Coffee, one of the world’s most consumed drinks, is living a real revolution. Long gone are the times of mediocre cups of coffee in bars or cute coffee places, of coloured coffee makers using capsules that made an excessively toasted, tasteless coffee. The third way is already here. It’s a movement that started in the US thanks to baristas, professional coffee makers who know a lot about toasting; some coffee places there even have microtoasters with which they can prepare a great variety of coffee drinks.
Now, here’s #Good2bTop5 coffee places where you can enjoy your favourite in coffee-infused drinks made with V60, Chemex, Hario, Aeropress… No, they’re not spaceships or secret planets—they’re just machines to make your next favourite drug, specialty coffee.
