The Barn Roastery

May 12, 2019

The second coffee shop to open after what is now known as Little Barn. A wharehouse roaastery with associated coffee shop.

I was there Sunday afternoon. No coffee roasting on a Sunday. Had I been there earlier, there was coffee cupping in the morning.

I did not a have a coffee as earlier at The Barn Hackescher Markt, the fourth and latest to open, and wished to try coffee somewhere other than The Barn and maybe return later.

Larger than their other coffee shops, with more on offer, inclding Standart and The World Atlas of Coffee.

Latest copy of Standart which I had only seen in Berlin.

Röststätte

Hidden within the same network of courtyards as Ben Rahim.

Roast their own coffee.

I was somewhat disappointed with my cappuccino.

Ben Rahim

May 12, 2019

Ben Rahim named after the Tunisian owner.

Not easy to find, hidden within a network of courtyards.

Coffee from Square Mile.

I tried a cappuccino with Red Brick.

Disappointment compared with the quality in England.

Also tried a V60.

I was originally going to have a V60 but was curious how Red Brick would compare with the best in England, settled on a cappuccino.

The owner Ben Rahim was not there. Had he been, maybe I would have written a different account. A pity he was not there, as from what I saw, a man who takes his coffee seriously.

Five Elephant Mitte

A lovely little coffee shop, coffee and cakes, light steaming in through the rear window.

Excellent cappuccino.

A good range of single origin coffee on sale, all the more surprising therefore no pour over on offer to try the coffee.

Located Mitte, a few minutes walk from Rosa Luxemburg Platz.

Soho Coffee House Berlin

May 10, 2019

It is not every coffee shop walk in and find a Damien Hirst on the wall.

What is next noticed is the vast open space various stalls. Clothes, music, books, and coffee and food.

Coffee was excellent, as was the food.

I had my eye on a cake, but had gone when I tried again.

The magazines on offer, some interesting, too many glossy trash. I suggested a few titles they may wish to stock, Standart, Drift, On Nom, Caboodle.
