However, as I got used to coffee, I found the characteristics of the real quality of particular coffees. I was able to appreciate the rich taste of good bitter flavor, deriving satisfaction on another level and getting to know the true depth of coffee. Quality coffee has as much an attraction as Kyoto where we cannot enjoy and understand it all “Ichigen ni” - at first glance. We are Coffee Artisans from Kyoto, dedicated to the pursuit of coffee perfection. We have developed the distinct character of OGAWA COFFEE through the journey from bean to cup: cultivating the finest beans in the healthiest soil, roasting to maximize their potential, and serving the best possible coffee with the utmost customer care. What we seek is not only good-tasting coffee. It is discovering and providing the coffee’s value that leads humans, nature and the whole environment in a positive direction. This is our dream.
