REVIEW: Sakai Japanese coffee


I don’t consider myself a coffee connoisseur by any stretch of the imagination. That being said, if it’s Japanese, I have to try it.

Coffee was definitely an acquired taste for me, as it was for many I’m sure. Slowly but surely, it became a daily routine for me.

Every morning I brew up a pot at home, or I visit the local Tim Hortons to get my morning started right.

After a recent visit to a local Japanese knife shop, I procured some samples of “Sakai coffee” with the purchase of some very exquisite knives on my brother’s behalf.

As a self-proclaimed Japanese food connoisseur, I stand by virtually any Japanese dish that I’ve tried. Whether it be ramen, sushi, onigiri, gyoza, or now Sakai coffee.

Now more than ever, I’m a firm believer that Japan can manage to make anything better. Coffee included.
