SHOP OF THE WEEK
“Where plants meet coffee.”
WHAT WE LOVE: Joliu, Barcelona is “Where plants meet coffee”, the tagline for this specialty coffee, plant and magazine shop. Founded in 2015, this coffee shop is located in a former warehouse in the Pueblo Nuevo district of Barcelona. Original features such as the raw concrete floor and the patina of vintage walls create an inviting atmosphere. Crates are used for outdoor seating as well as displaying plants. The La Marzocco coffee machine makes delicious coffee drinks to pair with a delicious assortment of vegan treats. Plus an amazing range of magazines and periodicals make for a well-spent hour or two at Joliu Barcelona.
WHO: Lucía López, who is also the proprietor of sister Barcelona coffee shop, Orval.
WHERE: Carrer Badajoz 95, El Poblenou, Barcelona.
