Lovely book that is well put together
A great resource to learn about new roasters. Also appreciated the brew recipes rom each roaster: I learned some new techniques to try. My only criticism is that print is small and light so for old eyes it is a little tough to read. But worth the effort so still gets 5 stars. I look forward to volume 2.
The world of coffee culture can be overwhelming with origin stories of beans, growing, sourcing, roasting, and brewing. Kurasu's A Year In Japanese Coffee did a wonderful job simplifying this through story telling of many passionate Japanese coffee roasters. This is a homage to the coffee community as well as a teaching lesson for how to brew like those in Japan and around the world.
I am thankful for this read and for Kurasu for putting this together. I will be making a checklist of which coffee shops to visit in Japan because of this book.
Love this, get to learn more about coffee as well as places I haven't been to. Been pinning more "to go" on maps ever since 😆
I have enjoyed reading the stories of different roasters in this book, getting insights into Japanese coffee. The print, design and quality are great as well. I recommend this book!
