Since the beginning of the collaboration in 2018, the craftsmen (brewers and roasters) of both companies have demonstrated their craftsmanship in selecting the base beer and coffee beans based on the concept of "creating a coffee beer that overturns the conventional image of coffee and its diversity". This year, we will be holding the "Tora - Tora Coffee Beer" event.
This year, in order to create a different taste from the previous year's Sumatora, the brewers and roasters started again from a deep understanding of each other's craftsmanship at each other's production sites and re-selected coffee beans and beer styles from scratch. This time, we roasted and supplied Ethiopian "Wolka Harohadi" City Roast beans. We soaked them in "Alto" style beer brewed at Coedo Brewery. The finished coffee beer is distinctly different in flavor from the traditional black beer-based coffee porters and coffee stouts.
As the name "Oolka" suggests, the result is a subtle, layered flavor with the gorgeous aroma and fruity flavor of coffee woven into the "Alt" base beer. It is a beer to be savored and enjoyed as the season gradually changes from fall to winter.

What is the beer style Alt?
We chose the traditional German style of "Alt" beer because we wanted to emphasize its drinkability as a beer and its harmony with coffee. Munich malt and caramel malt were added to the standard Pilsner malt to add sweetness and richness to the clean drinking experience and to enhance the affinity with coffee. Furthermore, the amount and timing of hops have been adjusted to reduce the aroma and bitterness derived from hops, so that the gorgeous aroma and fruitiness derived from coffee can be enjoyed.
The coffee beans used in this beer are Ethiopian "Wolka Harohadi" City Roast:
The name of this beer, "Worka," is also derived from this. We narrowed down the list of coffees to those that have a distinctive aroma that blends well with the beer. The "Wolka" area is located further southeast down from Yirgacheffe in the southwestern part of Ethiopia. The Wolka Washing Station (processing plant) is located in the Wolka area, and coffee cherries are brought in from several neighboring villages. We decided to select "Wolka Holohadi," a coffee from the village of Holohadi, which is located in an environment where particularly high quality coffee is grown. The richness and sweetness of the city roast with its gorgeous aroma and fruity aftertaste lasts forever. Horiguchi Coffee's green bean buyer, who actually visited the Halohadi community last year, also gave his stamp of approval for the excellent quality of this coffee.
