Come CoLab: Berlin – City Guide

Berlin is a city which boasts a well-established coffee scene, with a handful or highly reputed coffee roasters within the city, local specialty cafes have been spoilt for choice. We counted over forty specialty coffee businesses in Berlin, many of them getting involved with BGE and CoLab: Berlin through the fringe event program.

Our fringe event program is designed to connect international visitors to CoLab with the local coffee scene. All of the events are free to attend and allow you the chance to explore cafes, roasters and more as you navigate your way across the city. Attending a fringe event could give you the opportunity to increase your network and have fun at the same time!

To prepare CoLab'ers for the upcoming event in Berlin we have created a handy Berlin coffee map. This includes a range of cafes, roasters and importers identified by a coffee cup or a flame. Coming to the event? You'll get a printed one at registration too.
