This is exactly what I was looking for.
I wanted to research Japanese coffee culture and the many talented Roasters there.
This book is well presented and contains back stories to the Roasters and their favourite brewing recipes.
Not just coffee culture but Japan in general. Thanks for compiling and sharing these information/knowledge with us. This made me much more motivated and inspired in pursuing same aspirations here in the Philippines. Hope to get a sip at one of your coffee shops soon. Arigatou gozaimasu!
I enjoyed reading "A Year in Japanese Coffee Vol. 1" on a lazy Sunday; it is dual language printed with English and Japanese. I appreciated that the volume was inclusive of other roaster/shops in Japan and not just focused on Kurasu. Hopefully things will return to normal in 2021 and we will be able to visit the shops mentioned in this volume!
I love the book and it introduces me a lot of Japanese coffee and cafe that I love in Kyoto japan.
Fantastic stuff. Happy to see the wonderful coffee culture in Japan through this "book". So far and so close to you, thanks
