KOSAKADA Sugary BOX now on sale!

Thank you very much for your continued patronage and patronage of CROWD ROASTER .

We would like to announce the addition of a new roaster.
CROWD ROASTER is pleased to announce that roaster Yuya Kosakada ( Raw Sugar Roast ) will be joining us as a new member!

An up-and-coming roaster making a dashing appearance on the Tokyo coffee scene

Yuya Kosakada Manabu as a barista at the shop of world barista champion Paul Bassett, and has worked as a barista since the launch of GLITCH COFFEE & ROASTERS, a famous light roast shop in Jimbocho, Tokyo.

Wanting to develop coffee culture even further, Kosakada went from being a barista to being a roaster in order to spread the appeal of specialty coffee to more people.

Raw Sugar Roast was opened in 2022 together with Masashi Oda, who had experience both in Japan and overseas.

As the final anchor continuing from the production area

Kosakada 's roasting is not "just delicious coffee to drink" with a monotonous flavor and easy-to-understand taste, but rather creates "coffee to engage with" with a complex interweaving of flavors derived from the coffee's original variety and terroir.

Kosakada aims to create a flavor that will satisfy the drinker with just one sip, as a way to convey the appeal of coffee to as many people as possible.

We use a Giessen roaster, which has high heat retention and is capable of building flavors and expressing a rich mouthfeel. We carefully create detailed profiles down to the second, making sure to maximize the characteristics of the coffee.

We maintain the stance that roasting is an amplification process for flavor, inspired by the passion of the place of origin and the producers.

To celebrate participation, a tasting set is now on sale!

To commemorate the participation of roaster Yuya Kosakada ( Raw Sugar Roast ), we will start selling a limited number of "KOSAKADA Sugar Box" tasting sets (50g x 3 brands)!

This is the first ever tasting set from CROWD ROASTER , packed with Kosakada 's attention to detail.

This time, after careful consideration of the compatibility between Mr. Kosakada and the brands, we selected three unique brands.

The three brands that were selected are: "(CSLC) Colombia/El Paraiso Farm/ Castillo /Double Anaerobic Lychee", "(GJE) Ethiopia/Zeleram Washing Station/Ethiopia/Natural", and "( SL28 ) Kenya/Kiamabala/ SL28 /Washed".
We have prepared a tasting set that is different in variety, selection, and country of origin.

The other day, we at the management office cupped the roasted beans we received from Kosakada , and while we were able to fully enjoy the unique characteristics of each brand, we were also able to strongly sense the outstanding sweetness and clarity brought out by Kosakada 's roasting techniques.

This set has been named the "KOSAKADA Sugary BOX" to symbolize Kosakada 's commitment to sweetness and the roasting that allows you to fully enjoy the rich, gently blossoming flavor.
As the name suggests, this coffee is made using the finest coffee and the skills of our top roasters, allowing you to experience the outstanding sweetness that only top-class coffee can offer.

[CSLC] is characterized by an overwhelmingly refreshing lychee flavor and a rich sweetness reminiscent of strawberry jam.
[GJE] has a sweet and sour taste reminiscent of blackberry, wrapped in a gentle, clear sweetness.
[ SL28 ] has a rich flavor like blood orange, but also a refreshing acidity!
Each brand has its own unique character, making this a very enjoyable tasting set.

By purchasing this set, you will be able to experience Kosakada 's passion for roasting and coffee.
We are offering this special package in limited quantities, so please purchase it and enjoy the deliciously sweet coffee roasted by Kosakada .
