Kaldi Antwerp

There is a new bar in town.
Finally some movement on the espresso bar front. One week after the opening of 'Vandaag is't' (a review soon) we celebrate another one in the city of Antwerp.
Kaldi is a Dutch chain of espresso bars, specialised in coffee and tea. Not only you have the possibility of drinking these liquids, you can also buy them, plus, and finally for Antwerp, they do sell some quality home espresso machines.

After presenting myself to the very friendly bar owner i tried an espresso. Yes, they do have a Kees Van der Westen Van Mirage - 2-group, linked with a Mahlkonig K30 - La Potenza labeled. Very fine combination indeed.
Beans : Barista blend.
Taste : Hot. So hot i burned my tongue. Nevertheless i tasted some great potential. Not too strong, little bit of spices, sweet and clean finish.
Next time a 3cl espresso to bring out the spices and body and the right temperature and we have a winner.
Good luck with this courageous project. Vleminckstraat, opposite Dille and Kamille.
