7 of Our Favorite Cafés with the Best Coffee in Barcelona
In recent years, the specialty coffee scene has been making itself known in Barcelona, one trendy café at a time. As we’ve mentioned before, Spanish coffee, in the classic torrefacto style, leaves something to be desired for those who didn’t grow up drinking this burnt, slightly sweet coffee. However, a number of coffee lovers and entrepreneurs have built up Barcelona’s specialty coffee scene, and a whole world of coffeehouse culture with it. Here are 7 of our favorite spots to get the best coffee in Barcelona, from charming, historic cafés to hip, fun coffee shops.
Nomad Coffee Lab & Shop
Nomad is one of the top names when talking about the best coffee in Barcelona, and for good reason. The dedicated baristas behind the bar are involved in every step, from roasting the beans to pouring out each cup of carefully crafted coffee. Nomad sources its beans from around the globe, bringing specialty coffee home to Barcelona. Additionally, Nomad offers workshops for other aspiring baristas to learn the tricks of the trade!

Hush Hush Café
Hush Hush is a cozy French café in the heart of El Born, one of Barcelona’s most historic neighborhoods. Coffee lovers will rejoice at the options they have at Hush Hush, as the standard Spanish café hasn’t caught on to the trends of oat milk or iced lattes yet. This café also has a tasty tapas menu, making it a delightful place to have brunch or a snack.

Morrow Coffee is a specialty coffee shop that takes caffeine seriously. Just a stone’s throw away from Plaza Espanya, this is the perfect place for a pick-me-up after some sightseeing. Morrow roasts its beans in-house and changes up the variety of beans frequently to explore new flavors. Dreaming of a flat white or iced coffee and coming up short in Barcelona? This is your spot.
Satan’s Coffee Corner
Satan’s Coffee Corner was one of the first on Barcelona’s specialty coffee scene and is still a favorite when it comes to trendy coffee spots. The team of international baristas created something unique at Satan’s opening to door to specialty coffee in 2012. Specialty brews, hand-crafted drinks, and a café with a chill but unique vibe make it a place that customers keep coming back to. Satan’s Coffee Corner prides itself on high-quality coffee, its creativity, and for being a pioneer on the Barcelona coffee scene.
If you’re not into the hip, trendy cafés serving specialty coffee, but still want to try some of the best coffee in Barcelona, Cafès Roure might be the spot for you. This tiny little café in Sant Antoni is part coffee shop and part retailer, selling beans and roasts from all over the world. You can grab a cup of coffee at the bar or snag one of the handfuls of tables, and sample the week’s selection of roasted coffee. This is excellent coffee, without the frills.
