They sell coffee drip bags as well as…

…coffee beans from their roastery.

My friend had a cafe latte, and I had a cascara tea latte and a Momiji-manju (Hiroshima’s sweet delicacy).

Cascara, also known as coffee cherry tea, is made from the berries/cherries of the coffee plant, whereas the coffee beans are the seeds of the berries.

They also had a frozen banana mocha and a cascara fizz, both which I was intrigued by but did not get to try at that time.

Two of the Uji-tei lunch set (usually it comes with a bowl of five-grain rice, but I got bread and carrot jam instead, because of brown rice allergies).
