We were walking down the alleyways of the old town and came across this museum. There is no fee so you just walk in and wander around. Those who appeared to be working did not care who walked in. A woman was preparing some coffee...More

If you are looking for a cramped undersized, hard to find museum then this is the place for you. Moreover, the lack of someone to greet you and lack of hospitality make this place ideal for you to feel unwelcomed. To make things better if...More

There’s a lot of displays that talks about coffee. From the different beans, machines, and preprations. There’s a lot to learn here, but you just have to be really interested as there’s nobody to tour you in.

The neighborhood this is in is wonderful for exploring. I would live in this museum if it were possible. The building is cozy, the information - wonderful and the cuteness level is off the charts. Good information, and the staff were so informative.

This is a great museum. It's not that's big, so it don't take much time. You can see and read the history of coffee. Upstairs they have a coffee bar, where they make coffee on different ways. Lovely to see and drink!
