Specialised in espresso making, Intenso caffe 7gr is a treat for coffee lovers. You might say that in a country where drinking coffee is almost as regular as drinking water, an authentic Italian espresso bar may not be the best business solution. But locals here will prove you wrong.
They say there is nothing better than a shot of espresso after a meal – you know, to keep you going. Quick and strong. Just how Italians say espresso should be enjoyed. Well, here their offer is quite good. Over 20 types of espresso on the menu, the Italian brands on top, but equally good as the ones coming from abroad.
Name the country and they’ve got it. Brazil, Ethiopia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Jamaica and many more. I tried the Purissimo, and just as its name, it was bliss in a cup. Pure, intense taste, excellent smell and pure enjoyment.
The bar is quite small, offering a big bar to stand at and drink the espresso in less than a minute, cozy and friendly atmosphere, a bit further from the centre, but easily accessible, with kind of an at-home approach by the staff. If you can’t find a place there, head over to their two other locations in Skopje.
If you didn’t have enough, they sell all coffees packed and ready to brew in your homes and offices.
