This spot is a great place for coffee lovers. Here, Russian sweet “Raf coffee” isn’t made with artificial syrups and other pre-prepared ingredients like everywhere else.
It takes time to make real “Raf,” and it’s worth waiting for. People told Coffelosophy’s owners that time would pass and they would switch to simple syrups. Time did pass. But they didn’t shift to an easier life.
The baristas at Coffelosophy take part in coffee championships (and get extra money from the employer if they come home with prizes).
There are several universities around, so some students drop by to get fresh coffee. Personally, I like to walk here from Sennaya subway station by the Griboedov channel and then get my coffee prize: slowly and passionately.
There are some snacks, too, but this coffee workshop is primarily dedicated to the magic of preparing drinks. I’d recommend you getting your lunch before coming here.
