Our friends at Japanese Coffee Co are offering you a chance to win your choice of any of their 200g Japanese Charcoal Sumiyaki Roasted Craftsman Coffees!
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
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 any of 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.
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.

There are many bakeries in Japan that offer these cute little animals (cats and bears etc). They are like a bread filled with all kind of stuff. My favourite is the bear filled with chocolate cream and it goes amazingly well with Japanese coffee.
I tried to add a picture here – but couldn’t figure out how to.
