Berkeley Coffee Social – cosy coffee haven

A short hike up from bustling Kyoungridan is one of the more famous coffee shops in town: Berkeley Coffee Social.

The shop is small but very cosy and invites to hang out for hours, with plenty of magazines and books around (of course, you could probably also hang out with a smartphone).

The menu for pour over is changing based on availability and at the time of our visit they had an Ethiopian and a Tanzanian option. Ethiopia it was!

This place  is very different from technocrat alternatives like Peer or Devastate – it gives a nice warm feel. Fortunately that does not come with the ‘overly intuitive’ approach of other cafes. Components are warmed up, a scale and timer were there all the way and actually used, too. Things are done properly.

The result was a great cup of Ethiopian coffee and it came along with some nice chat, too. Berkeley Coffee has a safe spot among my favorites in the city! See you soon.
