Nestled into one of Berlin’s most tranquil courtyards, coffee haven Father Carpenter has been flourishing into quite the institution since its opening in 2015, when it first caught our attention with cappuccino perfection courtesy of beans from Fjord, a roastery run owner Krésten Thøgersen in collaboration with Silo Coffee. Since then, Father Carpenter has overflowed into a “takeaway” branch next door and expanded its kitchen to offer a seasonal, regional brunch menu. Produce from Markthalle Neun is whipped up into the likes of vegan coconut granola with orange soy labneh and roasted portobello mushrooms on sourdough. But it doesn’t stop there — the team is going above and beyond to foster exchange and innovation within Berlin’s specialty coffee scene. Their recurring events, which are free and open to all, take the form of weekly cuppings and “The Backroom Talks”, a speaker series in which coffee industry stalwarts share expertise and experiences.
