  • Good coffee in Barcelona

    Good coffee in Barcelona is hard to find. There are hundreds of coffee shops serving espresso based drinks, but the quality is generally low. For a decent cup, about what you get pretty much at any corner in Australia visit Cafes El Magnifico in Carrer Argenteria, near the Santa Maria del Mar church. This is a speciality roaster. They do small batches of single origin and blends, and the Italian or Argentinian baristas know when the roast was made. You will drink your coffee standing, and they don't open until 10am, but that's the best I tried by far.

    It is a pity that many cafes in Barcelona are just giving up and serving Nespresso. Starbucks, also, can be found everywhere.

    I'll be checking out Vienna in a couple of weeks. Nothing decent to report in Ljubljana.
