Please note that this book is written in Japanese only.
Toshi Ishiwata is Market Lane’s head roaster, quality control manager and dedicated sourcer of Brazilian coffee. He has worked in coffee since 2005 and has been an invaluable member of the Market Lane team since 2010. Toshi has an incredible palate for tasting coffees; he roasts all our filter coffees, he hosts sample roasting classes (in both English and Japanese) and he has the final say on all roast profiles.
Which is all to say that Toshi knows a lot about coffee! And he has now compiled a lot of his knowledge into this small and info-rich Japanese-language book, which is comprised of 12 magazine articles published over 12 months in Dengon Net magazine, a popular Melbourne culture guide for the Japanese community. With updated information and a personal introduction, Toshi writes about his work at Market Lane, discusses coffee culture in Melbourne and details his thoughts and philosophies on roasting, cupping, brewing, processing, sourcing and travelling for coffee.
Designed by Joshua Loughlan with photographs by Kazuki Inamine, this book is perfect for all Japanese readers that are curious about coffee.
