Tamp & Pull – coffee in Budapest

Rumor has it that the new wave coffee scene in Budapest got a kick start with the opening of Tamp & Pull by barista Attila Molnar, who competed in the World Barista Championships in 2009. He didn’t win, but never the less – he know what he is doing for sure.

Tamp & Pull’s friendly staff and great coffee makes it worth while to visit this coffee shop. They primarily serve coffee from UK coffee roasters Has Bean.

I brought two bags with me when returning from Budapest this time around:
Brazil Fazenda Cachoeria da Grama and Los Jocotales from Antigue, Guatemala. Fab coffee to say the least! But it is actually even more fab to have it at Tamp & Pull! Go visit them. Go go!

Madal – coffee – Budapest


Madal Espresso & Brew Bar happens to be my all time favorite coffee shop. Not so much because of the premises itself, but the coffee, t.h.e. c.o.f.f.e.e.!! It is simply the most delicious coffee ever. The coffee they serve is from Beyond Within.

When in Budapest, and if you like good coffee (mind you if you think all coffee is somewhat alike, don’t bother – this place is for those that really understand to appreciate a really good brew) do yourself a favor: pay a visit to Madal.

There are two locations to choose from:

1/ Hollán Ernö utca 3
2/ Ferenciek tere 3

My personal favorite is the place at Hollán. Specially in the summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the weather meanwhile sipping that ice latte, cortado, cappuccino or whatever your heart desires.

Gerbeaud Café – Budapest

If you are looking for a grand experience of old times, look no further. Here it is – Gerbeaud Café in Budapest. Apart from the most delicious cakes and tartes the interior is decorated as in the old, grand, times – stucco, chandeliers, exotic wood panels as well as furniture. And you know what – there is even [nowadays] a Gerbeaud in Tokyo (more about that later). Although I do love the third wave coffee houses – I still love the wings of history now and then. And this place is definitely a must.
