Toshitaka Otsuka’s coffee shop, only open three days a week, is as low-key a café can get – a small, sparse single room decorated with second-hand furniture. By using a hand operated roaster that puts out only 500g of beans at a time, the owner creates roasts he describes as 'simple, which allow me to express my individuality'. The sweetly fragrant French roast and the deftly flavoured medium roast (¥550 per 100g) draw in Kyoto’s coffee nerds.
