Berlin has many great cafés, with just a handful serving truly great coffee and some tasty brews. Since April 2014, this café offers freshly roasted coffee from all over the world. In order to promote a good digestibility and to give each coffee the time it needs, they roast gently and slowly with a drum roasting process. Through a lighter roasting they maintain and underline the character of a coffee and at the same time look for the right balance of acidity and sweetness. Kaffeekirsche, Berlin, owes complex aroma profiles in a coffee solely to the good work of the farmers. With them you will find coffees that tell the chain of value creation, from the farmer to the cup.
