Whether or not you like the coffee in Moscow depends... What kind of coffee do you like? Europeans mostly drink espresso and espresso drinks, which is mostly what you can find here. The standard menu in Moscow includes espresso, americano, and latte.
But what about drip coffee????? I know, right. There are a FEW coffee bars and specialty shops that offer drip, hario, french press, aeropress, or some combination of the former brew methods for all you coffee snobs.
As it turns out, almost all of those shops turned out for the Moscow coffee festival this Sunday at FLACON.
Some of the main names there were:
WEST 4 - (personally, my favorite)
KOF. - pretty delicious pour over, I bought
some beans from them as well
PRAVDA Coffee (Gave me a free bag of beans- WHAT?)
If you're on the hunt for good coffee, you might also try Red. Espresso bar near Barrikadnaya.
I like the pour over at Coffee Bean (near Chisty Prudy, Suharevskaya) and you can buy filters there, but I've heard mixed reviews from coffee lovers more snobbish than I.
If you have checked out some of these cafes, or have more pour over recommendations to include, write 'em in a comment!
