As an ancestral city for the people of Japan, Kyoto, with its 1200-year history, has forever been a city of innovation, history, and culture. Each one layered upon the other, actualizing a world-class culture, where tradition and entrepreneurial spirit breathe. It was here that Ogawa Coffee first began to make coffee in 1952 (the 26th year of the Showa Era). Since then, we have honed our craft according to the aesthetic sense and the artistic sensibilities of Kyoto, and it is with the pride of being “Coffee Artisans of Kyoto,” that we constantly pursue a quality of flavor that will be known throughout the world.
We believe that coffee always has the universal power to heal people's hearts and enrich the world. That is why we want to not only, improve the taste of Ogawa Coffee, but also to further broaden its purpose for the future of society.
We want coffee to be an irreplaceable part of everyday life. A task only achievable through protecting the global environment and protecting the lives of the producers, the foundation of our coffee makers. Without forgetting our passion as "Coffee Artisans of Kyoto", we will continue to find value in each and every coffee. For we believe that a cup will surely be tomorrow's hope. It is our wish that we, Ogawa Coffee, can continue to be a part of the hearts and lives of as many people as possible.
