It’s Tim again coming to you from Coffee Geek TV. Welcome to another episode. I’ve got something special for you today. I’m at this homey little coffee shop in the middle of rural Ise town of the Mie prefecture called Nakamura Coffee. It based in the family name.
I don’t know the name of the barista yet, but he seems to know his stuff. He has poured specialty coffee all over the world. You can see him there at the moment sifting through his coffee. This fellow hand-selects all the beans and eliminates all the defects. A friend of mine once told me that one bad bean could ruin your cup of coffee. That stuck with me. I have a profound respect for people who make hand selections, and what they do. Rest assured that you will get a good cup of coffee if you come here.
This place is hard to find, so if you are in this area, do give it a try. I will pin the address in this post. Japan is full of specialty coffee shops, and they do a fantastic job of brewing coffee.
I will give you a quick rundown of what I am drinking today. This cup has a Cuban Coffee. I don’t know the bean variety. The coffee has a beautiful macadamia cream flavor; it is my first time trying something like this.
The African Coffees that I tried impressed me, and I shared this with the barista. The man has got Costa Rican Coffees and something full-bodied, like the one from Kilimanjaro. I decided to go for the 40% Brazilian and 60% Costa Rican. It’s good. I don’t get this one, which I have almost finished. It was full-bodied but didn’t have all the characteristics. I tasted a burnt sugar flavor and detected a hint of bitterness, but in all, it is a good full-bodied coffee.
