Glass hopper Blend Coffee ( using Colombian Beans )
Colombian beans are characterized by "rich sweetness" and "strong bitterness".
They blended the Colombian beans and grasshoppers.
Grasshoppers are also familiar as insect foods.
In addition, among insects, grasshoppers are especially easy to understand the characteristics of "crustaceans".
This coffee is a well-balanced blend of grasshoppers grown on a vast continent and the strong bitterness of Colombian beans.
Grasshoppers turn red like shrimp when boiled. The redness of the package is inspired by boiled grasshoppers.
Grasshopper and cricket coffee is a basic insect blend coffee that is easy for beginners to eat insects.

- If you are allergic to crustaceans such as shrimp and crab, please refrain from eating.
This is because the outer shell of arthropods contains chitin.
