It is time to reclaim the credibility of the word ‘hipster’. The actual definition is ‘a person who follows the latest trends outside of the cultural mainstream’, not ‘bloke with a beard who likes more obscure things than you’. The coffee industry has benefited hugely from the hipster revolution, and we’re more than happy to cling on to the coat-tails (sometimes literally) of the young people, especially if it means a great cup of coffee and some truly unique locations.
Smashing artisanal coffee, a prime spot next to the river and the Torre del Oro, and all the charm of a charm factory. What’s not to like? Torch Coffee Roasters sits confidently at the top table of cafes in Seville, a coffee joint that understands its beans and knows just what to do with them. The atmosphere is tailor-made for savouring the hot stuff in the cup in front of you, so head here with plenty of time to enjoy it.
A cafe for coffee experts, by coffee experts. Parceria is a place for lovers of all things brew, a cafe that maximises its minimalist interior in the quest for a coffee-centric home in which to enjoy some of the best brews in town. It isn’t the most central of places but that somehow adds to its charms, making it a haven for local coffee fiends who enjoy great drinks in a modern, colourful space.
You know that part in the ‘best cafes’ intro where we talk about reading a good book with a great cup of coffee in endearing surroundings? El Viajero Sedentario might just be the dictionary definition of such a situation. This is our ideal environment, in short. The live music and frequent short film nights just add to the offer, making this place a cultural centre in a cafe in a city. Delightful.
Don’t be fooled by the name, you know what you’re going to get from this place. In short, that means great coffee, unbeatably friendly service, and some of the most refreshing juices in this immensely hot city. The cakes are great too, as are the health food bowls that will fill you with energy for the busy day ahead.
Located just a short walk from the Palacio de las Dueñas, Virgin Coffee is another in a growing line of coffee-centric places in this most vibrant of cities. These people take coffee very seriously, although that isn’t by sacrificing the conviviality that is essential to any cafe worth its salt. This is a place for coffee veterans and newcomers a like, brought together by the need for caffeine and companionship.
