Gijtipong "Gap" Thangsubutr is a coffee expert and barista with heart and soul. In his shop he offers about 100 different coffee beans. If you want to learn how to prepare them in the best possible way, either take a close look - the shop offers the perfect view over the baristas' shoulders - or attend one of the training courses offered. Either way, a visit to Gap, the two-time Swiss champion in latte art, is well worth it!
As soon as you enter, you will notice that YanaCocha works with love and attention to detail. The interior, designed out of antique objects, the manually operated piston coffee machine, the selected coffee beans and the outdoor sports store attached to the café - everything carries the signature of the two owners Daniela Holdener and Mario Stanco. With YanaCocha they have created a real meeting space at Theaterplatz.
In the Vordere Metzggasse you can find it, the real Italian "Caffè"! Gianni Gravina serves espresso, cappuccino, latte macchiato and caffè coretto the way you only know it from your vacations in Italy. And all of this in the middle of Baden... During the summer, we especially recommend a Caffè Spuntino, which will be served cold.
The coffee at ohne.ch is Demeter-certified and originates from the roasting plant Henauer in Höri (ZH). For 90 years the roastery has been sourcing its beans from the Finca Irlanda in Mexico. There the coffee beans are slowly ripening under shade trees and thus develop their unique aroma. Cultivation, care and harvesting are done by hand. At ohne.ch you can find the excellent tasting coffee in many different variations. One of them is the "Lavender Latte" containing homemade organic lavender syrup, an espresso shot and organic milk or vegan organic alternative milk.
In New Zealand Earl-Jae Tanoa grew up with a highly modern coffee culture. He has now literally brought this culture straight to the Limmat: Together with his wife Fabienne, he runs the outdoor location Kajüte from April to September. Their coffee: The "Bio Brasil" from Stoll, an Arabica blend with a light roast and a nutty chocolaty note. In the Kajüte it is processed into espresso, flat white or a refreshing ice coffee. A summer dream!
Frau Meise's fine coffee is accompanied by all kinds of sweet (and salty) treats. The cosy café in the Halde is a popular place for brunch and coffee gatherings. The in-house coffee creations such as the "shaken titmouse" and the "titmouse coffee" are highly recommended.
Moser’s at Schlossbergplatz is the meeting place of the city. The coffee brewed here is made by Kaffee Graf from Dättwil. Thanks to the short distance from the roasting plant to the coffee machine in Moser's, it is always fresh. It is best enjoyed with Café Crème, Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato and the local specialty "Badener Stein", a chocolate confectionery, on the side.
An insider tip among Baden coffee lovers: The Museum Café in the Historical Museum of Baden. Located directly on the Limmat and with a view of Baden's historic old town, coffee creations made from Arabica and Robusta beans can be enjoyed in peace - even without a visit to the museum. It's especially nice during summer, sitting outside on the terrace and watching the river passing by.
The house coffee at the Biolade Bade is made by Original Food. At the core of the company's efforts are projects which enable people to use their own natural resources as a basis for their existence and to preserve them permanently. Do something good with your own coffee experience - it's that simple!
