There’s a brand new coffee shop in City Walk, ready to give respite to tired shoppers.
Russian-founded chain Double B has now opened up in the area, serving up teas, coffees and snacks.
The coffee shop chain, which has branches in Prague, Moscow and Barcelona launched in Dubai late last year. It’s the first Middle Eastern branch for Double B, which now has more than 80 branches globally.
Double B is the first outlet in Dubai to serve the famous Russian coffee drink the Raf. The Raf started as espresso, cream and sugar steamed together, a concoction that has since been adapted by all speciality Russian coffee shops.
Double B’s signature is the Lavender Raf, a light creamy mix of freshly brewed espresso with a hint of lavender. Other options include wild rose cappuccino, cherry-chocolate latte and a salted peanut latte. The menu changes every six months.
As well as a range of coffees, the shop also serves teas and almond and coconut milk-based drinks, too.
Double B was set up in 2012 by Anna Tsfasman, who aims to make “high quality coffee sourced from the best plantations and roasted to perfection”. The coffee shop serves a diverse variety of coffee from all around the world.
“At Double B, we are dedicated to serving the highest quality coffee and we are thrilled to finally share our passion and unique flavours with the gourmands and coffee lovers of Dubai,” says Tsfasman.
The coffee shop has won the Russian coffee brewing championships multiple times and is currently vice champion of the world in coffee roasting, and has two full-scale roasting facilities in Moscow and Prague.
We know where we’ll be heading next time we need a coffee break.
