Reykjavík on CNN’s List of ‘Great Coffee Cities’

By Iceland Review

Reykjavik is among eight cities on CNN’s list of ‘Great Coffee Cities’ published earlier this week.

“Not too long ago, cafés in Reykjavík were more about the food,” national barista champion Kristín Þóra Jökulsdóttir told CNN. “You’d have coffee and cake and didn’t mind how the coffee was as long as the cake was good. Then, about 25 years ago, people started to care about how their coffee was served.”

The other cities to make the list are Melbourne, Rome, Singapore, Vienna, London, Wellington and Seattle.
