United Coffee in Almaty, Kazakhstan. The capital city of Almaty is filled with dozens of adorable coffee shops and cafes that serve as the backbone of the city’s cultural scene. Come evening in Almaty during the warmer months, you’ll find nearly the entire city on a cafe patio sipping coffee, eating, and smoking hookah. It seems that coffee is the lifeblood of Almaty.
And, while Almaty has perhaps hundreds of coffee shops to choose from, for a guaranteed cup of quality Joe, head over to United Coffee on Kurmangazy 61. You’ll find a stylish but cozy modern interior, adorned with potted plants, interesting artwork, and mismatched but comfortable furniture. It’s perfect for holing up over a cup of your favorite brew during Kazakhstan’s notorious winters. Or if you visit Almaty during the summer months, you might opt to perch yourself on the adorable outdoor patio, where you can whittle away the afternoon watching Almaty’s many socialites stroll through this trending part of town.
If you are hungry, United Coffee has you covered with a full menu for all three meals (it’s open a whopping sixteen hours per day). For breakfast, I suggest trying the sumptuous chocolate pancakes – it is a decadent way to start out your day. For lunch or dinner, a number of creative croissant sandwiches are a solid option. And, no matter your meal, you should, of course, ask for your favorite coffee drink.
United Coffee’s baristas arguably serve up the be coffee in a city that takes its coffee very seriously, with the selection (and latte art) to prove it. But if coffee just isn’t your thing that day, you can also request a refreshing lemonade or a variety of local teas. Whatever you order, you’re sure to enjoy United Coffee.
