Demonstrating just how firmly Barcelona’s specialty coffee scene has taken root, you can now enjoy proper coffee pretty much anywhere. Point in case: Morrow Coffee. Nuzzled away near Las Arenas shopping mall in Plaça Espanya, an area rarely praised for its hipsterdom, this stylish space is 100% cool café.
Single-source beans are freshly roasted on-site and expertly ground to craft espresso, Aeropress, V60 and Chemex-based beauties. There’s also a selection of matcha, Japanese and Chinese loose-leaf teas, as well as natural juices, Catalan craft beers and organic wines. A selection of artisanal croissants ensure breakfast is always treat, while the hearty sandwiches hit the spot at any time of day. You’ll also find craft cakes and chunky American-style cookies to complete the experience.
Most importantly, the staff are passionate about what they do and go out of their way to offer personal and attentive service. A beautiful place to get your caffeinated buzz on.
