Enjoy both the origins and story of your coffee at Tabinone
Coffee Roastery Tabinone is a roastery/café where you can enjoy coffee from a different perspective.
Tabinone puts great importance on having their customers know the story of the coffee they drink. Through both the things they sell and their coffee school, Tabinone endeavors to convey not only the proper method of tasting the coffee but the stories behind the origins and farmers too. The reason for Tabinone’s beliefs around this topic comes from a trip owner Kitabe took to a coffee plantation. This trip gave him the urge to share with the world high-quality specialty coffee that cherishes and appreciates the hard work of the farmers.
Another thing we should mention is that not only did Kitabe visit these farms himself, he also actively took the opportunity to seek out small scale farmers and purchase beans directly from them. In this equal partnership between Kitabe and the passionate farmers, they work together through discussions to create the desired coffee beans, which allows Kitabe the ability to both source good, high-quality beans, as well as sustainably support the lively hood of the farmers.
Furthermore, Tabinone is particular about how they serve their coffee as well. In their menu, Tabinone has set aside pages to introduce customers to the coffee farmers.
This is so that those who come to Tabinone can read and understand that “this is the kind of people farming the beans, and this is the kind of environment they are in.” By learning the origins of the beans, the drinker can then get an even deeper appreciation for the flavors of the coffee.
Tabinone finds its home in a multi-tenant building renovated from an old art school, where paint splatters on the floor call back to the building’s past.
“We want everyone to enjoy this odd little space as if they’ve come here on holiday; as if it’s something out of the ordinary for them” – Owner Kitabe.
It’s from this idea where the café gets its name “Tabinone” (the sound of traveling).
