Lima Coffee

Directions

The best way would be to get off at Motomachi Station and follow the Shoutengai till you hit your destination.

Location type

A staple in the Kobe Coffee community. Located between both JR Kobe and JR Motomachi, and just south of the Shoutengai. It’s a little bit out of the way, but definitely worth the walk. True to the style of new age coffee shops in Japan, the focus is the coffee not the atmosphere. As such the seating is limited to a couple benches in front of the store. The beans offered are all roasted in house. Lima offers plenty of both single origins as well as various blends. They are most famous for their Syphon Coffee as it’s something of a rarity outside of japan. Definitely worth a check out if you want to check out Kobe’s coffee scene. The store is open from 9:00 to 6:00 every day except on Wednesdays.

A little blurb taken from their website:

単一農園、単一品種。世界各国の厳選した珈琲豆の販売と、サイフォンで抽出した焙煎したての香り高い一杯が味わえる神戸のコーヒースタンド。
