    How the new House Blend Light is made

    For several months, we have been cupping with each barista to create a new Kurasu House Blend Light.
    Finally, we will be selling the Howe Blend Light that we decided on through this process.

    About the new House Blend Light

    While I was designing our new house blend, I took 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 make a blend? What’s the point about drinking it?

    The answer may not be around the words I said at the beginning, “stable” or “consistency”. Through the process of making this new blend, I reached an opposite conclusion- what makes a blend interesting and irreplaceable is its subtle unpredictability and fluctuation. In one batch of blend there is a set ratio. However, naturally, that is not the case in each brew and each cup.

    Coupled with the delicate and almost unpredictable nature of espresso, what kind of balance you get in a shot of blend is almost impossible to create twice. Any delicious single origin can bore you after a while if you drink it every single day- I 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.

    Our Roasting Schedule

    We roast all of our coffee in Kyoto, at our Fushimi Inari roastery, twice a week on Thursday and Sunday.

    We then pack and ship the freshly roasted beans out as early as on Monday, Wednesday and Friday (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!

    *Any order made after 12pm on Wednesday and Saturday will likely to be fulfilled on the next week’s roasting day.

    Green Beans

    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 - Cafe Imports, Nordic Approach, Umi no muko, 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.

    Our Roast

    At Kurasu we roast with a 6 kg semi-hot blast type roaster made by a Dutch manufacturer, Giesen.

    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.

    Quality Control

    We roast 2-3 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.
