The Prague Coffee New Wave
A few years ago, locals and tourists could only be envious of the coffee on offer in places like London, Barcelona and Berlin. While they sat in Prague’s musty old cafes drinking something hot and black from the dark ages. But finally the coffee new wave has hit Prague. Now you can find craft coffee. With it’s different varieties of bean and the milk just exactly how you like it.
We thought to highlight a few places worth checking out:
Muj Salek Kavy
Muj Salek Kavy is a cool place that always seems to draw a crowd no matter what the time of day. The staff are people who are quite clearly into coffee. You can stop in for a traditional espresso or cappuccino. Or why not ask the barista for a recommendation on how to have your coffee a little differently.
It’s worth noting that they are the flagship cafe of the Czech roastery Doubleshot. They have just started running coffee courses for any enthusiasts who wants to step up their bean-based game.
EMA Espresso Bar
This modern place keeps things interesting by regularly rotating carefully selected European blends. This gives both locals and tourists alike a reason to return. The place attracts an eclectic mix of people thanks to free wifi, a clean and minimalistic look, and great choice in background music. It’s a great for people watching. And if you like to follow new coffee tech trends then EMA has both V60 and Aeropress on offer.
For small joint with a big reputation for great coffee you should try Kafe Karlin. It’s run by some of the people that work over at the Kavovy Klub. They also run the place for those craving caffeine at the Jiriho z Podebrad farmers markets.
The establishmant is standing room only. If you’ld rather not cramp it out with other patrons then grab your coffee in a paper cup. Stroll over to Simply Good for some kolaches or take a walk in the nearby park.
