26 is a cozy coffee house near the Minsk railway station. It’s an example of the kind of place probably made with a low amount of money just by a couple of friends who are really fond of coffee and probably like to travel mostly to cities like Kyiv and Lviv.
It’s the kind of place where you don’t expect expensive furniture or interior design. From what it looks like, they have a lot of things made by just the baristas and the owners’ friends who have their own brands of things like for example the cups and kitchen stuff. All the coffee is also by local roasters. I can tell you that most of the good things in Minsk work like this.
They mostly specialize in alternative brewing. As always, I suggest you have a cup of Chemex, but all of the other brewing methods are also made well here.
Also, you can chat with the barista about coffee a little bit. They like that :).
