The space resembles a futuristic combination of factory and house of of worship with glass and stainless steel syphons and one communal table without chairs in the serving area, and a spot-lit roasting room separated by a velvet rope. The sometimes snobbish staff is typically tight-lipped about the daily blend, which changes daily and can be startlingly sweet or even alcoholic tasting,...

This San Francisco import promises that no coffee bean will be served more than 48 hours after it was roasted. The space resembles a futuristic combination of factory and house of of worship with glass and stainless steel syphons and one communal table without chairs in the serving area, and a spot-lit roasting room separated by a velvet rope. The sometimes snobbish staff is typically tight-lipped about the daily blend, which changes daily and can be startlingly sweet or even alcoholic tasting, though never bitter or charred. But the sweetened iced coffee drink called the Kyoto is a memorable and reliably accessible potable treat.
