-Beans: Henauer "Fazenda Dona Nenem" (Brasil) and others -Machine: Dalla Corte Evolution -This extremly central location near famous Bahnhofstrasse has just been taken over by the people behind coffeebar "Grande". Three coffees are on offer and the well trained baristas pull great shots. Definitely the place to go when shopping in the area.
-Beans: Stoll "Fazenda Nossa Senhora" (Brasil) -Machine: Bialetti Moka Pot -Probably the only place in Zurich that serves coffee out of the popular stovetop moka pots known from home use. As this was developed in collaboration with the former Swiss barista champion, you can expect more than stale italian coffee. Well worth a try!
-Beans: Black&Blaze "India Delight" (Eastern Ghats, India) -Machine: LaMarzocco GB/5 -Slightly off the beaten track in the banking district of Zürich, but with outside seating right by the creek "Schanzengraben", this bar serves a single-origin espresso from super ethical beans. The beans are grown after biodynamic agriculture principles, and the local community profits from various financial benefits. Oh, and they taste pretty good too.
-Beans: Gipfelstürmer "Changaimina" (Ecuador) -Machine: Chemex -This place serves coffee and sells bike accessories, and is still one of the very few places in town that offers filter coffee. This one is very neutral tasting with a hint of bergamot as it cools down.
-Beans: Bonanza Coffee Roastesr "Bonanza Naturals" -Machine: La Marzocco Strada EP -The first true third wave coffee shop in Zürich which does only one thing but does it well: coffee. Espresso, Filter, Coldbrew, you name it, and you'll be satisfied.
-Beans: Black&Blaze "Premium Blend" -Machine: Franke LaSpaziale S9 -What used to be a small park with hardly ever used benches now hosts a pop-up bar over the summer months which is said to stay some years. The Espresso is way better than anyone would expect in such a setting!
-Beans: Badilatti Kaffeeklatsch Davos House Espresso -Machine: Brasilia Opus Sublima -Nice place that has something to offer for every time of the day (besides late nights), including a noteworthy coffee selection that will especially satisfy lovers of milk-creations. The espresso is well extracted and rounds off the experience.
-Beans: Single-Origin from Boyaca (Columbia) -Machine: La Marzocco GB/5 -This place reopened under new owners and is a must for coffee lovers in the area. probably the first place in town that serves a single-origin as their standard espresso drink. thumbs up!
Beans: Rast Barista Espresso & Wiener, plus a changing single-origin from changing roasters -Machine: Rancilio -Close to the University of Zurich, probably the best espresso in the neighborhood. In addition, the young staff provides a refreshing eating experience.
-Beans: Henauer Azzurro - Machine: LaCimbali M39 Dosatron -"Dihei" means "at home" in Swiss German, and this is how you are supposed to feel in there. Don't mind the fact that wooden furniture is not as comfortable as your couch at home, but enjoy an above-average coffee and from what it looks like delicious meal.
-Beans: Rast Barista Espresso & Yirga Cheffe, Stoll Espresso do Brasil -Machine: Dalla Corte Evolution -This so called "gourmet" take away and bar surprises with a nice selection of coffees and well pulled shots. Definitely worth a stop while shopping at the Sihlcity mall.
-Beans: Kaffeepur Black Power & Assemblage No.5 -Machine: La Cimbali M29 Selectron -In my opinion, the roastery offers some of the finest beans in town and this is only one of two places that serve it. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the baristas that work in this place, but the espresso still turns our quite decent.
-Beans: Caffè Carlito "Brasil" -Machine: Faema E61 -Actually a furniture store, but twice a week (Tue & Fri morning) they turn on their nostalgic espressomachine. Right next to the foodmarket that takes place simultaneously, which makes it an interesting stop.
-Beans: Café Noir "Espresso" -Machine: Dalla Corte Evolution -This place offers an above average coffee, a special selection of teas and homemade sweets, such as maccarons, little chocolates and cakes. Their concept is a mix of Japanese and French influences, well combined in a small and cozy atmosphere.
-Beans: Italian Roast & Special Blend by Schwarzenbach -Machine: La Cimbali M32 Dosatron -Coffeebar with its own little bookshop. One of the few good espressi in the area (besides for example in the viadukt), if you're lucky enough to have it prepared by one of the better baristi.
-Beans: Le Puy Espresso by Kaffeepur -Machine: La Pavoni -This cute french style bistro offers an espresso that will blow your mind quite literally, because the high gourmet-robusta content of the blend makes it pretty strong. It's one of those hate it or love it things, but if you don't like the coffee, you'll definitely like something from their big cheese selection.
-Beans: Moka Efti "Sublime" -Machine: Dalla Corte Evolution -The name of the bar means "your mom", not because they want to offend you, but because you should feel comfortable like at home with your mom. The espresso is prepared with care, but for my taste a bit on the weak side.
-Beans: Cafe Noir "Espresso" -Machine: Dalla Corte DC Pro -Here the espresso is served in a little glass. Looks nice, but a bit awkward to hold because the glass gets hot. The machine/bean combo is the same as in the "Kafi Für Dich", and of best quality.
-Beans: Self roasted -Machine: Dalla Corte Mini -Not an actual café but the store of a roaster. You can try the currently promoted espresso for a very small charge and chat with one of the experts in the field while doing so. Best single-origins in Zürich!
-Beans: Cafe Noir "Espresso" -Machine: Dalla Corte DC Pro -Roomy place where people like to work on their laptops, the espresso is very good because it is a) from a local roastery, and b) because they have one of the most advanced and nicest espresso machines out there!
