ST. ALi // Specialty Coffee


Posted in ST ALi. // Latest news by mattjohn on November 7, 2008

Toshi Ishiwata

Toshi has been with St. Ali since it’s incarnation. Essentially the driving force behind the quality of coffee being produced, be it espresso’s or milk based, including latte art and cupping/roasting as well.

Aside from focusing on ‘all that is coffee’ from Probat to Synesso, he has recently re-ignited an enthusiasm for the syphon filter. Toshi at home has been using the Hario TCA-2 for many years now and has been undertaking syphon filter specials and demonstrations in the cafe recently. Currently $7 brew, it is on request and we’re sorry but only if he’s available. Between the comps, roasting and riding the bus, we can only do this during the week and only if he’s not roasting. Try your luck when you’re in. The temporary special price of $7 brew is for 2 people… including a demo from Toshi.

Originally from Japan, Toshi has been in Australian for 4 years and has competed in the Victorian Barista Championships, Latte Art Championships and Cupping Competitions.
