CAFE STRAUSS: SUN-DRENCHED COFFEE SPOT BESIDE A SERENE CEMETERY

CAFE STRAUSS: SUN-DRENCHED COFFEE SPOT BESIDE A SERENE CEMETERY

This feature appears in Cee Cee Book No.2, published by Distanz

The beautiful terrace of Cafe Strauss at the Friedrichswerderscher cemetery is an ideal spot to enjoy the sun in peace and quiet. Owner Olga Strauss has been roasting her signature coffee here since 2013 with the hot-air roasting machine that sits beside the door. While enjoying a cappuccino and a piece of cake or “Stulle” (an open sandwich), you can watch the beans bounce around and darken as the room fills with the scent of roasting coffee. In the afternoon, as the sun hits the cozy terrace of the former chapel of rest, you almost forget you’re somewhere morbid. Taking a stroll around the quiet premises, it’s easy to obliviate time.

THE MAGIC OF MAKING BREAD — ROE & CO.LLECTIVE MEETS CEE CEE LESSONS AT BROT IST GOLD

THE MAGIC OF MAKING BREAD — ROE & CO.LLECTIVE MEETS CEE CEE LESSONS AT BROT IST GOLD

Breadmaking is truly magical. You mix flour and water and end up with a delicious staple food. It’s also a fine art: kneading, rising, proving and finally baking to perfection. As big bread fans ourselves, we’re very excited to master these skills for the next edition of Roe & Co.llective meets Cee Cee Lessons. On 27.08.2019, our friends at Brot ist Gold bakery will be showing us how to make a true sourdough before we work together to create our very own loaves. We’ll be in very good hands: since opening their shop in March 2019, Kolja Orzeszko und Athanassios Petalotis have focused all their efforts on making the best possible bread from the fewest possible ingredients, all sourced from within a 100km radius. Flour, water and salt alone go into their loaves, which are handmade and left to rise naturally. It’s baking in its highest form. The event will be a chance for participants to come together and learn from these artisans how to work as a team to make something truly extraordinary. The reward: a classic German “Abendbrot” and drinks from our friends at Roe & Co. It’ll be a how-to to remember. (Text: Benji Haughton / Potos: Anna Neustroeva & Daniel Farò)

We’re giving away a few tickets to the workshop. To get your hands on one, send us an email to win@ceecee.cctelling us why you’d like to join.

METROPOLIS AT BABYLON: CLASSIC SILENT CINEMA — RECOMMENDED BY CARO EICHSTAEDT

METROPOLIS AT BABYLON: CLASSIC SILENT CINEMA — RECOMMENDED BY CARO EICHSTAEDT

Ever since the Babylon cinema caught my eye, I’ve wanted to experience the glamour and mystery of 1920s Berlin. Opened in 1929, the Babylon brings you instantly back to a golden age of film. This unassuming building, just across from the Volksbühne theatre, comes from a time where movies had no soundtrack and were accompanied by a live orchestra. Now, in 2019, you can relive the old days. This Saturday (24.08.2019) Babylon is presenting a special screening of Fritz Lang’s seminal 1927 science-fiction film, Metropolis. As part of its 90th anniversary celebrations, the cinema has brought together its own in-house ensemble – the Babylon Orchestra Berlin – giving the film’s futuristic dystopia the powerful accompaniment that Lang intended. I couldn’t help but get goosebumps as the orchestra played their climax. If you miss out on this Saturday’s screening, check out one of Babylon’s regular free screenings with organ music – they have the last remaining cinema organ in Germany.

After spending the past years studying and working in the Netherlands, Caro Eichstaedt moved to Berlin in January 2019. She works at our sister agency Cee Cee Creative.

NIYOK — THE TOOTHPASTE FOR GUILT-FREE BRUSHING

NIYOK — THE TOOTHPASTE FOR GUILT-FREE BRUSHING

My bathroom battle is against not just plaque but also plastic. The latter is more of a problem, given the heaps of plastic packaging lining the shelves of the chemist. The result: a hurt environment and a hurt conscience. Hope for change comes by the name of Niyok– a vegan, certified-as-natural toothpaste in a sustainable chalk-based tube. This toothpaste is all about what it doesn’t contain: plasticizers, waxes, stabilizers and fluoride are all absent. For Niyok founders Carlo Hanuszkiewicz and John Peitschner, it’s crucial to know what our toiletries contain and why. Thus every ingredient (like capric triglyceride) is accompanied by an explanation (it gives the toothpaste consistency). The battle in my bathroom has now taken on a new dynamic: choosing between Niyok’s lemongrass and ginger, blood orange and basil, and classic peppermint. (Text: Nina Trippel / Photos: Johanna Rademacher-Flesland & Niyok)

PILATES ON TEMPELHOFER FELD: ADORE YOUR CORE IN THE OPEN AIR

PILATES ON TEMPELHOFER FELD: ADORE YOUR CORE IN THE OPEN AIR

We all want to keep up our fitness regime throughout the warmer months, but going to classes can mean consigning yourself to a dimly-lit Hinterhof studio while the sun shines outside. The solution is simple: go alfresco. Every Sunday morning, amongst the wildflowers and shrubs of the leafiest patch of Tempelhofer Feld, instructor Stella brings both beginners and experts together for a delightful, revitalizing open-air pilates class. No previous experience is required: simply turn up at 10h with a mat or towel and get ready to stretch and strengthen with just the earth below you and the sky above. Describing her style as yogilates, Stella uses her classes to build deep muscle tissues for improved posture and vitality, and closes each session with meditation to bring emotional benefits too. Whether you are a bendy yogi or a gym bunny, the classes are the perfect weekend exercise, leaving you contented and ready to take on big city life again.
