Kurasu House Blend Dark is our second creation of Kurasu Blend. It is also our first attempt of making a dark roast coffee.

We often use “clean” to describe specialty coffee. But what is clean? Kurasu believes that a clean cup is one in which the characters of the beans are fully expressed and boosted. We don’t want to sacrifice any flavor during the roasting process, which often leads us to having a lightly roasted coffee. On the other hand, light roast isn't everything nor ultimate form of coffee- depending on places, climates, cultures, there are various standards in the world to define what's good.

Specialty Coffee Association of Japan (SCAJ) notes in the first paragraph of definition of specialty coffee like this- “Specialty coffee should be a coffee that has a superb taste, and that liquid in a cup consumers hold shall provide them with value and satisfaction.”

In Kyoto, with a deeply rooted “Kissaten” culture, we have many customers enjoy darker roast, as it is the traditional kissaten roast. We have been feeling frustrated that we haven't been able to offer them what they prefer, and that encouraged us to create this blend- the blend that celebrates Kyoto's long running coffee culture, and the people who lived with it and who love it, in the past, present and in the future.

The bean temperature is set to reach 15°C to 17°C higher than that of our light roast coffee. We roast all the way through with medium heat for 11 minutes.

Dark Roast just right

Had this a while ago but it doesn't strike me as over-roasted, but rather just right. Good cup in the morning with the flavor as a wake up call


Really happy with this dark roast - I’d say more medium to dark which is great, it has a nice roasty & chocolate flavour which goes well as a milk based drink. The citrus also comes out nicely in espresso too.

Postage was super fast too , package arrived in 2 days from origin to Australia, which is quicker than the domestic post here. And the beans were super fresh at 7 days from roast.

Will continue to order beans from Kurasu who is an incredible roaster and the quality definitely makes up for the postage fee 👌
