Black Remedy

Deli & Coffee Concept Store

By Brian Gallagher 28.12.16

Barcelona’s coffee culture may not be as varied or advanced as other world cities but it’s catching up. This new Deli & Coffee Concept Store is another addition to the burgeoning local love affair with coffee in all its variations. Located in the Gothic area in a space that was previously occupied by the Magnolia restaurant Black Remedy is defined by its high ceilings and large glass windows overlooking the street outside just a stone’s throw from the emblematic Plaça Sant Jaume.

Architect and interior designer Jordi López together with art restorer and designer Marcelo Abrigador (founder of Lab-Art) created the project which combines period details such as the polychromatic details of the vaulted ceiling with a modern and open-plan concept. The inspiration is provided by the old cafés of the late 19th and early 20th Century when coffee first became popular. The furniture and fittings are made to measure, a mixture of loose tubular metal tables and chairs with built-in surfaces. The finishes include solid timber, ceramic tiles, marble and brass tables as well as smoked mirrors and neon-lighting details.

    The owners of Black Remedy, the Ascaso family, have combined the coffee with a gastronomic offering based on menu of healthy and nutritional dishes. The Ascaso family are the owners of the Compak Coffee Grinders, professional grade coffee grinders that are sold internationally in more than 70 countries around the world. So they know what they are doing when it comes to making addictive coffee.
