“By far the best coffee in Barcelona!”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

I found this place by accident while exploring Borne.
I bought 1kg of coffee from the shop. And returned multiple times for Cortados from the espresso bar.

Lovely staff. Well trained baristas.

Good quality milk which is rare in Barcelona.
The ideal coffee venue for me.

Visited in April this year. Will be returning to BCN this week with the family.
Can't wait to introduce my old man (who is a coffee nut) to this place.

“Great variety”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Not so much a cafe, more a store to buy some really good coffee. Staff are helpful and will whip up a cup of free coffee while you wait.

“Very good coffee”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

This is a coffee shop, so there is just 1 small table, and a bench to sit on. Compared to all the crappy coffee we had in the vacation, this shop produced very good double shot capuchinio that we enjoyed very much. You might have to wait for the table to clear if you want to sit down properly.

“Best coffee i've ever had”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

Café El Magnifico has what is basically a catalogue of coffees from all over the world with all the facts that might influence your decision listed alongside them. They have a description of the flavours in 3 languages and you can have your coffee prepared one of 4 or 5 ways, (drip, French press, etc.). when you order your coffee it is brewed right there and then so it is always 100% fresh, the people who make the coffee are comparable to chemist. They really know what they're doing and make good recommendations. I`m genuinely disappointed I may not get a chance to go there again.
