OR Espresso Bar
Rue A. Ortsstraat 9, 1000 Brussel, Belgium
OR's central Brussels coffee shop is beautifully rustic inside; original bricks meet more recent plaster and it's a feat to take it all in as you scrape along the raw concrete floor to the back of the café to reach the bar. OR have taken Belgium by storm and have a second Brussels shop in Etterbeek then some others dotted around the country.
There's a clear enthusiasm and apparent great care going into the offering of the coffee and then the making it. There's a range (3 at the time) of filter options, and you can have your espresso crafted with the house blend or a single origin guest - a Burundi for our visit, which matched the tasting notes impressively. There are thoughtful touches throughout the experience (they call out the free refills for specialty teas) and plenty of different seating options to keep the laptopeer happy as well as a group catching up.
This is a wildly central location in Brussels and you'll hear a broad range of accents and languages as you enjoy a coffee.
