Departure Coffee Co mixes specialty coffee & art in Barcelona’s most multicultural neighbourhood Raval.
Specialty coffee has been in the hot air for a quiet a while now, some cafés starts small develops in to roasters. Some grow and opens more cafés, others doesn’t last longer then we learnt to say specialty coffee.
And of course new kids pop up on the specialty coffee map of Barcelona!
In the beginning of June Departure Coffee Co opened their doors to their family friendly speciality coffee shop on the tranquil street de la Verge 1, in Raval.
The owners Xavi and Raquel, met working at a pharmaceutical company and decided on embarking on a new and very distinct path together. Miles from working in a lab to working with specialty coffee.
At Departures Coffee Co they work with coffee roasted by local roasters Slowmov. With the owners of Slowmov, Carme and François, they also realised courses and training in the art of specialty coffee.
The day I Departure Coffee Co visited they had one coffee grinder, however in a near future they will add one more, to be able to offer different styles of roasts. They also have filter coffee and Aeropress.

The locale is more then a coffee shop. Raquel and Xavi, wants the space to be dynamic and a live for clients of all ages. As the space is fairly big they decided that to combine art and coffee. On the walls we can find local artist exhibiting his or her art, the expo changes monthly. For the inauguration of each expo they will have a a Dj or live music to enhance the wibe.
The shop of Departure Coffee Co is located in a old factory that used to make wooden doors.To restore and update the locale of Departure Coffee Co, Raquel and Xavi had help from architecture and interior design office MADE. You can find the antique foaming press in the middle of the room that used to press 10 doors at a time, now serving as a beautiful table.
