Today, countries all across the world are celebrating International Coffee Day and it would truly be a pity to let the day go by without drinking a coffee or two.

We have gathered a list of some of the must visit coffee shops in Malta and Gozo for you to go to on this special day.

These coffee shops are perfect for whenever you feel like a quiet chat with a friend or just need a bit of an energy booster before and after a long day.

1. Lot61, Valletta

Right in the heart of Malta’s capital city, there is not one single local who doesn’t love Lot61's coffees. You can even buy your own coffee blends to take home with you.

2. Jacob's Brew Café - Pay It Forward, Marsaskala

This café is run by Jacob, who in 2013 was in the ITU fighting for his life. Now, he dedicates a percentage of the revenue from his coffee shop to the NGO Survivors Malta. The NGO helps families who are facing large traumas.

Not only can you enjoy a nice cuppa but you can also help to pay it forward.

3. Tal-Ħwawar u Tal-Kafe', Valletta

Originally just a spice shop, this locally run expert coffee shop welcomes you with a strong smell of amazing spices, friendly service and a traditional Maltese setting.

4. MUMENTI - Espresso bar, Mosta

Enjoy all kinds and types of coffees while enjoying the impressive views of Mosta’s rotunda church. Bonus, they also serve some top notch cocktails.

5. COFFEE & strangers Espresso Bar, Sliema

This is Malta’s very first sensory experience espresso bar. They organise all kinds of coffee workshops and sell a huge variety of different coffee equipment. It can’t get more top-notch than this.

6. Loaf, Gzira

Located in the heart of Gzira, this coffee shop has a great variety of coffee that you can wash down with their signature croissants or their sourdough breads. Side note, they make a killer Chai Latte.

8. Finca Velez Coffee Shop, Sliema

Finca Velez is a truly unique coffee shop in Malta. It’s set in a Colombian inspired setting and they get their beans directly imported to them from selected farms in Colombia.

9. Milano Moka, Xewkija, Gozo

If you’re looking for a true cup of Italian coffee while in Gozo, look no further than Milano Mako. They make all their coffee in the Moka coffee machine which was designed by Alfonso Bialetti in 1933. It is truly a work of art. They also serve authentic Sicilian pastries and Italian curated meats and cheese.

10. Victoria Central, Victoria, Gozo

Located right before the steps of Citadel, this coffee shop is every coffee lover’s dream. Decorated in a variety of coffee inspired objects and prints, this spot is perfect for enjoying a cosy cup of coffee inside or you can even opt to enjoy it while taking in the view of Independence Square from their outdoor seating. They also roast their coffee in-store for guests to experience live.
