[CLOSED] GIVEAWAY: Japanese Charcoal Roasted Coffee from Japanese Coffee Co

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.

I’m already subscribed to both newsletters! I’m not the coffee drinker in the family, but I’d love to win this for my mom. If I had to guess, I think she’d say coffee goes great with some kind of red bean pastry, like dorayaki.

A great food pairing with coffee would be a slice of tiramisu or cheese cake. The energetic caffiene and sugar meshes well together!

I am subscribing to both Kokorocares and Japanese Coffee Co. newsletters and also following both on Instagram. I was so excited to see that we could order Coffee Kan! I had the most amazing cup of coffee at Coffee Kan in Kurashiki! I am not sure which blend it was since it was a cappuccino with luscious cream on top, it took a while to make but the first sip was heaven! It is great that variety boxes are being offered as one of the shopping choices so I can explore the different blends. Thanks for providing the flavor profiles for each!

The best pairing I’ve had with Japanese coffee was a basic black with a croissant on the shore of Kawaguchiko in the fall.

This is so exciting!
Coffee goes so well with many Japanese desserts, but one of my most memorable is with kasutera. There’s a small cafe in Matsushima, Miyagi, where they make kasutera on the property, and you can get a slice with coffee while you look out the window at the beautiful coastline of Matsushima. The building construction and interior design brings the experience to the next level. The images above remind me of that cafe.
As for the type of coffee (roast, origin, etc.)… I think it depends on what you’re pairing it with!
