Rocket Coffeebar S.49 was a great little discovery recommended by my good friend and creator of eggsontoast.today – Sam. The cafe has a variety of gourmet dishes and coffee on their menu including some specialty coffee options.

Its location is tucked away within the soi’s of Thonglor, it would be recommended that you take a taxi or motorbike taxi to get there.

% Arabica | Kyoto Japan

Kyoto Japan

 

After first visiting % Arabica in Hong Kong, I was stoked with the opportunity to check them out in Kyoto..

Having 2 Slayer espresso machines and a Tornado roaster they pump out some pretty amazing coffee! Super impressed with what these Arabica do.

Transcription:

Hello,

Tim is coming to you again with another episode of Coffee Geek TV.

Listen up. I’m here at the % Arabica in Kyoto, Japan. This cafe rocks.

They have the Slayer machine as they’re the official distributors for Slayer machines in Japan. For all good reasons, they’re the Rolls Royce of espresso machines.

I was about to have a drip coffee, but they told me to have an espresso instead. I’m glad for this because there’s a Slayer machine here.

Anyway, I had a Honduras-Guatemala type beam variety. Like I tell you, it was unbelievable. The extraction they produced was on the mark. If you check out Instagram, you’ll see a video I took of the process.

I can’t rave enough about how good the espresso was. There are only a couple of times I’ve had a good espresso in my life. One was from the Spirit machine made in Holland. It was in a place in Chiang Mai. They had bean varieties from Melbourne. The best coffee I tried was in Hong Kong, in August last year. That cafe has branches around the world

The guy who owns this cafe is a successful businessman., so he has invested a lot of money in coffee. He’s got investments here in Kyoto, Hong Kong and United Arab Emirates. He also has a Kona farm in Hawaii. He distributes Slayers and has cafes around the world.

The baristas here are fantastic at what they do. And that’s another extraordinary thing. They’ve got a tornado roasting machine that can roast beans within 15 or 20 minutes. iT prepares up to 100 grams of beans. They computerize everything and are accurate every time.

If you’re a purist, you might like their style. But I am on the fringe and prefer things hand done. It highlights craftsmanship and gives the taste of proper, hand-roasted coffee. But hey, I like the best of both worlds.

Thanks for tuning in again to Coffee Geek TV. If you want to reach out to me, subscribe below or check out the information below this video.

Vermillion Cafe | Kyoto Japan

Vermillion Cafe

Kyoto Japan

 

Really loved the owner and barista of Vermillion cafe.. Positioned perfectly for the foot traffic from Fushimi Inari and Araki Shrine’s. Great place to enjoy the scenery from the shrine hike..

Transcription:

Hey there, it’s Tim again with another episode of Coffee Geek TV. I’m here at a new cafe called Vermillion in the Fushimi Inari shrine in Japan. If you’re doing a bit of sightseeing and want to grab something, this is a brilliant espresso bar.

They use the beans from the Weekender’s Cafe, which you may know from my last video. You know that you’re going to get super quality beans and reasonably priced coffee. If you’re in the area, come and check it out. Tim again, from Coffee Geek TV. Peace out.

Weekenders Coffee Roastery | Kyoto Japan

Weekenders Coffee Roastery

Kyoto Japan

Weekenders Coffee was a pleasant discovery about a 15 minute walk from the hostel I was staying in. The cafe and roaster was located upstairs set in a very simple yet funky layout.

I loved their ‘Cherry Blueberry’ flavored Ethiopian Single Origin Yirgacheffe coffee so much I returned the next day for more coffee and buy some beans too. The owners are super friendly and helpful also… Check them out.

Hello, it’s Tim coming to you again with another episode of Coffee Geek TV.

Here I am in Kyoto Japan. I just stepped out, just trying to find any coffee. I heard about a coffee shop down the road, but it is not open because it’s Sunday here. I read a review about it. Someone complained that they could not use WIFI, but I have no qualms with that. It depends on what you want. I think that if you are looking for the experience, it’s best that you put the computer away. If you are looking to do work, go to a cafe like Starbucks where you can get it done.

I am a place called Weekenders after reading a review. Reviewers touted it as the best place to hang out. It’s more of an experience bar. You can see a stand-up bar and a counter with a barista. Behind me is a counter with a Provac. There is someone over here who has got his laptop out, following one of these roasting profiles.

They have an excellent selection of roasts. The beans come from around the world. They include Ethiopia, Guatemala, Kenya and other blends. They grind the beans and put them in little jars, which is a fantastic idea. I swayed towards the Ethiopian blend because it has these beautiful, fruity aromas. I taste blueberries and strawberries. I’m partial towards sweet coffee, and I like full-bodied stuff. There is a bit of caramelization there too. This blend is beautiful. Tim, coming to you again with another episode of Coffee Geek TV.

Coutume Cafe | Osaka Japan

Coutume

Osaka Japan

Apparently Coutume Cafe was permanently closed at this location the date of this post.

My first experience of Steampunk coffee… I wasn’t overwhelmed by the experience to be honest… Although watching the brewing technique in action intriguing, I actually found it the flavor quite watery and under extracted.. I hope one day I can get better experience of Steampunk coffee.

Transcription:

Hi,

I’m Tim coming to you again from Coffee Geek TV. I’ve come to a place called Coutume Coffee, a French cafe. They do innovative things here, and prepare coffee in a way I have never seen before. It’s called Steampunk.

Let me take you over here and show you how the machine looks. It’s a French press with a siphon built in together. The water rises to this level, and this is where the device compresses the beans. The coffee comes down through the same chamber.

This style of brewing coffee is slightly different. It is not my favorite, but you might want to give it a try. This place is a little difficult to find. If you are in Osaka, Japan, you have to go underground.

I can’t rate it when compared to the other coffees, but you win some and lose some. Tim, coming to again from Coffee Geek TV.

Takamura Wine and Coffee Roasters | Osaka Japan

Takamura Wine and Coffee Roasters

Osaka Japan

This place brought both my beverage passions together – Coffee and Wine.. I place reminded my of the local alcohol shop in Australia called Dan Murphy’s but with a twist.. a built in coffee roaster..

Although a little walk from the Metro, it was worth the visit to experience both of my sensory backgrounds under the one roof.

The upstairs mezzanine of Takamura provided a great ambience. They also have mini Aeropress competitions too.

Hi Coffee Geeks,

I’m Tim coming to you again with another episode of Coffee Geek TV. I’ve arrived in Osaka, Japan. After I dropped my bags at the guest house, I came to this place I learned of called Takamura Wine and Coffee Roasters.

I’m upstairs at the moment in this fantastic cafe. What I love is that it has combined both my worlds. One is my background in wine and the other is my new love for coffee. Let me give you a quick overview of my wine background. I used to work in the wine industry and lived near the wine regions of Australia and used to drink a lot of it. Since moving to Thailand, I’ve found it expensive. and don’t drink as much wine as I used to. The range is limited and the price,not satisfactory as well. That overlapped into coffee and made me to continue to train my palate.

This place is fantastic. Let me give you a quick tour. I’m going to walk down the stairs. Takamura Coffee is rocking. It has got the best range of wines you can imagine. It’s huge and reminds of Dan Murphy’s in Australia. The best feature of this place is the drip bar, where the cafe starts from. They have got a humdinger of a roaster back here. If I could own a cafe it would be something like this because it brings both my worlds together. Come and try this place. Once again, it is Takamura Wine and Coffee Roasters.
