We're happy to announce that Ayaka is now Kurasu's director, effective August.
Ayaka was one of our first baristas to join us when we opened Kurasu Kyoto Stand back in August 2016. As she progressed from cafe manager to general manager and now on our board of directors, she has been instrumental in making Kurasu what it is today.
Her infectious smile and passion for creating an unforgettable experience for every customer that walks through Kurasu is a standard we strive to achieve throughout our global operations. Her empathy and dedication to each member of our team have enabled our growth to build a diverse working environment.
Kurasu's vision as a company structure has always been to create opportunities for anyone passionate about coffee and an environment where coffee can become a lifetime career. Ayaka embodies this vision, from starting as a barista with three teammates to now leading a global operation of almost 40 people. How fitting we can make this announcement on our 6th anniversary of when Ayaka joined Kurasu and opened Kyoto Stand with us!
I will continue to serve as Kurasu's director, continuing to do my part and supporting Ayaka and our team to help build Kurasu for a sustainable future and "to spread coffee culture, from Kyoto to the globe."
We are thankful for all the support to be where we are today.
Founder and Director, Kurasu
I usually choose my mugs based on their artwork, this is the first plain mug I have ever bought. The glaze is a very nice blue but the reason this mug gets five stars is because of how it feels in my hand. The handle is easy to hold and the weight is distributed evenly. It has become one of my favorites.
Each coffee I've tried so far has been delicious and different. Having the ability to try four bags makes this subscription worth it to me. The free shipping is a nice touch!
The subscription plan offers me the option to have four different beans a month which is perfect for me. The profiles on brands and beans, as well as the detailed brewing plans, let me not only taste the flavors, but also meet the good and friendly coffee brands.
I primarily use this coffee for my espresso. It’s been great
Good variety and great price
