Appearance of Sankosha

I found it in Kyotango in northern Kyoto! A luxurious time spent watching the flannel drippings at the home-roasted [Yamakosha]

July 01, 2022 open

As we drove toward the mountains while looking out at Kumihama Bay, we found a building with a red flag and a wooden deck as landmarks.

Mr. Nakamura of Sankosha

This is a coffee roastery started in 2022 by the owner, Mr. Nakamura, who visited coffee shops from Hokkaido to Okinawa during his university days in Kyoto City and made a U-turn to Kumihama Town.
While working at the city hall, he learned more about roasting, and now owns machines he loves, including roasters and lead mills manufactured by Inoue Seisakusho.

Inside Sankosha's Store

The long-awaited counter will be completed in the summer of 2023, with the idea that ``the best way to explain the appeal of beans in an easy-to-understand manner and get people's impressions is to actually try them.''
At first glance, it looks like a cafe, but the finished product is just a place where you can sample drinks. In a woody building surrounded by a forest, a rich time awaits where you can enjoy the depth of the coffee that interests you.

Sankosha Coffee

Regular 600 yen. You can choose from hot or iced demitasse with a strong flavor. Today's beans are Kilimanjaro from Tanzania. Coffee beans are sold from 900 yen for 200g
