"Salem Roaster Jaho Coffee & Tea Expands into Japan" by Jacqueline Cain
Jaho In The Media
"Japan’s thirst for coffee is among the strongest in the world, and it was in Tokyo where Jaho Coffee & Tea founder Anil Mezini was first inspired to open a café. More than a decade later, he’s completing the circle: Jaho just opened its first international location in the Japanese capital.
Jaho is a coffee roaster and café in Salem. It has additional locations in Boston’s South End and Downtown Crossing, which is also a wine bar."
"Jaho Coffee is Opening a Back Bay Wine Bar" by Jacqueline Cain
"Making that afternoon transition from caffeine to booze is about to get a little easier in the Back Bay: Jaho Coffee and Tea is opening its fifth café—and third wine bar—soon at 116 Huntington.
Across the street from the Prudential, in the same building as Lucca Back Bay and next door to the Marriott Copley Place, Jaho will bring a sit-down bar, lounge, and patio seating to the neighborhood..."
"Jaho Fuels Peabody's Coffee Experiment" by Ethan Forman
"Salem’s Jaho Coffee and Tea owner Anil Mezini plans to bring the flavors and atmosphere of a hip new pop-up coffeehouse to downtown Peabody, in a move the city hopes will provide an economic jolt to the struggling Main Street corridor.
The Coffee Experiment, located in a former barber shop at 67 Main St., is truly an experiment."
"Boston's Best Coffee Shop"
By Meghan Marin
"You can’t rush a good cup of joe, and Jaho owner Anil Mezini has been slow-brewing his business for a decade. In 2005, the then-20-something opened his first gourmet coffee shop in Salem. A South End cafe came in 2011. Last summer, a sparkling flagship—Jaho Coffee Roaster & Wine Bar—debuted in a downtown high-rise. Specialty beans are now joined by beer flights, the prerequisite pastries by cheese and charcuterie boards. And his buzz just got bigger."
"Jaho Coffee Roaster & Wine Comes to Downtown Crossing"
By Matt Viser
"The coffee scene in downtown Boston is thriving. Ogawa Coffee opened a few months ago. George Howell opened inside the new Boston Public Market, and is planning a new store in Downtown Crossing in the fall. Thinking Cup was a pioneer in the area, opening its store on Tremont Street in late 2010.
Now add this: Jaho Coffee Roasters & Wine Bar."
"The Best Coffee Shops Around Boston Right Now" by Jacqueline Cain
"Whether it’s espresso or an espresso martini, the spacious, vaguely steampunk Chinatown-adjacent location has your fuel. The large bar (which boasts free Wifi, by the way) is our favorite outpost of this Salem-based roasting company, though it also has branches on the North Shore, in the Back Bay, in the South End, and in Tokyo. (Yes, Tokyo.)"
"Where to Find the Greatest Espresso Martinis in Boston" by Katie Everitt
."Of course this small local chain of boozy cafes makes a killer espresso martini—and as long as Boston allows it, it’s available to go. Get it as is or with a dash of Bailey’s to add some creaminess. The Vietnamese coffee martini will also hit the spot. Find them—and lots of other caffeinated and/or alcoholic treats—at a handful of locations around Boston and Salem, with a Cambridge outpost coming soon."

"Jaho Coffee, Soft Ambience in Nakameguro Cafe" by Jordan Sisking-Weiss
"Kinoshita, a veteran in the Tokyo coffee scene, helped found PLAIN PEOPLE CAFE x Jaho Coffee just over two years ago in September of 2016. After working for three months at Jaho’s flagship store in Salem, Massachusetts as well as at one of the three Boston locations with the company’s founder, Anil Mezini, they decided to open their first shop in Tokyo. “I was so surprised when I saw Jaho [in the U.S.], it was my ideal coffee store,” Kinoshita recalls. Upon hearing about an opportunity to collaborate with Plain People, an upscale Japanese lifestyle brand, she felt that this bright, open space in Nakameguro would be the ideal spot for Jaho to plant roots in Tokyo."
