Awesome drip coffee that will catch your heart

Akatsuki Coffee

/ アカツキコーヒー
Akatsuki Coffee
A shop that specializes in drip coffee located on the north of Kyoto area where people gather to visit unique shops. A fantastic coffee, espresso, cappuccino and more are served by a lovely young couple who are fairly gentle behavior. There is no back ground music inside. There is only the sound of drip machine that they seriously selected so that you could focus on just coffee! In addition to this, interior is extremely simple, but it creates homely atmosphere by dim light.

The reason why th...moree owner set up Akatsuki coffee is that they used to serve their friends drip coffee at home and discovered they were very pleased with his coffee. Some cake menus that are made by a wife who is a former pastry chef makes a very nice combination with its coffee. There are just few customers there in the morning so It is highly recommended to get there before lunch.

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
It was my first time to get Ichijoji area. When I got close to the shop little by little, I was really getting excited. It is because that the appearance of this shop perfectly is my type!
It is chic with a retro door and window, which are quite lovely, but blends well in surroundings.
Actually, I used to prefer tea to coffee. However, I have been addicted to coffee since then.
The owner of the shop never paid too much attention to me so that I could get relaxed.
If you have enough time, try...more browsing around the Ichijoji are. There are a lot of interesting shops and restaurants there! You would get a big fan of Kyoto more.
