COFFEE CIRCLE IN THE HEART OF BERGMANNKIEZ — HIGH QUALITY ROASTS FROM SMALL COMMUNITIES

COFFEE CIRCLE IN THE HEART OF BERGMANNKIEZ — HIGH QUALITY ROASTS FROM SMALL COMMUNITIES

Walking into Coffee Circle in Bergmannkiez, it’s not difficult to be entranced by the dark-green tiled floor or the matching minimalist interior with pairings of creamy whites. That is, if you’re not not eyeing up the selection of sweet treats and bakes or trying to get your head around which brew to order. Since opening in 2010, Coffee Circle has sold sustainable coffee with a positive impact. Roasting weekly here in Berlin, the team opened their flagship store in the same complex as their Wedding roastery seven years later, followed by a location in Mitte and finally a third cafe kiosk in the heart of Bergmannkiez. The team have gone beyond most others to bring intricate roasts and close the gap of economic inequality rife in the coffee farming industry. This is done by venturing to the most remote places to buy fresh beans at fair prices from small farms, forming personal relationships with suppliers and providing a platform for them in the coffee-obsessed European market. Don’t worry, if you’re not (yet) a coffee aficionado, the expert baristas will do the talking and advise you well.

Whether it’s notes of marzipan, rhubarb, cocoa or toffee you long for, the cafe’s range of roasts encompasses the lot, and there are options for your cafetière, filter or coffee grinder if you’d like to enjoy the brews at home. Overwhelmed and indecisive? Coffee Circle’s tasting packs are a good place to start, and are also available online. One thing’s for sure: at the Cee Cee office, Coffee Circle has us gathering around the machine to make our own brews each morning. Oh, and for every kilo of coffee they sell, the team donate €1 to projects in education, health and coffee cultivation in the places the beans originate.
