You don’t need to be sent centuries back in time to track down an authentic cup of coffee. You can simply go for a stroll next to the Ljubljanica, accompanied by the melodic sound of the wind rustling the leaves of the majestic trees proudly lining its banks, and stop at Mala Pražarna.
This unpretentious roastery, living up to the pearl of wisdom “less is more,” is where you want to be for a fair cupful of caffeinated bliss. Whether you drink it on the spot, in a cup produced from recycled coffee grounds, or take it to-go to continue your stroll next to the river is entirely up to you. Nevertheless, in this quaint roastery, you will be greeted by an authentic, kind & humble soul named Sabin. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of coffee and somehow reminds me of his Royal Highness, Keanu Reeves. Is it his smile, or his humble presence? I still haven’t figured that one out.
All that remains for you to know is that he roasts his own coffee beans, Cuban if I am not mistaken, on the spot. Hence, your coffee will be as fresh as it possibly can be and sold at a fair price, served with an air of kindness. You can also buy a pack of locally roasted coffee beans as a souvenir and take it home with you, getting an extended holiday for yourself that will help you shake the weight of living and reminisce about dazzling Ljubljana.
