Founder, Kenneth Shoji, wrote a beautiful piece of writing about why he founded % Arabica.

My story begins in Tokyo, Japan.  Being raised by parents who were enthusiasts of a universal language called ‘’Esperanto”, we would travel abroad every summer to attend a “World Esperanto Congress” held in different countries.  My father was the owner of a manufacturing and trading company, and together with his frequent business trips, they would take me overseas whenever possible – ultimately helping to inspire my love of multiculturalism, design, and architecture.
Who am I?
What kind of life do I want to live?
I reflected on them over and over.  Eventually, I found my answers.
・I want to live a simple and down-to-earth life.
・I only need the basics to be satisfied: food, clothing and a house.
・As my parents did for me, I also want to travel with my children and provide a higher standard of life for them.
And my last answer was coffee.
I truly need an amazing cup of coffee every day. This is why I founded
% Arabica.
