Crafted from black soybeans, Hototogisu Farm’s black soybean latte offers a pleasant departure from the typical matcha latte. Roasted soybean powder, known as kinako, is often used in traditional Japanese desserts such as dango, warabi mochi, and wagashi as a flavor-enhancing coating. Here it adds a subtle caramelized nuttiness, similar to that of roasted hazelnuts, and is complemented by raw and brown sugar to produce a lightly sweetened, caffeine-free latte. The kinako used in this latte is particularly unique given that it is made from black soybeans, which gives the resulting drink an eye-catching speckled appearance. 

Hototogisu Farm produces a wide variety of homegrown agricultural goods as well as a selection of baked goods, all of which are gluten-free. No wheat is used in their workspaces so that those with allergies can have peace of mind when enjoying their food. In October 2018, the brand expanded and opened a cafe in the Tsushima area of Okayama City which serves its baked goods, such as its popular rice flour brownies, as well as salads and lunch plates that highlight their prized vegetables.

Suggested uses: Mix the contents of the packet in 140ml (~½ cup) of milk (use plant-based milk for a vegan alternative). Enjoy hot or cold over ice. For a fluffier latte, try using a milk frother!
