Meet (a part of) the crew of The Barn, a super-small coffee store on a side-street of Auguststraße. Though it’s been only open for little more than one and a half year, it already found its way into the hearts of coffee-lovers from all over the city.

Erich Hamann Bittere Schokoladen Berlin was founded in 1912 by, you guessed it, Erich Hamann, a confectioner who came from the Memel Territory in East Prussia.
