A profound coffee world. Tastes deep, too.

Do you drink coffee? Do you like or love coffee? Whether you are a regular coffee drinker or not, the more you learn about coffee, the more you will be impressed by its depth and the more you will want to drink it. Let’s take a look into that world now.


1.History of Coffee

The first written record of coffee is believed to be by an Arabic physician around 900. At that time, they thought of coffee as a medicine. After that, coffee was discovered in many places, but have you ever heard of a man who discovered that the berries of a bush eaten by a goat caused him to become agitated, and when he boiled the berries and drank them, he felt refreshed, and when he gave them to his disciples, they were able to work hard without dozing off. That person is the Ethiopian goat herder “Kaldi”. I’m sure you’ve heard of him. The answer is probably yes.

2.Try by yourself! Drip Coffee at your home!

Wouldn’t you like to start your morning in style? Making your own coffee tastes great and is a great way to start the day. You may be think that you don’t know how to do it, and it is too hard, but it is not that difficult and the things you need to prepare are simple. Here are some tips on how to make a delicious coffee.





・Mug (glass is recommended because you can see the amount of water being brewed)

・Kettle (a narrow mouth for hot water is good)

・Coffee powder (beans are also available, but you’ll need a mill to grind them, so let’s prepare the powdered kind)

First, set the dripper on top of the cup and the coffee filter on it. Put the coffee powder into the filter. Each cup should contain 10 to 12 grams of powder.

The water temperature should be between 85 and 90 degrees Celsius. If the temperature is higher than this, the bitterness will come to the fore.

Now it’s time to drip. The first step is to pour hot water over the entire cup and let it steep. After waiting for a few tens of seconds, pour the water into the center of the coffee powder like drawing a small circle. After pouring one cup, well done. The key here is not to extract the coffee all the way to the end. Extracting the coffee all the way to the end will increase the bitterness, so leave a little and lift the dripper. Then you can enjoy your very own delicious coffee.


3.Coffee shop I recommend

It is essential to know the taste of professional coffee in order to make your own coffee taste good more. One of the coffee shops I recommend and like is “Leaves Coffee Roasters” in Kuramae, Tokyo, where the black coffee is great taste, of course. In addition the milk brew coffee is the best. The milk brew coffee made from the beans which is sold by Leaves Coffee Roasters is exceptional. It is easy for anyone to drink because it is milk-based while retaining the fresh and fruity taste of coffee. Surprisingly, You can enjoy such a gem at home.

4.Brew not by water, by milk !? Milk-brewed coffee.

You may have heard of water-brewed coffee, but you may not be familiar with milk-brewed coffee. The milk-brewed coffee I mentioned above can also be enjoyed at home, and I would like to introduce my own recipe.





・Mug (glass is recommended because you can see the amount of water being brewed)


・Coffee powder (beans are also available, but you’ll need a mill to grind them, so let’s prepare the powdered kind)


First, add the coffee powder directly into the milk, about 8 to 10 grams per 150ml. Let it sit for about 9 hours. After that, give the milk a turn to blend the coffee powder, and then set the dripper and filter on top of the cup. Pour the milk directly on top of the dripper and filter, and you are done. I recommend to drink it with ice.

I recommend “Colombian El Paraiso Lime Lot”, available at “Leaves Coffee Roasters”, although it goes well with beans that are not too quirky. It has a clean and refreshing taste that makes you want to drink it every day. It is priced at 2,200 yen per 100 grams. You should try.

How about it? There is no end to the world of coffee. Please step into this world and try to live a stylish and enjoyable coffee life.

I may see you at a coffee shop somewhere. Until then.
