The perfect coffee alternative, Kanazawa Daichi's soybean coffee powder uses 100% organic roasted soybean from Ishikawa Prefecture-based Kanazawa Agriculture (agricultural division of the same company). It is zero caffeine drinking and popular among pregnancy women or people who avoid caffeine drinking.
Kinako is regular soybean powder commonly used in Japan for flavoring. This soybean coffee powder is different in that the stronger roasting gives the powder the flavor resembling coffee.
How to Make Soybean Coffee
Put 4 grams (3 tsp) into 200 ml of boiled water and mix well.
Drinking with soy milk or honey, sugar are also recommended.
Using the powder as a flavor when baking cookies or cakes is also a great way to enjoy the flavor of coffee and the healthiness of soybeans.
