We are so excited to announce our first-ever international roasting partner, The Barn! Coming all the way from Berlin, Germany, The Barn was founded in 2010 and has quickly become one of Europe’s leading roasters, helping to grow the capital city’s specialty coffee scene and put Berlin on the global coffee map. Their vision has been clear from the start; to focus on sourcing and roasting the absolute highest quality coffee possible, without compromise. Winning both the European Coffee Awards “Best Specialty Coffee Roaster” and “Best Independent Specialty Coffee Shop” awards, The Barn is a true Berlin craft-coffee institution.
In celebration of our first international partnership, we have two delicious coffees to share with you. The first is the best Kenyan coffee we have had all year, Kenya Gichathaini AA. It’s love at first sip with this cup! Grown in rich, red volcanic soil, nestled between two mountain ranges in Nyeri, and processed by the renowned Gichathaini mill on the slope of Mt. Kenya, this cup is bursting with notes of ripe red berries, hibiscus tea, and soft caramel. Dynamic and lush, this brew is buttery like warm cherry pie, juicy like fresh-picked raspberries, and rich like a gourmet caramel apple. The brew grows sweeter as it cools, with the fruit flavors evolving into a cherry cordial syrup with a delicate vanilla-floral finish. This cup alone is worthy of a trip to Berlin.
As for the second, patience is a virtue, but it’s equally outstanding.
From their humble beginnings as a small cafe in the Mitte district to their current 12 cafe and roasting operation spanning Berlin, Mallorca, and Dubai, The Barn has remained true to their roots of prioritizing quality coffee and the highest quality experience. Coffee from The Barn is a must-try for any specialty coffee lover, and we are so excited to bring this glimpse into the European coffee scene to you. Very limited quantities available. Make sure to grab your bag today and secure your bragging rights as an international coffee connoisseur!
