Reviews of Cafés el Magnífico
I visited this cafe specifically because I had read about it on Beanhunter. I was impressed by the variety of single origins on offer but not the coffee itself. I ordered a Yirgacheffe on V60 - my favourite and maybe the best coffee growing region in the world. I had actually had that very same coffee before but from a different roaster. Theirs was so dark that around 90% of the flavour had been lost. Their recipe caused the coffee to overextract too. That being said, I had a nice chat with the baristas that were there about the Spanish coffee scene so thumbs up for that aspect.
Opens from 10 till 20 hours Monday till Saturday. Worth visiting as the coffee is excellent. They prepare coffee in all the forms you get with good barista's in Australia and are proud to display the many Spanish barista trilogy's they have won. Today's beans were Paraguy and were strong and delicious. Four of us had two caps and two lattes and all were delicious.
Chanced on this place on a nightwalk after miraculously booking a weekend in an apartment nearby. As others have already discovered, a God-send in this beautiful. Will not disappoint. However, it can get busy and (like the Picasso Museum) can have a queue out the door. Best to get there early (10am - Spanish dawn)
The best coffe in Barcelona, top baristas directed by one of the best roasters in the world, Salvador Sans. A place were the love to the bean, the know how, the passion on serving the perfect cop of coffee, and a smyle in the face of " Los magnificos" makes every visit a special moment. If you are lucky you will see Salvador roasting. They roast at the store
I went searching for this place in the streets of Barcelona and was not disappointed. After countless long-life milk coffees and awfully poured shots, this place was a godsend. They offer syphon, V60, Chemex and espresso coffee, along with a book about all coffee they offer. And it was delicious. Really lovely and helpful staff who are happy for a chat.
