El Café de Axel is the only specialty coffee shop in the city of Benidorm, Spain. This city is iconic for its white sand beaches, unique skyscrapers, and the booming party scene. This gem is a little far away from all the tourist spots and is a little tricky to find if you’re new in the area but when you do figure out the way the reward is well worth it.
They are a multi-roaster concept and it’s always exciting to drop by this cafe because they are constantly changing up the beans in their hoppers as well as their retail area. We got to try a hand-brewed single origin Ethiopia coffee that was roasted by Valladolid’s Puchero– the coffee had notes of lime, pomelo and, black tea. The coffee was brewed with a V60 and we got a good conversation going with the barista who was very informative and friendly. Stopping by El Café de Axel is a must for us in this party city, it’s a great treat after a night out or to escape the crowded city center.
