Would suggest anyone interested to give a good cup of Rwandan or Peruvian filter coffee a go, if this concept is new to you.
A good cup of single origin (Ethiopian) drip coffee is an amazing thing. I have a good friend who has access to beans most can only dream of, and he roasts them himself for use on our camping trips.

Re: Where can I buy a good cup of filter coffee

I was recently at Mame, interestingly enough. Decent espresso and noticed they also do the pour over filter coffee ala Blue Bottle back in the US

What I remember most though was a cookie with a diameter of 5cm for 3 CHF

Re: Where can I buy a good cup of filter coffee

MAME has world-class coffee. I’ve been to some of the best coffee shops in the US, where 3rd wave coffee is a decade ahead of Switzerland, and MAME is solid in comparison. And the baristas there have won several competitions as well. They have a second shop now near the Opera House and are now roasting their own beans.

I also like Boreal. They are also 3rd wave and roast their own beans. I’ve even mail-ordered them on occasion. Their location in central Zürich is pretty accessible.

Those are my top two coffee shops in the Zürich area.

If you aren’t familiar with 3rd wave, check out the article on Wikipedia: (cohttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_wave_of_coffee

I've been here so long that I can't tell whether you thought that was a bargain or a total rip-off.

I’ve been to COFFEE once. If I remember, it was pretty good. I think it’s a little out of the way from where I usually go is all.

Never been to Vicafe. Will have to check it out - thanks for putting it on my radar. The latte art in the photos looks legit at least. 😉

Re: Where can I buy a good cup of filter coffee

I really like MAME (2 locations in Zurich) and Just coffee (only take-away), they both have dripper/filter/Chemex, probably there is more, you can search "third wave coffee". MAME also sells coffee beans you can use to for Chemex/Dripper, The variety is good and I love all of them.

Btw when I read first responses in this thread I cringed so much, so rude. Also I see someone haven't tried a good cup of filter coffee.

Re: Where can I buy a good cup of filter coffee

My vote is for plunger coffee.
Quick, easy, you can leave the water on the grounds as long as you prefer and you have the advantage that when you do pay Swiss prices for a coffee outside you are not getting something you can do better at home
