Cirkusz is a modern café in the heart of Budapest, we offer a rich variety of dishes, including a weekly changing menu, all-day-breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Cirkusz we take pride in service and rapport with our customers and regulars; we have a passion for people, and enjoy getting to know them. On a daily basis we strive to consistently provide food, drink, and service at the highest level of quality. We boast popularity among the locals, but have the pleasure to serve guests and regulars from all continents. Coffee is the lifeblood of our team and an integral part of the Cirkusz culture. Coffee aficionados may recognize our equipment as world-class, our baristas prepare this black gold in a Probat roaster, grinded with a Vulcano, and finally brewed with our La Marzocco Strada. At Cirkusz, we manage to impress even the most sophisticated coffee critics, and regularly make caffeinated dreams come true. The key to that success are our baristas, as we are proud to house some of the best in Hungary. If our colleague, Edit, happens to be making your coffee you should know that she recently achieved third place at the Latte Art World Championship in Melbourne, Australia (2014). Finally, we at Cirkusz continuously share our expertise and passion in professional training provided at our Barista School.
Taking our coffee passion to the next level, in 2016, we decided to establish, our own, in-house coffee brand. Through trial and error, we have created a specialty blend that is lightly roasted and matches the high standards of our baristas and regulars. We source our beans from esteemed coffee plantations, and create specialty blends, well balanced for acid and alkali notes. Here at Cirkusz, we consider coffee beans a fruit, so we intend to preserve some of its inherently fruity and acidic flavors to be tasted in the cup for a smooth finish. It is also notable that we primarily use single-origin coffee beans, this allows us to present a vast tapestry of distinct flavors and characters. It also allows us to prepare a perpetually shifting coffee landscape, for the benefit of our regulars. Although not directly coffee related, we feel it’s important to note that a lot of our coffee creations also greatly benefit from our farm sourced milk. White like the driven snow; if you enjoy milk, you should not deny yourself the rich, frothy, goodness we have to offer.
