Looking for the best coffee in Barcelona? Read our guide on where to find it!

Coffee culture in Spain is an interesting concept. It is such a huge part of daily life, yet there is little to be said about its quality. Sure, a café con leche can really hit the spot, but it would be a sad loss if the regular Spanish cup of joe were put up to compete with, say, its Italian counterpart.

A new wave of coffee culture has come over Barcelona, and coffee snobs couldn’t be more thrilled. So for something a little more special than the usual, check out these five spots for coffee connoisseurs in Barcelona.

You may have heard that Satan's Coffee Corner makes the best coffee in Barcelona. They may be the most famous, but they're not the only great, modern coffee shop in town! Since we all know that morning caffeine hit is essential while traveling, take a look at our guide to coffee in Barcelona, Spain #coffee #firstmealoftheday #breakfast #barcelona #visitbarcelona #travelgoals #travelmore

Satan’s Coffee Corner

The people at Satan’s Coffee Corner, a lovely little cafe in the Gothic, were some of the first in Barcelona’s recent coffee movement. Literally starting off in a tiny corner of a bike shop, they are finally proud to have their own spot, sans wifi and all. This is one of the best places to get coffee in Barcelona.

Address: Carrer de l’Arc de Sant Ramon de Call, 11

Nømad Coffee Productions

The only problem with Nømad being on one of the most charming streets in all of Barcelona is that it doesn’t open on weekends. The street, or passage, only opens mid-week. No worries, get there during the week to enjoy its serenity over a perfectly concocted cup of coffee.

Address: Passatge Sert, 12

Federal Café

On a very pleasant and sunny corner of Sant Antoni’s Parlament Street, find the incredibly successful Federal. A three-story airy cafe that not only takes pride in great coffee but also boasts some fantastic eats. Did someone say brunch?

Address: Carrer del Parlament, 39

Skye Coffee

From a sleek food truck to an airy warehouse, Skye Coffee is the perfect spot to soak up the ever-so-trendy Barcelona foodie scene. These people are at every food event the city has to offer, and they host some of their own as well.

Address: Carrer de Pamplona, 88

Cafés el Magnifico

And here we save the best for last. Cafés el Magnifico, a classic and the true pioneer of good coffee in Barcelona, is a shop that takes their art very, very seriously. Here you can find some of the best beans in the world, as well as a small area to have a very well-prepared cappuccino. Hidden in the heart of El Born, grab a coffee to go and wander!

Address: Carrer de l’Argenteria, 64

    I have been searching for Italian roast or french roast. I finally found pour over drip at Cafe Manso. They use the medium roast beans so adored by the nouveau cafe scene everywhere. I have been a coffee snob longer than most of these passionate barristas have been alive. I want high quality dark roast. I have been to Nomad- really nice people and they tried hard to help. I did by beans there but i cry every morning when i make coffee. I went to Departure around the corner and they were also very nice and understood what i was looking for. The sent me to Magnifico where I was barraged with snotty exclamations. To be fair my Spanish is not that good and they are in the heart of a tourist area. Departure Carrer de la Verge, 1 is a fantastic cafe, funky, hand crafted tables, antique industrial coffee equipment. Finally today I found 081 Italian Coffee Lab carrer d’argo, 187. Real espresso. They don’t sell beans so i will keep looking.
