Did you notice a more jittery general public over the last few days? Last week the first ever Berlin Coffee Festival took place: here are some impressions from the market which was held at Markthalle Neun on Sunday. Lots of Berlin’s favourite coffee folk were there – Blaue Bohnen, Five Elephant, The Barn, Bonanza Coffee. There was also something different on offer: my highlights were the Prana Chai tea, and the “Coffee IPA”, a collabeeration (sorrynotsorry) between the Barn and Heidenpeters Brewery.
After paying the 5 Euro entry fee, you could have a taster at any, if not all, of the stands. Much coffee. Much much coffee. Slices of Five Elephant cheesecake were flying out the door, as well as Oma Marnie’s Pies.
