Lilo Coffee Roasters in Osaka

Lilo Coffee Roasters friendly little shop is a short walk from Shinsaibashi station and the busy shopping arcade. I visited the shop on while on my way to Kansai airport and I was surprised by the attention to details and the friendliness of the staff.

Don’t let the weathered sign discourage you. The shop is located in a grungier part of Osaka which is breath of fresh air not far from the packed shopping arcade filled with shop ladies screaming at the top of their lungs.

I visited the shop at 11 AM and people were already waiting in line to get in. The shop is really small, but they have a bench outside a nice little folding table.

It’s a tight fit. I could not see the shadow of a coffee roaster. I think their roaster is located on the upper floor. The menu offers both drip single origin coffees and espresso drinks.

Tourist friendly menu

The menu next to the cash register details the daily offering of freshly roasted beans.

I really like the flavour profile graph which maps the taste profile of their beans from high acidity to full body.

Please notice a the business cards located right under of the coffee beans. I will come back to these cards later.

I opted for a cafe latte.

The cafe latte was good and I will try to go back to try the drip coffee when I have a chance.

The super friendly barista gave me her business card and the flavor profile card of the espresso beans. I really like the idea of these flavor profile card which is similar to what Starbucks does with the Reserve coffee they offer.

Lilo Coffee Roasters is a fun little shop with solid service. The little details often make a really big difference. If you have a favorite coffee roaster in Osaka, please let me know.
