Shokunin Coffee Collective
“The Japanese word shokunin is defined by both Japanese and Japanese-English dictionaries as ‘craftsman’ or ‘artisan,’ but such a literal description does not fully express the deeper meaning. The shokunin has a social obligation to work his/her best for the general welfare of the people. This obligation is both spiritual and material. No matter what it is, the shokunin’s responsibility is to fulfill the requirement.”– words by Tasio Odate. Shokunin is a coffee roastery in Rotterdam: they try to make everyone’s coffee experience more enjoyable by presenting a variety of delicious flavours and beautiful stories about their coffees. Their values of transparency and stability form the base of sustainable partnerships with their producers. Shokunin creates the opportunity for people across the production chain to learn and enjoy. They introduce open-minded farmers to new concepts, train ambitious professionals and create engaging coffee experiences for passionate consumers.
Expect new, exciting flavours. Expect engagement in the industry. But mostly: expect passion and fun in our favourite beverage.
