Prague’s coffee new wave
Not even a few years ago, locals and tourists could only be envious of the coffee on offer in trendy places like London, Barcelona and Berlin, while they sat in years-old cafes drinking something unimaginatively hot and black. But nowadays, the coffee new wave has finally hit Prague and craft coffee – think different varieties of been and the milk done just exactly how you like it – is here to stay.
We thought we’d highlight a few of the places worth checking out while you’re here
Muj Salek Kavy
Muj Salek Kavy is a cool place that always seems to draw a crowd no matter what the time of day. Staffed by people quite clearly dedicated to coffee, you can stop in for a traditional espresso or cappuccino or hit the baristas up for a few recommendations on how to have your coffee a little differently.
It’s worth noting that they are the flagship cafe of the Czech roastery Doubleshot, who have just started running coffee courses for any enthusiasts out there that want to take their bean-based curiosity a little further.
EMA Espresso Bar
EMA keep things mixed up by regularly rotating carefully selected European blends they have on offer, giving locals and tourists alike a reason to come back. Thanks to free wifi, a clean, minimalistic look and great choice in background music the place attracts an eclectic mix of people and is great for people watching.
And, if you’re one of those people that like to follow new coffee tech trends, EMA has both V60 and Aeropress on offer.
Kafe Karlin is a small joint with a big reputation for great coffee and is run by some of the people that worked over at Kavovy Klub – the goto place for those craving caffeine at the Jiriho z Podebrad farmers markets.
The place is standing room only, so rather than cramp it out with other patrons, grab your coffee to go in a paper cup and wander over to Simply Good for some kolaches or take a stroll in the nearby park.
