SPECIALTY  COFFEE SHOPS

CZECH REP.

PRAGUE
KAFE KARLIN, is small cafe close, or better written one tram stop from the central bus station. Open early morning, good place for take way coffee. Coffee made via drip or espresso is just normal nothing special. https://www.facebook.com/kafekarlin/

Barry Higgel’s Coffehouse, nice coffee house in residential area of Prague, they often change coffee roaster, so you can find there some interesting beans.Quality of coffee is depend of person, who are preparing this. So, good luck. https://www.facebook.com/BarryHiggel1704/

Paralelní Polis, cafe place where they accept for payment only Bittorrent, so, internet currency, if you have not, you can not buy coffee. The coffee what was made with Barista was fine, but the drip was not nothing special. This time, when I was there, they used Bean up coffee, from Slovakia. The coffee from the roastery is quite good quality, so it was more on Barista. https://www.facebook.com/vejdiven/

DOUBLE B, cafe what is connect to Russan roastery, from Moscow. They have same coffee beans, but roasted in Prague. The cafe place is close to Museum. They use more lighter roasted coffee beans, as for drip coffee, same for espresso, I liked more there espresso, than drip or filter coffee. https://www.facebook.com/doublebpraha/?fref=ts

ORIGINAL COFFEE,cafe place in the old town, close to Charles’s bridge, place looks nice, comfortable for relax in nice sunny day, very simple but interesting, service is very good, espresso either, drip made coffee is just normal, nothing special. They roast own coffee beans, which as well importing direct from farms. https://www.facebook.com/originalcoffeepraha/?fref=ts

MAMACOFFEE, nice place, they have a couple cafe places around Prague and some own roasted coffee beans. They offer breakfast and people who works there there are quite friendly. But both espresso and drip made coffee just normal, nothing extra nice. https://www.facebook.com/mamacoffee/?fref=ts

YES CAFE, not bad place, close to city center, in nice residential location, nice place for work and enjoy coffee, the espresso is fine, the filter coffee they know describe, but not prepare. They use Bonanza beans from Berlin. https://www.facebook.com/yeskafestudio/

EMA cafe, one of the most central Artisan cafe place, but in my opinion, one of the worst, service very bad, not friendly at all, coffee, not idea what method they used I ask for drip coffee, but taste was more as very weak americano, not communication.No-commandeered.

MISTO CAFE, similar conception as “Muj salek kavy” cafe, but the coffee is not too good as at other cafe, even they use same beans. https://www.facebook.com/mistoprovas/?hc_ref=SEARCH&fref=nf

MUJ SALEK KAVY, cafe, I can write, this only of a couple good places, where you can find very good coffee and very tasty foodd, not big selection, but everything is perfect. Maybe service is sometime to slow, but only small detail.  https://www.facebook.com/mujsalekkavy/?fref=ts

SLOVAKIA

KOSICE
SCHALKHAZ CAFE, is I think only one cafe place in this bigger city, what is shame, where you can have good drip made coffee. They make drip coffee in the city on more places but usually is very low quality,so not point spend money for this. Maybe can be good in Halmi cafe, but when I was there there only prepare to sell drip coffee. Better to do at home and many locals, they do this. If go to center, they go for tea or beer, but not for coffee. If you will on the place ask for Barista Karol, I think he is doing the best there. https://www.facebook.com/schalkhaz/?fref=ts
