Coffee in Prague

CREATIVE SPECIALTY COFFEE SHOPS IN PRAGUE

Overview

Did you know that Prague is the home of a famous, metaphorically called ‘Dancing House’ – a building that represents the Yin and Yang philosophy of life?

Dancing house

The Yin and Yang symbol dates back to ancient China and represents the belief that everything in the universe consists of two forces that are opposing but complementary.[1]

In Prague, the dynamic Yin and Yang world view and life wisdom can be observed everywhere!

Contemporary masterpieces complement ancient treasures.

Prague is home to impressive medieval architecture, ornate buildings, cobblestone streets, beautiful parks and charming neighbourhoods where we can explore witty modern art and creative business concepts.

Ema cafe

Prague’s cafes and coffee shops represent the city’s many-sided ‘Yin and Yang’ cultural spirit.

Some cafes have been around for many decades. Have you ever wondered, where Albert Einstein enjoyed sipping coffee? Then you could come to Prague. Famous artists like Einstein or Franz Kafka visited these places in search of inspiration and peace.

In Prague, we can also find an increasing number of new, blooming specialty coffee shops. All of them enhance the ‘Golden City’s’ creative vibes.

We explored various, different specialty coffee shops in Prague and experienced unique moments that satisfied our senses!

Below, you will find a list of specialty coffee shops that you should not miss in Prague.

The list includes coffee shops that:

– offer coffee drinks from fresh roasted coffee

– grind the beans freshly every time before they brew the coffee

– prepare Batch Brew or other alternative preparation methods

– make it their priority to serve excellent coffee and some small dishes and deserts on the side

–  use a manual or semi-automatic coffee machine

–  offer not only flavours, but also an inspiring environment and friendly customer service

SUSTAINABLE FARMING – HARMONY IN DIVERSITY

“The essence of beauty is unity in variety.” –

Felix Mendelssohn, German composer (1809 – 1847)

Coffee plantation

Many coffee farmers do not only grow coffee plants on their plantations. Instead. They cultivate the coffee plants in the in the shade of taller trees together with various types of fruits and vegetables such as bananas or corn. In doing so, farmers not only gain additional income from the fruits and vegetables. But they also promote a sustainable coffee production and therefore impact on the environment in a positive way. For example, taller trees not only provide shade for coffee plants, but they also stabilize the soil and attract birds. A rich fauna attracts pollinators and supports a healthy soil.

INTERESTING IDEA FROM CHIANG MAI

Coffee stall in Chiang Mai

The idea comes originally from Vietnam.

There, local people offer freshly prepared tea on markets for a donation. The tea-maker is brewing the tea. The guests sit on small chairs around tea maker while holding tea-cups in their hands. When the tea is ready, the tea-maker will offer the tea to the people, who sit around him. Once the guests had enough tea, they will give their donations into a box. It’s a great opportunity to have a break, to socialize and to refresh yourself.
