More Than Great Coffee
In recent years, Prague’s coffee scene has moved forward at a rapid pace and Prague is just a small step away from becoming a café superpower along the lines of London, Berlin, or New York. Why is Prague unique for its coffee?
The impact of the third coffee wave has combined with the new young generation of professionals enthusiastically dedicated to coffee. Prepare yourself for high-quality Czech roasters, all the current trends, and a unique local coffee culture concept.
The intense competition and popularity of cafés with the locals has kept prices at a reasonable level – in Prague, you can get top-notch coffee for cheaper than in any other caffeine metropolis.
Prague’s long history gives every café a unique context. Architecture, design, and art blend together in businesses both old and new. The variety of styles and the individuality of the various neighbourhoods are what makes Prague special.
Czech sweets are delicious and pair well with coffee. Cafés often make their own desserts in-house, or else have them made by a local producer. Cakes, pies, cream puffs – don’t even think about leaving before you try one.
