Specialty Coffee Shops In Berlin Where You Can Get Your Caffeine Fix


On an average day, a German consumes 2.6 cups of coffee per day. That is equivalent to at least 150 litres of caffeinated hot beverage drank per person annually. It is also very common to see a lot of people in Berlin inside a cafe, sipping their favourite cup while beating deadlines, chatting with their friends, or simply chilling out while observing the people around them. The continuously evolving coffee culture in Berlin paved the way for the emergence of hip cafes and speciality coffee shops all over the city in recent years. Here are some of the best-known speciality coffee shops in Berlin that offers more than just your usual morning brew.
