Among several other delights, it turns out that Budapest is chock full of specialty coffee shops. I swear, I saw signs along the lines of “we serve speciality coffee” outside of what seemed like every other cafe around the city.
If there’s one thing I know well, it’s the best cafes in Bondi to get some work done on my laptop. As a digital nomad turned Sydney-based freelancer, I have spent the better part of my working hours these last two years hopping from Bondi cafe to Bondi cafe, seeking a workspace that felt juuuuuuust right (y’know, Goldilocks-style).
I spent a good chunk of November immersed in the coffee world: I become a regular at My Other Brother while living in Camberwell, tried out a few new Melbourne cafes (Monk Bodhi Dharma and Prospect Espresso were ace finds), and most exciting of all – I enrolled in a bunch of barista courses at the Australian Barista Academy (ABA).
I doubt anyone gets as much enjoyment out of my coffee posts as I do, but on the off chance that a fellow coffee snob happens to be in a city that I’ve written a coffee shop roundup for, someone else may actually read through and appreciate them!
I’ve spent the entirety of my near-7 years in NYC living in the Williamsburg, Brooklyn area. As a self-proclaimed coffee snob, I can say with assurance that I’ve carefully sampled this neighborhood’s coffee.
You know the drill by now. Lindsay visits a new city –> Lindsay samples ALL THE COFFEE.
Upon further reflection, I think I really need to organize my coffee crawls a bit better.
I had few things on my agenda for the 2.5 weeks I spent in London last summer. Fresh off a 5 month backpacking trip around Asia, I wanted to relish some free time without the pressure of having to run around and sightsee every day.
Part of my travel routine is googling ‘best coffee in _______’ when visiting any new city. Then, in the name of coffee snobbery, I feel obligated to sample as many of these coffee shops as possible and report back on them.
