Let me introduce you to the new coffee machine of my friend Ralf. You can fly to the moon and back with this rocket. The coffee is amazing and I think he should consider to open a creative kitchen café.
Lately I have had a lot of creative coffee moments while cruising the streets of Berlin, exploring new locations for my city guide Not Quite Berlin. If you want to stay updated sign up here.
I wish you a very creative week!
My all time favorite place to take a very Parisian break, is the Swedish Institute (SI) in Le Marais.
This wonderful Parisian ‘Hôtel particulier’ is one of the most beautiful places where you can discover Swedish culture, art and design. I love the Café with all the yummy Swedish pastries and the cozy scandinavian atmosphere. Make sure you pay a visit to the garden. It’s magic!
Ps: Isn’t it crazy to go all the way to Paris to have a perfect Swedish coffee moment? I guess it’s all about the mix. Simply perfect!

I took some time off to hang out in my grandma’s garden. Simply wonderful!
Ps: I’m so fascinated by her keeping all the decoration from the good old days. Just like the adorable heart shaped drip catcher. It’s a symbol of my childhood. Have to stop now – I’m getting too nostalgic here.
It’s finally summer in the city and I am so ready for having fun in the sun. This year one of my favorite coffee-garden is the one in “Clärchens Ballhaus”. They recently opened an extra garden plus a cozy hidden terrace in the backyard. It’s one of the most adorable hideaways, that Berlin Mitte has to offer.
It’s also really nice in the evening. Wine, dine and dance away …
A good coffee in the morning makes my day! For years I have been very bialetti, until I tasted a Belgium drip coffee. My friend was using a simple filter and ever since I am so melitta. I fell in love with this beautiful ceramic filter, bought it and took it home. Using freshly ground coffee is the best there is. The coffee is so mild and soft with an amazing flavor. Believe it or not – I turned into an early bird! Just love it when the apartment smells like coffee all morning.
What about you? How does your perfect coffee-moment looks like?
After all the shopping in the creative Bermuda triangle of Rue Custine, you shouldn’t continue your Paris tour without a lunch at the wine shop “La Cave du Nansouty”. Great food, good wine and a very sympathetic waiter makes this little tour in the 18th arrondissement complete. All the three shops share a great sense of humor and a passion for the unexpected! Enjoy!
