The Specialty Coffee Lover’s Bucket List: A Journey Around the World
As a self-confessed coffee fanatic, I’m on a mission to share with you the best must-visit cafes around the world. Get ready to explore incredible destinations, steeped in coffee culture, and full of delicious aroma as we embark on this caffeine-fueled adventure together.
What Makes a Coffee Shop ‘Specialty?’
A specialty coffee shop is more than just your average cafe. Sure, they whip up lattes and cappuccinos, but the coffee beans they use are typically directly sourced from small farming operations. These beans are roasted in-house, handled by professional baristas, and brewed using precise techniques that bring out every flavor note. For lovers of the bean, these places aren’t just cafes—they’re temples to the art of coffee making.
The Thrill of Discovering Istanbul’s Unique Coffee Culture
There’s more to Istanbul’s morning cup than meets the eye. Perched in the rooftop at Mandabatmaz, looking out over the city while savoring a piping hot cup of traditional Turkish coffee, you’ll understand why. This cafe takes its name from the Turkish phrase “so thick even a buffalo would not sink,” which perfectly encapsulates the delightfully robust flavor of their brew. The rich heritage and sensational taste make it a place worthy of any coffee lover’s bucket list.
Sipping Elegance in Paris’ Le Cafe Alain Ducasse

Here, coffee is prepared to perfection with meticulous craft and passion. What’s not to love? It certainly is la crème de la crème of Parisian café culture.
The Joy of Coffee Craftsmanship In Tokyo’s Fuglen
Tokyo’s Fuglen is a night owl’s dream come true. This vintage cocktail bar-cum-coffee-shop serves specialty brews by day and tantalizing drinks by night. But creeping in here right when the sun crawls up gives an uncanny experience – the precision involved in the brewing process is nothing short of mesmerizing. A stark contrast to bustling Tokyo, the beautiful simplicity of Fuglen is indeed heartwarming.
