[CLOSED] GIVEAWAY: Japanese Charcoal Roasted Coffee

Our friends at Japanese Coffee Co are offering you a chance to win one of their Japanese Charcoal Sumiyaki Roasted Craftsman Coffees. Two (2) lucky winners will be chosen!

Japan is renowned for its irrefutable quality when it comes to tea, but did you know that Japan also has a budding coffee culture? 

Charcoal Sumiyaki Roasted Craftsman Coffee

Charcoal Sumiyaki Roasted Craftsman Coffee

Coffee experienced an increase in popularity in Japan in the 1960s, but 27 years before that in 1933, the first charcoal roasted coffee, known as Japanese Sumiyaki coffee, was being developed. Roasting coffee with charcoal requires lower temperatures and more time, yet results is a rich tasting coffee with a distinct savory and smoky aroma (the perfect companion to the snacks and sweets available in our Japanese Snacks & Sweets: "Raku" Care Package)

Previously only available in Japan, Japanese Coffee Co offers you the opportunity to taste this unique hidden treasure at home for the first time.

Charcoal Sumiyaki Roasted Craftsman Coffee

Masters of the Art of Sumiyaki Coffee

Sapporo Coffee Kan is one of the most respected and sought-after Sumiyaki coffee makers in Japan, with over 35 years of history and 10 internationally renowned cafes in Hokkaido. The president, Jin Ito, traveled around the world to find the highest quality coffee beans for its coffee and discovered these in Indonesia, Brazil & Columbia. The company only uses binchotan charcoal to raost its coffee, a type of activated charcoal made from oak that does not have any moisture content and burns at an astoundingly high temperature for long hours.

We typically enjoy hand pour coffees or espresso drinks, go-to medium roasts usually with cocoa notes. That is not to say we don’t sometimes also gravitates towards lighter fruitier notes.

My favorite kind of coffee is the one that intives all of my senses to dive into the experience and be and feel grateful with God, nature and all the people who made it possible. Thats why I value the process each coffee bean went through and how we are all connected on a cup of coffee that we can share with our loved ones
