Prague Culture Shock - Coffee

A 12-part guide to the subtle - and not-so-subtle - nuances that make the Czech capital a more memorable experience

It's hard to find a regular cup o' Joe in Prague, with many American-style cafés serving over-priced and fairly weak coffee.



Ten years ago, Nescafé was the height of sophistication, but Praguers now mainly drink espresso-based coffee. Cappuccinos and lattes are usually quite good, thanks to a strong Italian influence.



Compared to the likes of Starbucks - a franchise that thankfully hasn't arrived here yet - coffee is also relatively cheap. (If you do crave Starbucks, try Coffee Heaven (Na příkopě 3, Prague 1) or Fuzion.)



Another bonus is that most places will give you hot milk to add to your espresso - something that American cafés should certainly emulate.
