5 workplace coffee shops in Madrid: get to work at the coffice

There are now more than a few people – employees and employers – who are joining in on working from home, a practice that allows you to organize yourself however you want and… wherever you want. As a consequence of the crisis, this new way of working has spread, especially among younger people, who are trying to find a place in the world of work as freelance.
