Kyoto’s Coffee Making

President: Hideaki Ogawa

Drinking coffee for the first time, I only remember the unpleasant bitter taste of it. However, getting to know coffee, I found the difference of the characteristics in each particular coffee. I became to appreciate the rich taste of pleasant bitterness, feel satisfaction on another level and get 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 contact. 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 to a positive direction. This is what we desire.
