Finally a place in Berlin

Postby Kiduk » Fri May 11, 2007 1:07 am

Hi everybody,

Finally there is a place in Berlin that does a good attempt to serve some decent espresso. Yes my place! After a hellish 1 year we have opened.
We have been open 2,5 weeks now and i did not realize that there is so little money to be earned with selling cups of coffee! Even though it is going better than expected and last weekend on Sunday we completely sold out at 16:00. Mabye i should offer paid massages for the customers or have dancing bears on the side were people can throw money at.
We have till now not put one single sour shot out and i must say they compare well to other shops we have been to. We have not saved a penny on the putting only (what was a year ago) the best in our shop so come and visit when ever.
Our shop is called BonanzaCoffeeHeroes. And it is in the district Prenzlauer Berg. Berlin.
I am not allowed to mention an adress am i?

Have heart. It will take a while for people to know you are there, but once they find you they will come back - and bring their friends. The very best of luck with it.

Best of luck, Kiduk.

I probably won't be in Berlin this year, but I will be sure to visit your shop when I am there next. I really like the Prenzlauer berg district, it has lots of nice shops and looks generally nice.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the pictures you sent me by the way. Just in time!
And some of them are hagging on the wall in our shop, but you knew that.
I will post pictures of the shop before wednesday.
I would do it now but someone ruined my digital camera on my last coffee trip in the states.
