Kurasu Coffee, a relatively new coffee shop in Kyoto, Japan and Singapore, reached out to me not too long ago to see if I'd be interested in reviewing some of their coffee.
Since I don't often get the opportunity to try coffees from international roasters, I was excited to see what they had to offer, especially since the last international roaster to send me coffee ended up being an all-time favorite.
I received a 100g bag of the Rwanda Camajumba from Kurasu, which is what I'm reviewing here today.
I was only able to brew about 3 batches of coffee with the 100g, but every experience was a positive one.

Drip Coffee Experience
As I mentioned earlier, I was only able to get about 3 brews out of the 100g of coffee, and two of those brews came from my Bonavita Immersion Dripper.
The best way I can describe the coffee is that it's light bodied, clean, and sweet. It was very easy to drink because of these characteristics.
I picked up notes of milk chocolate, pomegranate, and vanilla.
This was an excellent coffee that I wish I had more time with.
100g is simply too small of an amount for me to feel like I really got the full picture of the coffee, which is why I've decided to not rate it.
I also can't say that it would be practical to order such a small amount of coffee, especially if you're outside of Japan (like most of the people reading this).
Still, you might want to check out Kurasu if you're ever in Kyoto or Singapore. You can learn more about Kurasu Coffee at the link below.
