berlin review – THE BARN

We’ve scoured Berlin Mitte and against all odds of finding just another coffeehouse serving burned coffee, we’ve recently discovered The Barn. They are the champions of the notorious Single Origin Coffees while working with speciality coffeeshops and quality roasters, both local and global. Their goal? The Barn claims to “serve our customers the best coffee we can possibly source.” With a variety of top-end equipments and an open willingness to experiment, The Barn embraces the notion that their coffee can perpetually be finessed. With respects to quality, they are working at international standards and they certainly draw an international crowd. Italian, French, German, English, Spanish, Japanese – all languages crowding into the miniscule space of Auguststrasse 58 for an airpressed Finca Matalapa, an Arabbica espresso, a Cortado…complimented by a delicious selection of pastries, cakes, tarts, jams, and sandwiches. Beware, Intelligentsia of Chicago, MerceandtheMuse of Paris, and LA MILL of Los Angeles, you have finally encountered a worthy opponent!
