In this page, we’ll introduce the two machines
we use to serve you quality coffee.
1. Tornado King
For a great cup of coffee, it’s a must to have freshly roasted coffee beans. Coffee beans start the process of oxidization from the moment they are roasted, and after 48 to 72 hours, their taste peaks, and after that slowly goes bad. So the Golden Rule to enjoy tasty coffee at home is to buy a small quantity of freshly roasted beans, store them under room temperature
in the shade, and use them within one week.
We at % Arabica know how difficult it is to buy fresh roasted coffee beans at local stores.
Our roasting machine, ‘’Tornado King’’, will solve this problem. This modern Japanese roasting machine can roast from 100g with 500 different roasting patterns, and it only takes 5 minutes to roast one batch.
At % Arabica, we roast each customer’s beans differently according to their tastes, and we roast each batch after taking an order. So our customers can select the beans and roast level they like, and always bring home the freshest coffee beans possible. Please come to % Arabica, order around one weeks worth of coffee, so you can always have the best coffee available at home or office.
2. Slayer Espresso
Once freshly roasted coffee beans from our Tornado King hit their tasting peak after 48 to 72 hours, we use the beans to serve coffee at our shop.
The espresso machine we use is Slayer Espresso from Seattle.
Most traditional espresso machines from Italy only pulls espresso like an automatic digital camera. That is to say, the machine pulls espressowith 9 bars of pressure when the barista pushes a button. We wanted something more.
We selected this unique machine because we put so much effort farming our coffee in Hawaii, trading green beans from around the world, and custom roasting beans with our Tornado King. We wanted the best Espresso possible.
Unlike the traditional espresso machine, Slayer works like an analog film camera. Baristas can change water temperature, water flow at pre-brew stage, and brewing time, to enable baristas to work like true artists and pull the best taste from any coffee bean.
Please come and enjoy our coffee at % Arabica.
We farm, we trade, we roast, and we use Slayer to serve you the best cup of coffee possible in order to make you smile.
3. Show Room
% Arabica not only uses the Tornado King and Slayer at our shops, but also serves as the exporting agent for Tornado King to the world, and is the sole distributor of Slayer Espresso to Japan and Hong Kong.
At % Arabica Kyoto, % Arabica Hong Kong, and % Arabica Tokyo’s showroom, feel free to try out the machines if you are interested in purchasing them.
