This is the café for those who are meticulous when it comes to their coffee. El Magnifico is the said to have the best coffee in Barcelona. Whether you’re partial to cappuccino, cortado or latte, El Magnifico will measure up to your highest standards.

They have single origin roasts so you can pick beans from different locations. They have a book where you can get an idea on where a bean came from and what it tastes like so you can taste coffee from everywhere without having to leave their premises. They even do their own roasting so you can tell how serious they are with what they do.

They have fast service but it can get crowded at times since it is near the Picasso Museum and you’ll have to compete with a lot of tourists. But believe us when we say that having to fall in line for a cup of their macchiato will be worth it. Cafes El Magnifico’s love for coffee puts it atop our list of coffee lovers cafe Barcelona 2016
