Bonanza

Acolytes of the so-called ‘Third Wave’ of coffee production, Bonanza serves some of the best cups in Berlin. Its proprietors are fastidiously involved at every step of the process, from relationships with suppliers to roasting the beans in-house for freshness and taking due care over steam temperature. While beans are available to buy for home, the final results in the shop are unbeatable. The bar is dominated by a highly sensitive hand-made Synesso Cyncra machine and seating is minimal: customers perch among sacks of beans, piled high all around the little shop or move outside to benches on the pavement. The flat white, an Antipodean take on a latte, is smooth and divine and their cake selection is small – pretty much carrot cake and brownies – but high grade.

Finding good coffee in Berlin is a breeze, and Bonanza Coffee Roasters is no exception to the rule. It’s a tiny, rustic little place with a few high stools dotted by the windowsill and benches outside. Its industrial décor is typical of Berlin hipster hangouts and the ethos here is simple: Third wave coffee production and beans roasted in-house. Staff are young and carefree, and the product is high quality. Try and iced-latte (around 3 Euro) in Berlin summer heat with agave syrup for sweetness. They serve a simple selection of artisanal baked goods and there are high fashion magazines to flick through whilst you watch the cool kids and ‘Macchiato mums’ of Prenzlauer Berg walk by.
