Working while traveling is not always great. Especially when you are in a place with so much to see, eat and do. The good news is the amazing Barcelona digital nomad and coworking scene makes it a lot easier and more fun.
This place serves some seriously great coffee. They use all micro-roasters and local ingredients and the pride they take in their coffee and food really shines through. The prices are decent and the food is really great. I got the 15 hour smoked pork sandwich and liked it a lot (Georgia boys know good BBQ)! When you have had all of the coffee you can handle they also offer cold-pressed juices and even beer if you need to celebrate a job well done. There are plenty of sockets and strong wifi but the big downside of this joint is the 2-hour wifi maximum (after which you have to stay off for two hours). Even if you are buying stuff you cannot extend the 2-hour maximum. The good news is it is located in the Gothic Quarter so there are plenty of other options if you want to keep your Barcelona digital nomad bender going.
After getting bumped off of the wifi at Black Remedy we stumbled upon Federal Cafe. This is another great option for the Barcelona coworking crowd. We sat at a larger table in the middle so we did not have immediate access to a plug but there were some near the tables on the outside. The wifi was good and the prices were reasonable. I ended up getting a Kombucha so I cannot speak to the coffee but it looked good. They also have a great selection of sweet treats to keep you energized.
Aside from Coffice being my new favorite word, this place has a lot to offer. It is much more of a coworking space than coffee shop but it is run by the nicest people and it has everything you could want. We let them know we were coming ahead of time and I am glad we did as the space is rather small. There is a conference room you can rent for $1 more if you need to make calls or have meetings. I can attest to the fact that they did some great soundproofing in that place as Rachel recorded a podcast in the conference room and I could not hear her in the office. And she is a very, very, loud phone talker! The first hour is €4 and then it is €3 every hour after that. They had coffee, tea, and some basic office food included in that price. If you plan to spend all day there the cost is €15.
Although Rachel had to basically drag me away from the Barcelona beaches I am super glad she did. We were able to get a lot of work done in these great Barcelona digital nomad and coworking spaces. If you have any other favorite places to work in Barcelona please leave them in the comments!
