Specialty Coffee Shops in Berlin

The third wave coffee scene in Berlin is kicking and alive. Delicious food & quality coffee is the perfect combination everybody's looking for.

There are plenty of specialty coffee shops in Berlin, each one of them will serve you with great coffee and welcome you in its unique environment and space, and in an era when so many cafes are opening It is impossible to put them all in one post, so the reason I chose the ones in the list below is that you could see a bit of everything and enjoy of Berlin's diversity.

While it's possible to find shops all over the city, in the different neighborhoods, you could find a higher concentration of them in Mitte, Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, and Neukölln while in Prenzlauer Berg and Charlottenberg you could find a bit less of them but it doesn't mean anything at all. Ready for it?! Let's go!
