Fusion of flavors from 2 countries

Bubble tea came from Taiwan, and Japanese coffee is famous too around the world. With the fusion of cold coffee from Japan and bubble milk tea inspiration from Taiwan, many coffee lovers and sweet tooth lovers can enjoy this delicious coffee bubble tea. There are many delightful coffee beans from all around the world, but we will introduce here a premium coffee, the Sumiyaki Coffee, and how it can make your line of iced drinks become a line of indulgence.

What is Sumiyaki Coffee?

Sumiyaki means charcoal roasting. Sumiyaki Coffee has a unique super-rich aroma and flavor because of quality roasting, where Binchotan charcoal is being used to roast coffee beans from the inside out. Using Binchotan charcoal slows down the depreciation time of the coffee, making preserving it long-lasting, compared to using other roasting methods. It produces plump-like coffee beans that are well-cooked. Not undercooked nor overcooked.

Why are they using Binchotan?

Binchotan absorbs moisture and unwanted chlorine, and other impurities from water. It does not produce smoke but still produces a high amount of heat.

How Binchotan charcoal Grilling Method works?

There are generally two types of coffee roasting: Hot air roasting and Direct fire roasting.

Hot air roasting is like using a dryer or chamber filled with hot air to roast the beans making these become light-roasted coffee beans.

Direct Fire Roasting is mixing and cooking to roast beans, just like roasting beans on a pan over a gas stove or firewood. Coffee producers use large containers to roast beans over the gas fire.

With the Binchotan grilling method, the coffee beans are on the coffee roaster over the burning Binchotan charcoal. The charcoal produces natural infrared and electromagnetic rays to cook the inside core of the beans to the surface. It is similar to a microwave oven but in a natural way of heating things. The technique is carefully implemented to give the coffee drinkers safe and perfectly cooked coffee beans. The result will be savory, smoky, or sweet taste depending on the target drinkers’ preference. The sure thing is it removes the bitterness and the acidity of the coffee beans.

 Because of this, coffee beans will not burn and turn bitter.

Let’s beat the hotness with this cool drink!

Sumiyaki Coffee Bubble Tea Recipe in 3 different ways

Sumiyaki Coffee Cold Brew Method (that tastes great!)

 

When aiming for more profits on a target niche, the cold brew releases more coffee taste. The grinds’ consistency is like peppercorns.

We will use brewed coffee instead of iced coffee because this method extracts more coffee flavor, and at the same time, lessens the acidity and the bitterness. However, with Sumiyaki coffee, there’s already less acid and bitterness, it is just the cold brew method is a better way to make coffee tastes great when cold.

The cold brew coffee on a mason jar can be used to make up to 5 or more coffee bubble tea servings.

Ingredients:

80 grams of Sumiyaki coffee coarse grind

Water

Boba / black tapioca pearls

Ice cubes or shaved ice

2-3 tablespoons of brown sugar, honey, or condensed milk

½ cup milk

  2. Meanwhile, cold brew your Sumiyaki coffee grounds by adding these on half of a mason jar. Add water until full and stir.
  3. Leave the jar closed at room temperature for 20-24 hours. In case there’s no cover, you can use a saucer or a cheesecloth.
  4. Drip the cold-brewed coffee using an ice drip coffee maker or a Teddy Cold Brew System. If you don’t have one, strain using a strainer and cheesecloth, paper, or coffee filter when using a coffee pot to catch the coffee drippings. If you use a chemex or carafe, the filter and the coffee funnel are enough to filter the cold brew.
  5. After filtering the Sumiyaki coffee, place it inside the fridge. It can last for up to a week and help create 5 or more coffee bubble tea servings.
  6. Back to making a single serving of bubble tea, after cooking the pearls, add some brown sugar, honey, or condensed milk while it is still hot. Mix.

  10. Finally, add fresh milk. If using powdered milk, mix it with ¼ cup of water before pouring it on the glass.
  11. Mix using a spoon or a fat straw.
