Hood by Vargas is a third wave coffee shop located quite close to Umeda station in Osaka. The walk from Umeda station takes a few minutes but has the added benefit of getting you away from one of the cities’ busiest stations and giving you a quick look into Osaka life.
I’m not sure if it’s ironic or not, the owner of Hood by Vargas is a fan of Brooklyn Roasting Company which is largely taking the city’s coffee scene by storm. Perrying if you would.
It is quite likely that the reason for his honesty is that he’s skilled enough to hold his own against such a large brand. Hood by Vargas is, simply put, a great place to get hand drip coffee and as an added bonus is quite easy to reach if you’re just passing through the city.
