So we have tons of different coffee brands here in the states so why do some of us even care for imported coffee? In fact I rarely drink coffee except if I need to drive long distance but I was attracted to this one specific brand.

So I believed some of you may already know what I’m talking about and for some you’ve probably not even heard of this brand.

The abbreviation stands for Ueshima Coffee Company which is a company founded by Tadao Ueshima in the 30's in Kobe Japan. When I first heard of this brand is when I went to Asia and my friend was telling me that this is a very popular coffee house over there in fact, he added much better than Starbucks.

So now the revelation. Remember the package I got from Japan?

Well it doesn’t exactly contain coffee but if you can see thru the plastic it has the UCC brand on it.

I’m probably late in the game but these are 5 die cast Mercedes Benz that a lot of bloggers have been talking about. The company does not make die cast but they have included these wonderful models as part of their promo when you buy their coffee. You can’t get this in the States (at least not yet) but the set (cars only) has been available as a pre-order and now for sale in certain Japanese online stores and even ebay. I usually don’t order a complete set as some models are not as good looking as others with the exception of the HW Historic Japan where all the die cast look attractive. This is my second complete set after reading good reviews about them. So here they are.

Do you have any favorites among these?

Lastly, as I was writing this article I was enjoying myself with an ice cold bottled Starbucks Frappuccino.
