Special Coffee Seminar with Kenji

Meet Kenji in Kuala Lumpur

Kenji Kojima, the face of Fuglen Tokyo and also founder/head roaster of Fuglen Coffee Roasters Tokyo, is coming down to Kuala Lumpur in May 2016!

Kenji flew to Norway by himself to learn about coffee and worked at Fuglen Oslo. He is very much exposed to Nordic coffee culture such as Tim Wendelboe, KAFFA & Supreme Coffee Roasters. In 2012, he started Fuglen Tokyo. In 2014, he set up Fuglen Coffee Roasters in Shibuya and continue researching on Nordic Roast.
Apart from running the roastery & cafe, he is also often getting involved in collaboration with others, most notably are Lexus & Takashi Murakami, designers who have a long term relationship with Louis Vuitton.
It is very rare opportunity to be able to learn direct from Kenji Kojima himself, even if you are in Japan.

We were very lucky to have him in person with us to conduct 2 seminars for the Malaysian coffee lovers. Grab this great opportunity to learn from the master himself!
