Barcelona may be a city brimming with coffee shops but finding a decent cup amongst the sea of tepid cafés con leche can be a challenge. Enter Hidden, a speciality coffee shop offering a selection of imported filter and espresso coffees, a range of teas and a matcha bar. At Hidden, local co-founders Mateo González and Carlos Moral want people to break free from their caffeine comfort zones, “open their minds” and discover more about different types of coffee. If you feel intimidated by the seemingly endless brew options, fear not, the skilled and passionate baristas are on hand for recommendations. Alongside the beverages, Hidden offers a selection of freshly prepared food, including artisan sandwiches, wholesome salad boxes and tempting cakes provided by Súper Coffee & Food Store in Poblenou, with plenty of gluten-free and vegan options. The café has a sustainability and traceability ethos at its core, with carefully sourced ingredients and every last detail considered, from the water supply to presentation. If you’d like to learn a thing or two about the science behind the cup, workshops are held on the last Thursday of every month.
