Where to have specialty coffee in Kazan

Neft
(Oil)

Neft means oil, oil is black, and so is coffee. Or is it because oil is the fuel for machines, just as coffee is the fuel for humans? Whatever it is, the coffee at this Kazan chain is DA BOMB! They roast most of the beans themselves and sometimes use exotic varieties from the Moscow roaster Perfectionista. V60, Australian lungo, Chemex, Aeroexpress, Cold-brew – whichever way you want it made, you will be able to get it here. All black coffee is under $2 on Mondays, and on Wednesdays, all speialty coffee drinks will cost you just ≈$3.
