サルビア珈琲 or Salvia coffee is a shop located in Yasugi, Shimane Prefecture. Yasugi is a town between Matsue and Yonago. Yasugi has no major attractions, but I somehow end up going there quite often: good onsen, good soba and amazing coffee.
I was introduced to Café Rosso years ago by a friend who worked in Yasugi. The owner, Hiroyuki Kadowaki, is from Yasugi and grew up in the family coffee shop. Since I am a sucker for old Japanese coffee shops, I knew I would pay a visit one of these day.
Great beans from all over with a nice Fuji roaster in the entrance.
The coffee shop is very traditional.
I sat at the counter and ordered a cup of Mocha and Sumatra.
The lady was so nice with us. We talked about coffee and food. The pour over was a bit weak for my taste, but the roast was great.
I think that Salvia will be a regular stop when I visit Yasugi. It’s a nice and simple coffee.
The shop has a lot of coffee equipment for sale. I almost bought a Kono dripper.
If you happen to be in Yasugi, the Kadowaki will take care of all your coffee needs.
