Kaffetur 17 / Coffee Tour #17: Fábrica Coffee Roasters

It’s always nice when we can work a quick vacation around a business trip – and particularly when it’s to a place we’ve never visited before. Our recent trip to Portugal started with a couple of days in Lisbon, visiting friends and checking out a really cool city.And of course checking out a really cool coffee shop!

Fábrica Coffee Roasters is a newbie. Our barista told us they opened about two months ago.

But with high quality locally roasted coffee, a menu that includes great drinks and a nice selection of food, and an atmosphere that makes you want to sit and relax, we feel it’s safe to say Fábrica has the potential to become a favorite for locals and tourists alike.

The boys had an ice coffee. It was as delicious as it was cute.

Zack and I tried an affogato (espresso shot and ice cream – wow!!) and a V60, as well as an espresso.

From the staff, to the drinks, to the presentation: everything was fantastic. Located just a block behind Hard Rock, the location is close to all the action, yet one street makes a big difference in setting up a quieter and less touristy locale.

Most of Lisbon’s cafes seemed quite similar to each other. But Fábrica has created a place and space all its own. It’s a must if you find yourself in Lisbon.

Have you heard about Tastemade?

We are excited to announce that we are participating in a fairly new site, Tastemade.


Tastemade is a video community created to “connect the world through food.” (https://m.facebook.com/tastemade/about)
We think it is a great way to check out the best of a city’s eats before a trip. And we also saw it as a great way to share what we discover around Norway.
