Healthy food that tastes delicious and authentic is at the heart of our Café. Just like a good speciality coffee, which is respectfully cultivated and harvested as well as gently roasted and brewed by hand with a lot of love.
We are a family, a team, inspired by the beauty of natural ingredients and the excellent quality of our regional products. Therefore we do our best to serve you with homemade seasonal creations and to keep our ecological footprint as small as possible.
Even though our home towns are more than 6,500 km apart and we are shaped by different cultures and educational paths, we share a common vision:
The Café as a piece of home. A cosy place where you can enjoy tasty food and excellent coffee with a sense of global and personal responsibility. A place to fall in love and be happy. The Special Connection.

What does Specialty Coffee mean?
The term Specialty Coffee describes a respectful, individual approach to the coffee bean from cultivation to the preparation of a coffee drink. It presupposes the highest bean quality (over 80 points) and strict standards with regard to harvesting, processing and roasting. This coffee is usually purchased in small quantities directly from farmers and traded under fair conditions.
Various organisations and associations such as the Specialty Coffee Association, ICO and Cup of Excellence are committed to the highest quality and permanent development of coffee culture at the international level.
In addition, annual world championships such as World of Coffee and WCE competitions offer experienced baristis the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and perfect their skills. Specialty Coffee inspires and connects thousands of people around the world: it is a common language, shared passion and endless curiosity.
Our path to Specialty Coffee
Our first cup of Specialty Coffee at Hidden Coffee Roasters in Barcelona was love at first sight! We will remember these aromas and wonderful taste development forever. Thus, we want to create this unforgettable experience also for guests in our café. However, Specialty Coffee is not only a pleasure, it is a science in itself. We are ready to take on this exciting journey and learn something new every day together with you!
