Organic beans roasted by hand every morning, the favorite of Kyotoites
Tamaya Coffee opened its door in 1950, a few years after the war, as a coffee bean wholesaler in Kyoto. After a while, they started to consider the safety and quality of the beans as well as the taste and aroma so they began to use organic beans which were still very rare in those days. The owner is directly engaged in the entire process, from choosing the beans to roasting, from blending to brewing. His day starts with checking the quality of the beans of the day - he examines the beans like a craftsman considers his work. Then, he starts to roast the beans by hand. Beans change their aroma and taste slightly depending on the timing of the harvest; hence, a certain experience is required for adjusting the intensity of the fire and the length of roasting time to achieve the best result. His hand-roasted beans are loved by many cafés.
