I used to think that I had fallen out of love with coffee; it often seemed so bitter. For some reason, the barista at Al Ponte's in Amsterdam convinced me that this had to do with the low quality coffee that is often used in cafés. Absolutely true: Al Ponte's coffees are a delight of taste and both strength and smoothness. Maybe it needs real Italians, actually Italian ladies, to brew good coffee.
On top of this, the site is wonderful: a large stretch of water in front of you, a wide sky .. the world's your oyster.
