Himawari Specialty Coffee is a haven for people who has a love of great tasting coffee. Your standard of coffee will never be the same once you try their specialty coffee. Himawari is a Japanese word for Sunflower. The Japanese owner explained that sunflower is a positive flower and he wants people to feel positivity when they visit this specialty coffee shop.
Himawari Specialty Coffee is the first and only Japanese inspired coffee shop in Cavite that specialty coffee. In fact, they sell specialty coffee from different parts of the world. This includes Yirga cheffe from Ethiopia, Mandheling from Indonesia, Fazenda and Ipanema from Brazil, El Jagar from Costa Rica. They also have beans from Mt. Apo in Mindanao.
Besides the great tasting coffee, they also have Japanese pastries. They sell different kinds of eclairs (choco, white choco, matcha), cream puffs, pudding, and fruit jelly.
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.
For as low as 350 pesos, he can teach you the basics of coffee making from roasting to coffee dripping. This also includes a cup of specialty coffee and your choice of pastry.
Here’s a quick preview of the workshop:
How to go there?
It is located at CVI Building, Barangay Puting Kahoy, Tagaytay-Sta Rosa Road, Silang, Cavite. It’s located bedside Minerva Tires.
If you are planning to use the public transportation, take a bus going to Tagaytay and get off at Tagaytay City Terminal. From there, ride a jeep going to Tagaytay Market. Then, ride a jeep going to Sta Rosa. Get off when you see the Minerva Tires.
Bring a private car when you go there. It is quite far if you are going to use the public roads.

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.
