Eiji Dobashi roaster ( ignis ), who is creating a new standard for coffee, will be joining us!

We are pleased to announce that roaster Eiji Dobashi ( ignis ) will be joining CROWD ROASTER as a new member.
Yanaka is a downtown area of ​​Tokyo where traditional streetscapes still retain their charm.
Did you know that one of the most cutting-edge coffee shops in Japan is located in the traditional Yanaka shopping district?
" ignis " is a top-of-the-line coffee specialty store that continues to attract coffee lovers.

Eiji Dobashi , the owner, barista and roaster of ignis , will be participating in CROWD ROASTER !

Dobashi says he has never participated in any other coffee-related services or apps until now.
I'm looking forward to seeing how he will perform at CROWD ROASTER .

Creating a new standard for coffee shops

ignis always carries dozens of nano-lot items, including auction lots that Dobashi ordered based on his own curiosity.

"I don't think about whether it will sell or not. We are an industry where new things are created every year, so for now I want to try new things. Because you're curious, right? If there are great beans, I want to try them no matter how much they cost. Isn't that the case for everyone?"

On full moon nights, when ignis is open late into the night, Dobashi 's fans gather at the store in hopes of finding rare lots that can only be found here.

Other than black coffee, the cafe only serves original drinks created from scratch by Dobashi . The chocolate-free fake cafe mocha "Noir" and the spherical coffee jelly served in a cocktail glass have been attracting attention from the media.
Dobashi aims to be a store that sets a new standard for coffee shops.
"Everyone says that coffee won't sell unless it's priced at 500 yen, but I believe that if it's good quality, it can sell for 10,000 yen. In fact, a few months after I started roasting, I won a bag of Gesha Village coffee from Ethiopia at auction and offered it for 10,000 yen. If this didn't sell, there would be no future for the coffee industry, so I wanted to destroy the business model of selling cheap coffee myself."

Unconstrained by conventional wisdom, Dobashi is constantly pursuing new forms of coffee.
