  1. Ok folks. Apologies for going slightly early on this. I know that we are all still enjoying the March offering from Rave at the moment. However, April's submission will need a bit of organising so trying to stay ahead of the game! Very pleased to announce that the April LSOL will be from The Barn Coffee Roasters in Berlin. The Barn is one of the leading Specialty Coffee Roasters in Germany and are known for their uncompromising approach to quality and pursuit of the ultimate coffee experience. I was lucky enough to visit their roastery last year and their reputation is well founded. Now you guys get to try some of their coffee too! LSOL members will receive 1kg posted directly to them from Berlin. Hopefully, with luck and a fair wind, this will be in the form of 4x250g bags with minimal detail. As usual, there will be some guest slots available. Where this month will differ from usual is that the guest slots will also be 1kg. 500g packages don't work due to postage costs. It is up to you if you want to swap with other members or keep your kilo, but the price delivered will be £26. Not bad for a kilo of coffee from one of Europe's hottest roasters! Dispatch is anticipated for w/c 18th April. There is a slight possibility of it slipping to the following week as a new roaster is going in 14/15th, but Ralf is pretty confident (despite currently serving V60s in Osaka!). Guest slots initially restricted to 10. Please sign up below. Any questions, please fire away Cheers Nick p.s. Please keep the feedback coming for the Rave LSOL.
  2. I have an unopened 250g pack of Dambi Uddo beans roasted on 6th September at The Barn in Berlin. I have no idea about the roast or the bean and I only ordered them in order to get a metal lid for my Aergrind as they were part of a package deal. I will throw in two sample packs from them as well - Abrham Hat (Ethiopian) and Layo Taraga (Ethiopian) I am asking £12.50 including postage in the UK [ATTACH=CONFIG]36809[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]36810[/ATTACH]
  3. I am currently staying in Berlin for a few days and so I'm looking to try out a few coffee joints whilst in here. I might pick up some beans if available too. I've just been to the Barn which seems quite nice. I'm wondering if there are any other recommended spots around, ideally places which might sell beans also. Regards

  5. My lovely other half just returned from Berlin with a bag of Bonanza's Muthigi-Ini Kenyan, and The Barn's Finca Tamana Colombian. Both sound great from looking at their sites. Anyone got first hand experience?

    Five elephant

    Every other barista I talk to seems to hold five elephant (and the barn), beans in high esteem and talks about how they'll soon be using them. I've personally never had five elephant coffee so can anyone tell me if they have and why there's so much hype? Cheers Unoll
  7. A few months ago I was in Berlin and saw this crazy line up of k30s at what seems to be a ludicrous height. Thought someone as weird as me might appreciate it.
  8. [*amongst other reasons] Whenever we go away she immediately looks for the best coffee shops to keep me happy. We've just booked a weekend in Berlin, and my first thought turned to The Barn. So I started Googling and she looked over my shoulder and asked how I knew about it. I gave her the obvious explanation, and she refused to confirm or deny whether she had been secretly planning to stumble across it on our travels. Happens everywhere we go. In Lisbon it was Slow Coffee and Fabrica; in Sri Lanka it was a little place that did the best burgers and happened to do very good coffee too. In all seriousness it makes me feel very lucky.
  9. Hey all - so I was in Berlin recently and stopped by Tres Cabezas. My preferred drink is a flat white, and I honestly think it could've been one of the best I had there. They was using their own blends - https://www.trescabezas.de/en/coffee/espresso-blend-wild-at-heart. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for similar blends which are more readily available in the UK? Thanks!
  10. I'll be visiting Berlin next week. I've got the obvious coffee spots bookmarked from previous visits (The Barn, Five Elephant), but the question is 'which beans should I bring back with me?' Exclusively for filter; fruitier = better. Suggestions please!
  11. I'm off to Berlin in October for 4 nights and I'm now starting to think about where I plan to visit (coffee and non-coffee related). There seems to be so many cracking cafes and decent sights / attractions I'm never going to fit everything in. I'm hoping for some recommendations please to help me prioritise! Cheers

    It is my 50th in November so we are off to Berlin with a few friends. Not looking for cafe recommendations as I have a list [emoji51] more looking for eating recommendations mainly for evening meals. Good food and a good atmosphere are the two main ingredients I am looking for. We are staying in Mitte however we are willing to travel! Any recommendations greatly received.

  13. Just moved to Berlin after a while in London. Somehow I never got into coffee as much in London as I have here and I'm now experimenting with a bunch of stuff.
  14. I'm curious as to where people think is the most exciting city/area for coffee. Berlin seems really interesting and packed full of roasters/cafes and I'm really keen to go, but there's plenty of other fantastic roasters and cafes around the world. I thought Dublin was really cool, and I always enjoy a visit to London. Plenty of Scandi countries look promising too. Perhaps some folks who are better traveled than I could impart their thoughts, I'd be keen to hear them! TLDR: If you could visit one place to drink at some of the best cafes, where would you go?
  15. Hi guys Have just booked a long weekend in Berlin for end of March/start of April. I've read about Bonanza, Coffee CK, Kristiania, NoMoreSleep and TheBarn but would like to hear experiences from you lot since you are fussy like me Anybody been over and found decent places? Cheers Michael
  16. Double Eye Akazienstrasse 22 10823 Berlin We all know how difficult it is to find great coffee when you’re out and about and this can present itself tenfold in a different country. Berlin is a place I have been a lot this year, it’s the chosen venue for the recording of my band’s new album and so having a source of great coffee is imperative. Fortunately my good friend and fellow band member Hamish Clark lives there and is a kiwi to boot so knows about good coffee. The daily ritual on most mornings while recording has been coffee and breakfast before any work can be done; this involves a brisk 20 minute walk to what is now one of my favourite coffee shops in the world, ever. The Double Eye is small but stylish and has been situated at Akazienstrasse 22 for the last 10 years. The shop is owned by the 2005 European World Cup Barista Champion Arno Schmeil a very knowledgeable guy with great passion for turning out the very best coffee. The staff are all trained by him ensuring a very consistent product. Arno also roasts his own beans onsite furthering the uniqueness of his coffee. Due to the size constraints Double Eye doesn’t have any seating inside whatsoever; in fact there is barely standing room for the next 15 customers. This is in part the reason you will always see a crowd of people outside the shop and very often spilling down the street for their coffee fix, even in the depths of winter. As well a some wonderful pastries, notable the custard tarts you can buy can buy a range of their beans for home use. 10/10
