About this coffee - by Head Roaster Kosuke
I purchased this lot from our friend Kadokawa-kun, representative of COYOTE. This is an exceptionally special lot produced by El Salvador COE 2021 winner, Mr. Ever Diaz. In fact, the lot I purchased is exactly the same as the winning lot except that it was harvested on a different day...So I guess it's "almost" a COE winning lot, right?
This lot shone through amongst all other new crops I was introduced to, and I am so grateful for Kadokawa-kun giving me this wonderful opportunity to roast such a valuable coffee.
How we roast this coffee
Temperature rise is moderate throughout. I try not to put too much pressure to avoid bitterness, so I crisply finish at 10 minutes, 196C.
This was very enjoyable. Brewed this on the V60 Pottery. The cup was awesome as I expected from Kurasu. Prominent strawberry aroma. Medium tea like body. Mellow acidity.

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!
*Please note that any order made after 3pm on Saturday will likely to be fulfilled on the next week’s roasting day. If the order contains 500g~ coffee, please kindly note that the coffee will be roasted and fulfilled on the next week's roasting round, and it may take longer to fulfil the order.
We understand the quality of the raw material determines most of the quality of the end product. That is why the selection of green beans, and knowing the source and traceability is so important to us.
We work with only reputable green bean importors - Wataru & Co., Ltd., TYPICA Holdings, Inc., along with directly sourcing from mirco lots from around the world. We make sure to understand as much as possible the farmers, their approach to harvest, processing, and logistics to reach Japan.
At Kurasu we roast with convection drum roaster, Loring S35 Kestrel, and semi-hot blast type roaster, Giesen W6A.
The roaster helps us roast a coffee with a soft, complex flavour and texture.
Coffee beans are naturally fragrant and have fresh and juicy acidity and sweetness of fruits. We make sure not to develop the roast too long and conscious to find the perfect balance to maximize the potential of each coffee.
We roast 1-2 times a week - at each session, right after roasting and on the day before the roasting, we check the quality of our roasted coffee.
We pay close attention to the batches we adjusted the roasting profile for and any batches that show readings with any difference to usual.
Roasting is an ever evolving process for us. There's always some small adjustments that can be made and we strive for ship out the best roasted coffee we can possibly produce.
