beauty in a cup of coffee

A solid timber counter + a bench + a barista + 6 stools + a lone stalk of flower make up this discreet gourmet coffee bar off Kawaramachi-dori in Kyoto. Run by Naoto-san, this hidden gem of a place serves cafe au lait made from the best beans, brewed with natural spring water and served in 80-year-old porcelain cups.
