For The Love Of Cof­fee

Where Berlin - - DINING -

From cul­ti­va­tion to roast­ing to grind­ing to brew­ing, mak­ing a truly phe­nom­e­nal cup of cof­fee is no sim­ple task. At The Barn, one of Ber­lin’s greats when it comes to a topqual­ity caf­feine hit, a purist, un­com­pro­mis­ing ap­proach to cof­fee en­sures that even the most hard­core fans won’t be dis­ap­pointed. Opened in 2010, The Barn’s orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion is a snug café on Mitte’s Kop­pen­platz, and in late 2012 they added a large, airy roast­ery on Schön­hauser Allee. Re­gard­less of which lo­ca­tion you end up at, both serve the same ex­cel­lent cof­fee and se­lec­tion of de­li­cious, rus­tic sand­wiches and baked treats. Espresso-based drinks are made with high- qual­ity bio­dy­namic milk, frothed to vel­vety per­fec­tion by the well-trained barista staff. Just as some restau­rants have been known to refuse to cook a steak un­til it’s well done, The Barn serves its hand-brewed fil­ter cof­fees black so that cus­tomers can fully sa­vor the rich, dark depths of ev­ery sip. If the cof­fee you’ve been served else­where in the city tastes familiar, there’s a good rea­son why: the ex­pert roasts pro­duced at The Barn’s Schön­hauser Allee roast­ery are also car­ried by fine cafés and restau­rants across Ber­lin. Au­gust­str. 58 and Schön­hauser Allee 8. www.the­barn.de
