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 light roast coffee. We roast all the way through with medium heat for 11 minutes.

Kurasu Staff's Comment

"A blend for any occasion. It is pairs well with either bread or sweet treats. Whether you like dark roast or like roast this blend can be enjoyed by anyone, when you're not sure which to choose."


When will I receive my coffee bean order?

It depends on when your order is placed.

A. If the order is placed before 3 pm on a Saturday your order will be roasted the following Sunday and the next week’s Monday.
It will then be shipped off that week on Wednesday. 

B. If the order is placed before 10 am on a Wednesday there are TWO possible shipping flows.

1. If we have that coffee beans in stock, we will be shipping them that Friday: We will be shipping the extra beans that were roasted the previous Sunday and Monday. We are only able to ship the number of coffee beans we have in our inventory, which is why the majority of the time we will not be shipping coffee bean orders that are more than 200g. However, if we have enough in our inventory, we will also be shipping bean orders of 500g or 1kg. 

2. If we don’t have that coffee beans in stock, we will be shipping them on a Wednesday, the week after: The coffee beans will be roasted the upcoming Sunday and Monday.
