Excellent coffee! I tried the cold brew and loved it. The owner is really friendly and happy to share his passion for coffee. The place is lovely, very colourful. If you love coffee, you have to stop there!

For serious coffee drinkers in Ljubljana, this is the #1 choice. The owner, from Colombia , knows his single source beans and some unusual ways to brew them. Highly recommend the cold brew, shaken not stirred like a James Bond martini, and served in a...More

First and just one speciality coffee place in Ljubljana, but I'm pretty sure, that would be no.1 between many. Nice small spot, with smily owner Alex and his fabulous coffee.

Cool little hole in the wall coffee place with some nice looking tiles! The owner knew his coffee very well and explained where the beans were from that week. They sell a cold brew coffee which was really good.

Whilst small, Crno Zrno is a visually striking cafe in the old town of Ljubljana. The proprietor serves coffee from beans grown in his home-country of Columbia - we had a flat white, chemex filter and cappuccino across two days and all were great.

Thank you for your review. We enjoy preparing our Colombian coffees while sharing the stories of the small holder farmers producing it. We are glad that our clients come back, no matter how short is their stay in Ljubljana.

Črno Zrno means Black Bean. This fantastic niche espresso bar is niche in more ways than one. For a start it’s literally a hole-in-the-wall café with a bit of street space, and the barista is also an architect so naturally what space there is is somewhat beautiful. It also exclusively serves specialty Colombian coffees, roasted for them locally and brewed to perfection: espresso, V60, Chemex, Aeropress, coldbrew, milky coffees, specialty brews and takeaways are also available. With an atmosphere more like a shrine that a café, coffee nerds should head here to talk beans as long as they like and possibly grab a good shot. They develop workshops, collaborate with local restaurants in food pairing events and sell coffee for home.
