Deloubak Espresso Cuisine Co
A new and absolutely beautiful place opened in Paphos last year, right there at the market as you follow the smell of coffee and find yourself in front of Deloubak Espresso Cuisine Co. This is where coffee takes centre stage. Imported coffee beans from plantations in Indonesia, Honduras, Guatemala and Bolivia are freshly grinded here, each time and for each order.
This is an incredible place with an industrial-chic look inside a revitalised building from the 1940’s. You can claim your resting spot in one of the comfy chairs and enjoy one of many coffee blends while listening to lounge music, mainly jazz and blues. The list is endless, including espresso, cappuccino, Americano, caramel macchiato and iced roasted hazelnut latte.
You will also find milkshakes and smoothies made with yogurt or fresh orange juice. You can also have a few bites, such as mini cheese pies, French pastries, sandwiches, muffins and American cookies. Before you leave you can stock up on accessories, such as hot ciders for your Cypriot coffee and specialty coffee filters. Open daily from 7am until 11pm (until midnight Friday and Saturday).
