Kurasu Kyoto: The Simple Beauty of Japanese Coffee Culture

As the site has built a following, Otsuki began to get questions about a physical location. The idea made sense. A brick-and-mortar shop would give a face to his operation, allow people to touch the products he sells, and to deepen the connection to the coffees the shop features.
