Famous for its high quality espresso, roasted coffee beans and fancy (expensive) coffee machines, Espresso Store can be found in the middle of Frankfurt’s Kleinmarkthalle.
A shot costs €1,70. I’m not an espresso drinker as they are usually too strong for my liking. Very seldom do I need kicks like that to get me moving. Daniel said the shot he had was really strong and bold. It was just extremely bitter for me but I can understand why some people say it’s the best espresso in town. It does give you the kick.
I ordered latte macchiato shake with choco cookie syrup. Unfortunately the lady probably didn’t hear me very well and got me an ordinary latte macchiato shake instead (costs €3). Nonetheless, it was a good drink. If I choose to drink coffee, I like the beans to be strong and dark. What’s worst than diluted coffee?
Do not expect to find seats at this café-bar. You’ll either be standing by a tall table or the bar itself sipping your coffee away. As it gets really crowded, it’s also not the place to hang out and chit-chat. Chances are the person behind you wants you to move on so that they can get a quick drink too. We knew this would be the case and wasn’t looking for a café to chill out anyway. Hence, it worked out pretty well for us.
