Finding good coffee in Doha can be pretty challenging. It. Is. Not. Dubai.
If I had a Riyal (Doha’s currency) for every time someone told me “Doha is not Dubai”, I would easily have ten thousand riyals extra in my bank. I can’t say millionaire because I don’t know a million people obviously 🙂
Doha has changed dramatically during the last 10 years; including the coffee chains.
As a coffee addict, I have found 5 places in Doha that make the best coffee! (Starbucks is NOT included).
- Tim Hortons
They have the best iced coffee ever! How do I know? Well, I have this bad habit, I never finish my coffee. I keep drinking till I feel the kick then stop. However, with Tim’s (yeah that’s my nickname for it), I can go all the way to the bottom. Secret? Never with whipped cream and with an extra shot of espresso. Even their food is really good but that’s for another time.
- Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
I always like to test out different drinks at a coffee shop. But with CBTL, it was never the case. Black Forest & always Black Forest. What’s so special about it is the real coffee beans blended with real pieces of cherry. Fruity and strong. It never needs an extra shot. Well, sometimes.
Their cold drinks can be very sweet which is perfect for those days when you’re craving sugar. I can really vouch for their Berry White Mocha with extra shot no cream. Really Really good.
