THROUGH MY LENS: WESOLA CAFE, KRAKOW by Peter Sladen

A KAMILA COFFEE REVIEW

It was 29 degrees Celsius in the shade and two of my friends and I were wondering around the streets of Krakow looking for a cool coffee spot to relax in. We had heard about a coffee shop on Rakowicka street called “Wesoła Cafe” and decided we would try it out. The shop had a really good vibe.

As barista Adam walked us through their many coffee choices, my eyes began to wander around the place. The shelves were stacked with coffee from
Hard Beans coffee roasters, a roaster I had never tried before. I was excited!

I started with a single origin espresso, it had the most amazing citrusy body – I already wanted more. I followed the espresso with a Kenyan “Mithuti” filter which had a beautiful red colour with tasting notes of blackcurrant and berries. I then sampled a second filter coffee called “La Loma” from Costa Rica. This filter was very different and had herbal and floral tasting notes.

All the coffees at
Wesoła Cafe were incredible. Wesoła means happy in Polish and we were very content for the rest of that day.
