“No decaf, no wi-fi, no fun for children.” Satan’s Coffee Corner is a pretty cool place. The bar is open, the kitchen is open, the windows are from floor to ceiling, the music is good and the coffee is divine.
The place is basically designed so that the barista welcomes you and, once you’re seated, you feel like inside the bar: in front of you, there’s the espresso machine where he is preparing your coffee.
Two steps away, on your right, there’s breakfast, created in situ by a Japanese chef (and artist).
The atmosphere is relaxed, and you can enjoy the omnipresent theme of Satan in many illustrations created by various artists and hung on the walls.
Marcos Bartolomé opened Satan’s Coffee Corner a few years ago. In its beginnings, Satan’s Coffee Corner was just a window for takeaway coffee, without tables or chairs, a constant transforming space, in Raval, actually Barcelona’s smallest coffee shop. From there, he moved to the rear of a bicycle shop and, now, to a nice welcoming space in Call, pretty close to Plaça Sant Jaume.
Coffee comes from all parts of the world, from Ethiopia to Columbia and from Morocco to Jamaica, it is roasted by Right Side (Castelldefels) and Cafés El Magnífico (Barcelona) and varies according to the time of the year and the harvest of the respective countries.
Besides this cafe in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, there’s one more Satan’s Coffee near Plaça Tetuán, at hotel Casa Bonay.
