Two employees and 20 types of coffee - that's how it started. We discovered our passion for coffee during a visit to New York, more precisely to Porto Rico, a long-established coffee company in Brooklyn. There should be something like that in Berlin too: the whole world of coffee in one shop. Our business idea was born. That was in 1999. Almost on Kurfürstendamm, in Charlottenburger Uhlandstrasse, we opened our roastery on February 9, 2001, small and fine, in the historic Uhland Castle. We were successful because there was no such thing as us. We had opened a gap in the market that subsequently found many imitators in the capital. Countless types of coffee are available in our shop or café today.
