While we were designing our new house blend, we took the time to think about how to articulate what we want in a blend. Generally speaking, people usually drink blend as a way to get a stable and consistent cup. But when I think about it, specialty coffee has established its place in the coffee market enough for us to get an affordable and delicious single origin.

All of the 3 origins we are using to make our new blend, Colombia, El Salvador and Ethiopia are equally delicious on their own, and we also have enough green beans to offer them as individual single origin. So, why create a blend?

The answer may not be around the words we said at the beginning, “stable” or “consistency”. Through the process of making this new blend, we reached an opposite conclusion- what makes a blend interesting and irreplaceable is its subtle unpredictability and fluctuation. Any delicious single origin can bore you after a while if you drink it every single day- we thought, this nuanced difference in each cup is actually what brings people back every day. Seize the moment, and enjoy the once in a lifetime encounter in your cup of our new House Blend Light.

With extraction as an espresso in mind, the bean temperature is set to reach 6 to 8°C higher than that of light roast coffee. To avoid losing unique characteristics, we roast all the way through with medium heat for 10 minutes.

Kurasu's Staff Comment

"House Blend Light is a very well loved coffee by our staff. The fruitiness of El Salvador, combined with the body of Colombia, and the floral aftertaste of Ethiopia. There is no such a luxurious blend. Roasted in as a medium roast, it can be enjoyed as either espresso or pour-over coffee.

At Kurasu's cafe we use the House Blend Light as the base of of our espresso."


Roasting and Shipping 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!

*All shipment will be done on the next Wednesday after order is received.
