Speciality coffee is emerging "a poc a poc" (Catalan expression meaning little by little), in the Mediterranean city of Barcelona. With new coffee shops popping up every few weeks, and events such as the Independent Barcelona Coffee Festival, Barcelona specialty coffee’s profile is coming alive! While Barcelona has plenty of options to choose from, we have done some coffee homework and hand-picked the most remarkable places to go to for a creamy hot cup of café!
Located amidst the charming Gothic backstreets and boutiques of the Born neighborhood, Cafés El Magnifico is a third-generation family business that has thrived in the Spanish coffee industry through the Spanish Civil War, the dictatorship, national financial crises, and everything in between. You can almost feel that historic charm with every sip of coffee!
Hiding in the neighborhood of Poble Nou, near Bogatell beach and Torre Agbar is this amazing Plant Concept Store brewing coffee that tastes absolutely dreamy. Try and pair that cup of coffee with an avocado-cheese sandwiches or freshly baked cake- we promise that you will not regret it!
Infused with its Scandinavian design are pastel shades with lots of white space and a big map showing Denmark. Café Cometa is located in the district of Sant Antoni, becoming more and more popular among locals. It’s a great area close to downtown to get your caffeine fix with a delicious slice of cake!
Located in the bohemian neighborhood of Gracia, the Bicioci Bike Café invites you to discover the less-touristy part of Gracia right after you had your daily cup of creamy coffee. Combining a hipster design with bicycles, café, and pizza with creative pallets design and old window frames, this cafe has to be on your list if you love coffee as much as we do!
A list of Barcelona's specialty coffee is not complete without Nømad Coffee. In just two years, the Nømad brand has put forth an impressive reputation in the coffee industry for its focus on quality. Nømad coffee shipped and served in cafes and restaurants all across the city, as well as throughout Spain and Europe.
Make sure to stop by these locations for your daily dose of caffeine when in Barcelona!
