Letting Coffee Smoke since 1948

Ichiro Sekiguchi started his Kissaten (coffeehouse) in 1948. Ever since he has been roasting everyday – except Sundays. In May of 2014 he turned one-hundred years of age.

This is dedication. This is experience. Determination. Clarity. Longevity. True sharing.

Siphon, Lights, Coffee!

Yesterday my day ended much better than it had started, but it had started magnificent.

The ingenuity and high end design from Japan impressed me once more with this Siphon machine for infusing (and/or brewing) coffee. A coffee made with 16 – 18 gm of coffee and 250ml of water give a different experience in the world of drinking coffee.

A full report on this and a Cascara (Quishr) experience will be published here very soon.
