Every coffee lover knows the struggle of scouting for that perfect cup of coffee that’s both rich in flavor and not too bitter. Ask the coffee expert in your life (everyone’s got one) about their ideal cup of coffee and they’ll go on a monologue about brewing techniques, coffee machines, and coffee brands – it really is a very special type of science.

If you’re on the hunt for your next caffeine fix, consider passing by these tried-and-tested coffee spots!

1. Osana Family Wellness
Located in Maadi, Osana isn’t just known for yoga and wellness classes; its sunny café is perfect for getting work done with a great cup of coffee. Even if you prefer your coffee black, try their non-dairy milk alternatives for a creamy and unique taste.
