans of coffee make great pocket warmers, and when you arrive at your destination, a lukewarm drink.

you are in the coffee business eh? well, shame on you, exploiting farmers and young children with no shoes.

dendon, i dont buy coffee from farms that employ children under 16, and back home we follow US and State minimum wage laws. There's also accident insurance, workers comp, unemployment insurance, etc. etc. etc.

Is it actually coffee? I cannot see the word "coffee" anywhere on the package. What language is caffe with that accent on the e?

My guess is that this was produced by chemists not underage,underpaid children.

I suspect it contains almond and coffee flavouring. At least, the company seems honest enough not to call it coffee although I doubt it earns the title Espresso.

It's still 300 or more at many places. Which reminds me...I've never understood why people in Nagoya rave about how great a deal Komeda is because they throw in a "free" piece of toast and boiled egg with their 500 yen cup of coffee.

Wait, I think you people are confused.

Mt Rainier is in Seattle, not Sierra Leone.

This coffee is made by aging hipsters, not child slaves.

Mt Rainier is in Seattle, not Sierra Leone.

The coffee beans they use aren't grown anywhere near Seattle.

To answer some previous questions (that were perhaps rhetorical) along the lines of 'who would pay for 150 yen for this?', well, I can tell you exactly who does: The guys that stand next to me on the subway in the morning and breath on me, and my coffee breath'd boss. Thats who.

That would be Italian. "Latte" is also Italian, unsurprisingly. If you ever see "Cafe Latte", that's wrong, it's a mixture of Italian and French.

Those sell for 98 yen at my local supermarket- I've just bought one, coincidentally.

i love Italian Espresso. All other coffees do not taste good.
