When it comes to holidays, I’m not much of a box-ticker. For me, they’re more about spending a few lazy hours in a beautiful space and meeting the people that wander in. Sentido is one of these spaces.
Opened by Itsumi Doi in 2012, Sentido is a relative newcomer to the Kyoto coffee scene. Itsumi learnt to make coffee in Melbourne and knows her way around a machine. Sentido rocks a Synesso Cyncra and a pair of Mazzers. Coffee is supplied by CafeTime, a local roaster from Kyoto. Their house blend is well balanced and they offer a rotating single origin. When I was in town they had a banging Rwandan on board.
Sentido, go there and be lazy.
