2021 Edition: Where to find the best coffee in Beirut

The coffee scene in Beirut has certainly grown over the years and became more sophisticated with the arrival of third wave coffee movement in the city. Unfortunately, some places did not survive the economic crisis, COVID-19 lockdowns, and the devastating port explosion; however, coffee aficionados have a lot of options. Here are some of my favorites by order of awesomeness:

1. Cortado, Gemmayze

2. Goldmonks, Gemmayze

3. The Backburner, Saifi Village

4. Cafe Younes, Hamra

5. Sip, Gemmayze

6. Kalei Coffee, Mar Mkhayel

7. Sift, Badaro
