CAFÉ / Dalston Coffee : from London to Barcelona

Three months ago, a new coffee shop was born in Barcelona! Inspired by the atmosphere of Dalston, this chill district of East London, Borja opened Dalston Coffee in the Raval.

We discovered it while we were strolling in the heart of Barcelona, close to the cute Plaça de Vicenç Martorell. Because there are not so many places where you can find a really good coffee here, we were very excited to discover this new born coffee shop and chat with Borja to know more about his story.

How did everything happen?

Borja is a Chef. Before diving into the coffee world, he has been working for several renowned establishments. At this time, he didn't really know about specialty coffee. He discovered this world after tasting a flat white in London. That very moment, he realized he was drinking something really different, a new drink actually. As a Chef, while he knew quite a lot about cooking, pastries and wine, he realized coffee had always remained quite a mystery to him. From this moment on, he got passionate about specialty coffee and built his project: open a coffee shop in his home town, Barcelona.

What kind of coffee / tea can you find at Dalston?

Borja only works with specialty coffee. He currently uses coffee from Nomad for the espresso and filter, as well as organic coffee from Esperanza Café for filter. As for tea, he chose to work with Masala, that offers a great selection of fine teas.

What we loved down there?

The talents of Borja as a barista, so fast to prepare an amazing café latte to take away. But also the cold brew, really sweet and balanced, with ice cubes made of coffee. Pretty clever!
