Mr. Yutaka Shinozaki, a Japanese coffee expert, decided to put up this café to educate Filipinos about specialty coffee. On the wall of the shop, you will see his certificate about coffee making. We can say that he’s a master roaster because he got a black certificate from the Specialty Coffee Association.

I learned a lot from the owner’s lecture. Coffee does not have to taste bitter or have an after taste. After knowing how to drip the specialty coffee, my standard of coffee has changed.
