I do like coffee, like a lot, true story. One thing that can definitely ruin my day is when I realize too late that my coffee grinder machine is empty of beans… There are solutions to avoid this drama: to be organized. I know there are companies offering coffee subscriptions so you can be sure you’re always stocked, but these eliminate part of all the fun. I love to get the coffee smell kick when I enter a roasting shop and I definitely can’t get that in front of my computer, I tried, it doesn’t work.
A few years ago I was lost on my bike (and on purpose) in Berlin around the Akazienstrasse in Schöneberg. I spotted a tiny place with a big sign: Double Eye. They did celebrate their 15th birthday during the summer of 2016 and ever since my first visit I’ve always found something new in that shop, be it a galao, pasteis de natas or the possibility to choose how strong you want your coffee and that’s cool!
The staff is friendly and give very good advice when it’s time to select your coffee beans regarding your taste and coffee machine at home. It’s actually the first reason of my visit but the coffee smell has a side effect on me: the roasting coffee smell makes me forget everything, I’m just happy to wait for my double espresso and generously offered biscuit.
