Recently moved to Brussels and I really miss some good strong coffee, nicely roasted and brewed, but so far I couldn't find the perfect place.
I would really appreciate few suggestions before exploring the entire city :)
Thanks!

Hi Iona, you alrady have two recomandations that are good. There is also Mokafe in the Royal Galleries and Starbucks Café in the Grand'Place. Cheers, Marc

Thanks Marc! I am not a Starbucks fan, that's why I was looking for more authentic places, more concerned with quality rather than making money :) But Mokafe looks like a very authentic place, so I will really like to check it out

My favourite place for a coffee fix in Brussels is Corica. They have a wide range of beans (even some kopi luwak, which I didn't have the courage to try). So far, I've tried one of their Brazilian blends, a Colombian blend, and my favourite, an Ethiopian one. I'm more of a double espresso/ristretto type of person, but my wife tried one of their lattes and absolutely loved it. My espressos had a nice and thick crema and baristas were friendly. You can also buy coffee beans (ground or whole) from their assortment of coffees. The only thing to notice is that they are a coffee-on-the-go type of place. There are no tables or sofas inside the shop, so not the best place to bring your laptop and try to get some work done.

You definitely made me curious! Thanks Henrique, I can't wait to try some of their sortiments. And if I will have the courage to try kopi lowak, I will get back to you with feedback :)

Several places with good illy coffee. For example on the corner of place Roger next to the Sheraton. Good but expensive. Also the sandwich bar "Up," next to the European Commission Covent Garden building also in place. Rogier. Also has good coffee in a paper cup. But much cheaper.
