Himawari Specialty Coffee will share the gift of specialty coffee for this blog! The coffee shop is in Silang, Cavite. If you are curious why the coffee shop is named “Himawari”, it means “Sunflower”. As the owner added, Sunflower always faces and rise where the sun is and sun means bright or positivity.
Now, during my visit to Himawari Specialty Coffee, the owner (The Master Roaster), Mr. Yutaka Shinozaki who studied and certified by Specialty Coffee Association taught us the difference and the gift of specialty coffee. How is it better than our usual iced coffee or even our daily brewed coffee.
He even showed us how he prepared his beans (hopefully to upload the video blog soon on my YouTube channel). He demonstrates how he commit and dedicate his time just by roasting the coffee beans. He carefully takes down notes of the temperature every couple of minute. Now, after the beans are roasted, he will proceed for the bean-grinding and place it in a dripping tool. This makes our coffee better.
Believe it or not, a specialty coffee does not need sugar nor creamer. All I remember is that we tried Yirgacheffe from Ethiopia. When he asked me how it tasted, one word popped in my mind, and that is “nutty”.
We also tried the two different espressos, one is from a commercially produced beans (which tasted sour and strong smell) and another one is from their shop (which is mild, not too sour and you can really enjoy one whole shot of it compare to the first one).
Coffee doesn’t really taste bitter and shouldn’t taste bitter. It’s the charcoal or the burnt beans that makes it bitter.– Mr. Yutaka Shinozaki (Himawari’s Master Roaster)
