October's roaster - Glitch Coffee & Roasters / Tokyo

by Yozo Otsuki September 16, 2015 0 Comments

Located in the Tokyo neighborhood of Jimbocho, Glitch sits on a quiet street corner of this off-the-beaten-track area known for its used bookstores. Kiyokazu Suzuki, the passionate and knowledgeable owner, opened the doors to Glitch in April, aiming to share his considerable coffee knowledge with locals and visitors alike.

After spending ten years studying the coffee craft under the tutelage of world barista champion Paul Bassett, Suzuki san enhanced his own reputation by gaining a Q grade certification with the SCAA (Specialty Coffee Association of America), and by becoming the 2014 Japan AeroPress champion.

The understated yet sophisticated interior of Glitch, with its white and natural wood tones and metal accents, reflects Suzuki san approach to his craft - a mix of embracing the third wave coffee culture while also paying homage to his Japanese roots. In the corner of the small cafe sits a German Probat machine, allowing customers to watch on as beans are roasted, filling the air with a lovely aroma.

If you are in the area, we encourage you to visit Glitch in person and enjoy a fresh cup of pour-over coffee in the relaxed, light-filled cafe.

Glitch’s masterfully roasted Rwandan and Ethiopian single origin coffees will make up your October subscription, delivering you, the discerning subscriber, the taste of a full-blooded Japanese roast without the commute to grab it.
