Best Latte in Sevilla (Sevilla)

Image
Spain in general has good coffee but for those who are looking for great flat whites or latte with great simple latte art, you might be slightly disappointed as there are not a lot of them.  Spanish just usually order cafe solo (black) or cafe con leche (with milk). Fortunately found a couple of good cafes and this are in order of preference 1. Virgin coffee Address: Calle Regina, 1, 41003 Sevilla  Website: virgincoffeesevilla.com Small but great cafe. The owner, Pedro, is also the barista and cheaper than the other cafes I have tried since a latte costs 1.50 or 2.0 depending on size.  Drinking the latte, I can taste the strong bitter coffee but not overpowering, just enough blend with milk. Also note, since he is the only one here... he might close the shop every now and then. Pedro and his latte creations 2.

TRANSPORTATION Airport: PMI (Palma, Majorca) Airport to City Centre: Bus 1 Just outside the airport and costing only 3 Euros Get off at Plaza Espanya in Palma to get off the central train and bus stations Every 15 minutes on weekdays, and around 30 minutes on holidays and Sundays. Palma to Santa Ponsa Bus 102 , 104, 111 At the Bus station in Plaza Espanya (just beside the trains), costing 3.40 Euros and get off a Plaza Ponsa 104 is slower, takes an hour, so you might just want to take 111 and 102.
