Founder Story and Philosophy
My name is Monica and as you can probably tell, I love drinking coffee and Japanese culture! I am also part of the growing number of people who have become remote workers, so I often find myself in co-working spaces, hotels, and Airbnbs. While I was traveling across Japan and Korea I discovered the traditional single-serve pour over coffee that I could adapt easily to my lifestyle. I found out this was the perfect solution for a lazy person like me, since I was consuming those awful soluble and unhealthy instant coffees to avoid wasting time in going to the cafe or carrying coffee equipment with me for grinding and brewing. Since then I do not need anymore to wait queues in the cafe at peak times nor spend money in bad quality take-away coffees. I can enjoy the luxury of a great single origin anywhere anytime and kick off my bad coffee habits. So I can say this tiny change in my routine had a huge positive impact in my daily life! My ultimate goal is to promote the Slow Coffee culture made in Japan throughout Europe and USA. Every bag is crafted for a ‘slow moment’ of the day, and each drip bag name is based in a secret concept from Japan that I encourage you to research about and apply it inmediately to have a more productive, minimalist and happier life.
Our coffees are sourced ethically and directly with producers, and our top roaster is directly involved in different cooperation development projects. We are the only players in the market using biodegradable filters and eco-friendly packaging materials to fight against the environmental issues that capsules and pods are causing to our planet every single day. For quality and durability purposes we pack our coffees individually with nitrogen to preserve the freshness of the first roasting day up to 6 months. We also hold FDA, ISO SGS and HALAL certifications to ensure trustability and top quality to our future customers and partners.
