    How we roast this coffee

    Overall moderate temperature rise, so we roast slowly and carefully with relatively low heat. However, after the first crack, we pace up to preserve light, floral notes of Ethiopian coffee. Roasting up to 208.5C in 9.5 minutes.

    I always love kurasu light roast

    James B.
    Great roast.

    Had this at home and it is very delicate. The roast profile is a little darker than I was expecting but it was a nice balance between the taste of the seed itself and the roast flavor. Went to Canada for a trip from the US and stumbled upon an excellent cafe called Milky’s Cloud Room at Stackt Market in TO and they just so happened to be be brewing this same coffee on a halogen syphon with a cloth filter and it was the best cup of coffee I’ve had in an entire year. Not exaggerating. If you know what you’re doing and you have the right equipment this coffee is phenomenal.


    Lovely coffee with bright notes!

    Fruit n excellent

    Nice and smooth

    This coffee is excellent. You can taste all the notes of flavor. It’s a light roast so it is easy to drink. I’m really enjoying it. Can’t wait to drink another cup.

    Our Roasting Schedule

    We roast all of our coffee in Kyoto, at our Nishijin Roastery, up to twice a week on Monday and Sunday.

    We then pack and ship the freshly roasted beans out on weekdays (please note that our fulfilment operation closes on weekends).

    The roasting date on your coffee will be between 14 days prior to your order, and while we try our best to ship as younger roast as possible, we actually recommend you waiting at least 1 week after the roasting date to enjoy the fully developed flavor, so if you receive a very fresh roast please let the coffee rest for about a week and give it a try!

    *Please note that any order made after 3pm on Saturday will likely to be fulfilled on the next week’s roasting day. If the order contains 500g~ coffee, please kindly note that the coffee will be roasted and fulfilled on the next week's roasting round, and it may take longer to fulfil the order. 

    Green Beans

    We understand the quality of the raw material determines most of the quality of the end product. That is why the selection of green beans, and knowing the source and traceability is so important to us.

    We work with only reputable green bean importors - Wataru & Co., Ltd., TYPICA Holdings, Inc., along with directly sourcing from mirco lots from around the world. We make sure to understand as much as possible the farmers, their approach to harvest, processing, and logistics to reach Japan.

    Our Roast

    At Kurasu we roast with convection drum roaster, Loring S35 Kestrel, and semi-hot blast type roaster, Giesen W6A.

    The roaster helps us roast a coffee with a soft, complex flavour and texture.

    Coffee beans are naturally fragrant and have fresh and juicy acidity and sweetness of fruits. We make sure not to develop the roast too long and conscious to find the perfect balance to maximize the potential of each coffee.

    Quality Control

    We roast 1-2 times a week - at each session, right after roasting and on the day before the roasting, we check the quality of our roasted coffee.

    We pay close attention to the batches we adjusted the roasting profile for and any batches that show readings with any difference to usual.

    Roasting is an ever evolving process for us. There's always some small adjustments that can be made and we strive for ship out the best roasted coffee we can possibly produce.
