Think of El Magnifico as the father of Barcelona’s coffee culture. Or, perhaps, grandfather, given that the shop has been open since 1919. This family business is the source of coffee for many stores and restaurants in the city due to their wide variety of beans (over 40 options) and, above all, the premium quality of coffee. A visit to this small, unpretentious take-away joint in the Born will encourage you to learn more about coffee as these connoisseurs will enthusiastically explain to you where today’s crop originates from and what brewing methods they prefer. It only takes a sip to realise that the name really doesn’t lie: this coffee is just magnifico.
