  • The Full Story

    Tokyo Espresso. Our expression of speciality coffee, inspired by Japanese travel. We wanted to roast a coffee worthy of our travels to the Far East. Inspired by Ikigai - a reason for being. This coffee pays homage to the immaculate coffee shops and precise service we experienced while travelling to the land of the rising sun. Tokyo Espresso delivers an illuminating taste of cafe culture in Japan. Sweetness and clean fruity notes are central to this brewed coffee. We chose this beauty from the Suarez region in Colombia because the avant garde roasteries in the capital are highly revered.

    The coffee here is picked by the smallholders with their families and neighbours and generally washed and dried on the farm, often at high altitudes on steep slopes, or brought to a nearby beneficiary for processing. It is then brought to the dry mill or cooperative headquarters for cupping, scoring and sorting for export.

    Due to the many microclimates, faces of the slopes, and changing weather patterns, there is often fresh coffee cropping throughout the year, though generally this is split across the main and mitaca (or ‘fly’) crops. Global warming has seen a significant change across Colombia, bringing challenges to some areas and opportunities to others. Earthquakes and landslides have featured in the coffee areas, but the commitment to quality there remains high.
