I always say a visit somewhere is not complete without popping into some coffee spots. Here are 5 places in Delft you must visit when in town.
They are fairly new on the coffee scene and serve a shot worth taking your time on.
It’s just a shame though that they are not open until 8 in the evening, like this article mentions, for the coffee addicts among us that like a good coffee late in the evening or after an early dinner in town. Cortado’s website mentions 7 in the evening so what is it? Anyway, that’s just me nitpicking — they are a must visit.
Not your ordinary place for grabbing a coffee but that’s becoming a trend nowadays — a “coffee spot in a shop” I call it 🙂
You can’t go wrong ordering a shot here, just don’t spill on the furniture 😉
Kek coffee & crafts:
A nice place to grab a shot if you can find a seat, it’s quite a popular place and gets quite hot and steamy when busy but don’t let that prevent you from checking it out.
They roast their own coffee and you can get a great shot but just be sure to go on the right day as you might find yourself standing in front of a locked door — they are not open every day of the week; and only one day in the weekend.
Koffie en zo:
Honestly, I haven’t been there yet but the place looks promising and I will definitely pop in when I am in Delft again.
Check my coffee spots page out for the addresses.
Here’s an interesting read on the fundamentals of coffee tasting. It’s actually an interview with a sensory scientist but still very interesting and will kick-start your journey in coffee tasting.
Taste is what we perceive in our mouths as one, multiple or combination of the five sensations: sweet, salty, bitter, sour or savoury (umami). Aroma is perceived by our retronasal system — our internal nose and that is what makes us think/say that an ice cream tastes like vanilla.
Go on… take a read.
Just added a few — there are many more — coffee spots in Napoli to my coffee spots page. Be sure to try them when in Naples, Italy.
It took some time but here it is… My new and improved coffee spots page.
It’s now full-screen and you can search for a specific country or town.
No coffee spots in the country or town you searched? I haven’t been there yet or don’t know any coffee spots there 🙂 .
This is something different from my usual espresso after dinner: a turkish coffee
Tasty, but some advice from my side… don’t drink straight away, don’t drink too fast and be careful near the end. You don’t want a mouth full of the muddy grounds awaiting you at the bottom.
Coffee not doing it for you? Does coffee not give you that power it used to? Maybe it’s time to start drinking coffee smarter.
Here’s an article I came across today with a great graphic containing 7 steps to becoming a smarter coffee drinker:
The idiot’s guide to smarter coffee drinking
Ignore that it’s an idiot’s guide – that’s a bit harsh. You are not an idiot for not knowing these facts and figures.
Prepping some cold brew for tomorrow, another hot day 🙂
My caffeinated start to the afternoon: Chemex with some Colombian Cocondo from Man met Bril
Is this the best cup of coffee ever?
Awesome isn’t it? 🙂
This was my mornings wake me up: a shot — actually a double — by Man met Bril Koffie, Het Hoofdkantoor.
Popped in there this morning on the way to work for some beans and thought I might as well grab an espresso. It was a nice and juicy Bourbon from El Salvador.
