Located in the San A Ginowan Convention City is a small shop called the KALDI Coffee Farm. The name of this shop is slightly misleading. Originally I had thought that with a name like Coffee Farm coupled with the enthusiastic woman serving samples of coffee the main theme of the items in this shop would be . . . you guessed it. . . coffee but this was not the case. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this was not only a place to get fresh gourmet coffee but also a variety of import goods.
There was everything from snacks to wine, noodles to marshmallows flavored like coffee and tea and so much more.
One of the great things about this shop is that they have a variety of very specific items from America (I honestly have no idea how common the items from other parts of the world are in this shop) that you otherwise would not have the ability to find here in Okinawa. This could be your favorite type of maple syrup, arm and hammer baking soda or even fluff. These items are all priced accordingly and in my opinion are not too bad if you don’t have access to them elsewhere on the island.
Although this is a great place to visit it is important to keep in mind that it is small and very crowded. This makes it a place not ideal for carriages or even young children. Even a big purse can be a hassle as you try to navigate the narrow aisles and move around the other customers.
Whether you are looking for a little taste of home or some delicious fresh coffee head over to Ginowan and check out this small shop!
