Kanazawa in Western Japan's Ishikawa Prefecture has been Japan's center of very fine goldsmithing for centuries. Its artisans create amazing objects using foil with a thickness of 0.1 to 0.125 millionths of a meter (one meter is about 3.2 ft, but when we're talking millionths, does it really matter?). Combining this amazing technology with high-quality Brazilian coffee, Kanazawa-based Hakuichi brings you the ultimate in luxurious coffee-drinking: the Kanazawa Gold Leaf Coffee Set!
That gold foil is edible is not something new: Hakuichi is one of several companies (and not just in Japan) who produce gold flakes that you can sprinkle on your food or drink. Here, the flakes are mixed with freeze-dried Brazilian coffee and come in two forms: in two 45 g (1.5 oz) jars and a box of five 2 g (0.07 oz) sachets. This way you can either use them at home or take them with you to work or on a trip. And since this is instant coffee, all you need to enjoy a fairy tale of a cup is just some hot water!
