Coffe lover? No worries, I just happen to know a great place to enjoy your daily dose of black gold (coffee)
After waking up in the morning the first thing I crave is not my lover’s kiss but a cup of coffee, that’s why I can’t imagine life without it. So in search of the best coffee cup, I wondered around my city, Bucharest, to find it.
Give yourself a cosy moment at Origo
Origo is the place, the Mecca of coffee for me, where the perfect house blend is roasted in(!) and where you’ll get mesmerized by the perfect cup of double espresso.(I know, too much perfection for anyone to handle)
I don’t think that is a great place for smokers, but if you really enjoy a good espresso you can make a sacrifice and wait untill the next cigarette.
Why do I love Origo? Well it’s easy. Cold Brew Coffee, which is prepared in almost 10 hours and the taste is incredible! Another reason is the perfect location, on Lipscani Street, near Bucharest’s old centre, and the amazing inside. During the day the coffee shop acts like one, but after 8 PM it trasforms itself in a trendy little non smoking cocktail bar.
And the music is fantastic, tunes like the XX , Massive Attack and Empire of the Sun really make the coffee moment enjoyable.
ORIGO’s interior design is extremly smart and cosy
I love the inside filled with cups, I mean 276 cups of coffee, lights made out of V60 brewing equipment and wooden tables and chairs, the baristats are professionals and very kind and the main product, the coffee, is excellent!
The best selling product is the Flat White made out of two espresso shots and a lot of creamy milk, served in a red cup. Just a great way to begin the evening without the caffeine punch! And here, the water is on the house.. so great! But whatever you find enjoyable, you will come back here for the whole experience.
I’ve seen great people around, a lot of tourists and I can tell you that the best thing about Origo is that it will never become flavoured/sugary/stabucksy! NEVER! So if you think about coming to Bucharest , please try this coofee shop, I reccomend it with all my ”cofee lover heart”!
