I have somewhat of a difficult relationship with ice cream. As a kid, I mostly didn’t like it. And even today, I can be a difficult customer. That’s why you can be assured that Coure di Vetro has been tested through a critical eye (or rather, taste buds) and genuinely deserves the title of one of the best ice cream places in Berlin.
Coure di Vetro means “heart of glass”. This refers to the “heart of the shop”, the production room where the magic happens behind glass walls. Here the staff presses juice, grinds nuts, mixes ingredients and eventually pours fresh, delicious ice cream out of the machine; everything lies under the eyes of their customers; no secrets, no artificial flavors, no food colorings here.
Of course, Coure di Vetro offers many of the classics: vanilla, strawberry, chocolate… But they also come up with great new creations, such as salty licorice or “Still Smiling”, a mix of ricotta, figs and sheep’s milk. However, my all-time favorite is their Sorbetto al Cioccolato, a chocolate sorbet. I’ve never tried any ice cream which such a rich chocolate taste!
