Lin Coffee is located in a quiet area just off Kyoto’s Karasuma Dori. The store’s landmark is a sky-blue off-road bicycle that hangs at the storefront. The specialty coffee shop sports a wide range of unique coffee from around the world collected by its owner, also a bike enthusiast. The original coffee beans are served in a siphon brewer designed to draw out the flavors to the max. The result is coffee with a refined and pure taste and tantalizing aroma extracted by the hot and quick brewing process.
There is a range of coffee cups for you to choose from, from 1960s and 1970s European cups to Japanese antiques. You can also takeout your coffee, and purchase coffee beans. Lin coffee gets their beans roasted by the famous cafe Garo, a pioneer in specialty coffee in Kyoto since 1977. You can also purchase their coffees online.
