High quality coffee is not a given in Tbilisi. There is a bean supply issue that results in bitter, burnt or stale-tasting coffee throughout the city. There are exceptions of course, but in general, I find coffee in this city to be a big disappointment. As Tbilisi undergoes a transformation with new businesses and investment, it is inevitable that better coffee will be available.
Skola Coffee & Wine Bar has been open since December 2017. It is a special venue with a purpose. Not only do they serve fantastic coffee from specialty roasters Camera Obscura, they have a gorgeous space that is for the community. They will be offering their space for lectures & public talks, screenings, concerts, theater performances, workshops, design & book markets, and they have a community program to help young people have job training and therefore become more employable.
The coffee is truly the best in Tbilisi, and I love that they offer vegan milk options, and not just tired soy. They also include almond milk and oat milk. This is a great addition to the cafe scene in Tbilisi, and it will be exciting to watch them grow in the community.
