Despite the fact that it’s newly opened, this place has already gotten my attention. Firstly, because it is the place where you can come for a cup of great coffee and secondly it is one of three or four places in the city where you can drink quality coffee prepared by the highest standards.
When I talk about coffee, I do it from two perspectives – coffee and coffee machine. At 42 Coffee Co. Coffee is absolutely fantastic. It is Arabica blend which they serve in cooperation with Cogito Coffee, one of the few Croatian coffee roasters. At first the taste it is a bit savory, but it turns into something divine with an aftertaste that can last literally for hours (if you don’t take a chewing gum :)). The other thing is the high end La Marzocco coffee machine, the only of its kind in the whole Balkan region. When you add a professional barista to this equation, the result is a perfect coffee drinking experience. Besides coffee, you can also enjoy different kinds of tea and, since it’s next to Hole in One Pub, beers like drought Erdinger.
The interior was designed by the owner, Kristijan Krasnić, and what I was especially impressed by is this big, industrial looking table that dominates the space. As I found out, the idea is to make it a sort of “community table” at which you can sit and enjoy coffee or tea with people you know or don’t know. And I will! 🙂
