Cappuccino Café Amárena

Late night cappuccino at Café Amárena.

OK but not great.

Problem is neither barista nor espresso machine, the problem is poor quality coffee used. Ideally also need better grinders, Mythos One for espresso, EK 43 for pour over and cold brew.

No excuse when these days spoilt for choose, many excellent coffee roasteries to choose from, both for beans for espresso and single origin for filter coffee, though not in Cyprus. (see below)

Having said that, far better than anything will get in Protaras.

Earlier in the evening, had passed by Starbucks, as always when pass by, empty. Sunday as an act of desperation, Starbucks illegally hawking their drinks Fig Tree Bay.

Whilst at Café Amárena a cold drip tower on the counter slowly brewing, one dip a second.

As a foot note a few suggestions from where to source coffee.

  • England
    • Hasbean
    • Square Mile
    • Horsham Coffee Roasters
    • Dark Woods
    • Caravan
    • Origin

    • Girls Who Grind
    • Cartwheel Coffee
    • Pharmacie
  • Athens
    • Taf

    • Taresso
    • Mind the Cup
  • Berlin
    • The Barn
    • Five Elephant
    • Bonanza
