Kyoto coffee chain % Arabica has made its debut in the UK with its first store in London.
Located right by Covent Garden’s piazza, a tourist destination, it is surrounded by a shopping hub and close to West End theatres.
Meanwhile the brand has already established its presence in Paris and Berlin, with future plans of setting foot in Switzerland and Spain as part of its European strategy.
The brand opened its first-ever shop in Hong Kong at Discovery Bay in 2013 with its headquarters situated in Hong Kong, before planting its world-recognised flagship in Kyoto. Now trading in more than 11 countries, Arabica has more eight stores in the works and plans to continue to expand in new international markets.
