Tried the espresso and the tallat (cortado). Both were really good. Always busy and lovely atmosphere.

Get your coffee fix on at this great little place for the best coffee in Barcelona! Only to-go. Be prepared to wait in line. You can also buy beans here.

I would travel back to Barcelona exclusively to experience this coffee situation one more time - and I've already sent numerous travellers in my place! An absolutely exquisite brewing/pouring/tasting set-up with meticulous attention to detail and family-owned and operated charm. An absolute MUST during a visit to Barcelona. Take your coffee to-go and stroll through the gorgeous Gothic quarter afterwards.

Easily the best coffee in Barcelona! Winner of the 2013 Spanish barista awards, with a weekly change of specialty bean this place is a "must visit". With a choice of espresso, siphon, aero press or cold pour. A large range of beans for sale, and coffee equipment. Only down side- limited seating & opens at 10am.

Nice coffee place with freshly grounded coffee to go. Especially if you are not in a hurry to get served and share our deep dislike towards Starbucks, this is a great place to start your day.

There are a lot of places where you can get good coffee in Barcelona but they are going the "extra" mile

Not much else to say, they know coffee. Importantly, they don't over-roast their beans, so they truly have a better brew than "most" of the at-large coffee shops in Barcelona (of which there are 1,000's). If you like your coffee super-stout, bitter, and with just a whiff of milk, then you will be happy with most of the Barcelona cafe's,... More

I've been trying espressos all through Italy, but this one of El Magnifico is quite remarkable. It is strong, but still highly aromatic and with an awesome taste of the fresh coffee grain. Me and my dad were passing by the street and were completely caught up by the unbelievable smell of coffee that was coming from this caffeteria. I'm... More

We take our coffee seriously & appreciate a well made cappuccino...the barista here didn't disappoint. We requested our caps with double shots & the coffee & it's accompanying art was impressive! Not open on Sunday though :(
