My favorite cafe in Madrid. The coffee was strong, the size large and the space fabulous.
La Colectiva has a nice roomy area in the front of their long space, with the bar taking up half of the back. Tables with a bench and cushions are on one wall, while tall tables and stools line the other. Venture downstairs to a magical living room-like space where you could spend hours sipping and working and chatting and enjoying yourself with another coffee.
The coffee menu here was more third wave, with V60, cold press and similar possibilities available. I had my usual and it did not disappoint. They also put an emphasis on their food, with lunch and vegan cakes a few of the options. La Colectiva gets kicks for space, workability, vibe and coffee.
