A rare find of Asian coffee. We have been seeing more and more tasty coffee from Asian region thanks to the producers' hard work, but the process still seems to be playing too big of a part in terms of what defines the overall quality. If we just want a nice coffee drinking experience, that sort of approach to complete the package is perfectly fine, but we would like to see a good Asian coffee with traditional, simple approach such as washed and natural process.

Until recently, Brazilian coffee was like Asian coffee and was expected to be all nutty and chocolaty, but as the production progresses we started to see more variation, finding a sweeter, more flamboyant yet delicate coffee from Brazil as well. We see this beautiful Frinsa Collective as a glimpse of such bright future Asian coffee may have.

Roasted with relatively low and mild heat, with rather quick temperature progression.

The key is to avoid that distinctive earthy note typical of Indonesian coffee.

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.
