Father's Day is coming up soon in just over two weeks. If you haven't bought your gift yet, why not get him something different this year with a unique item made in Japan?

Fortunately for you, Grape Shop has many items which could make your dad happy. And seeing how you're interested in Japan (since you're presumably a grape Japan reader), chances are your dad may have a passing interest in things Japanese as well! Even if he doesn't, this year may be the year when you change his mind :)

We've put together a collection of excellent Father's Day gift ideas all available now at Grape Shop for international shipping:

Level up your coffee game with paperless filter made with Aritayaki ceramic ware techniques

Is your dad a coffee man? No problem. We have that covered too. The Ceramic Coffee Filter was born from the traditional Japanese techniques of Aritayaki ceramic ware, which has a history of 400 years. It removes up to 70% of the extraneous flavor impurities by filtering coffee through micron-sized holes.

Filtering through ceramic achieves an excellent extraction, removing impurities as well as the tell-tale saltiness which sometimes characterizes under-extracted coffee, all of which results in a mellow, satisfying coffee taste.
