Not just an awesome name, also a fantastic coffee shop that demonstrated good awareness of allergen cross-contamination and when I visited in 2014 had two cakes that were gluten-free each day. However these gluten-free cakes were in the same area as non gluten-free cakes which is not ideal even with their cross-contamination awareness. Non gluten-free friends were very impressed with...

I have a hard time getting good coffee in Germany. And then we walked past this gem. It's a coffee and cake bar with a roaster next door. So just walk in, get a GREAT espresso (best crema, color, smell, taste & temperature I ever had in Germany!) and ask for beans to make this at home!

Good coffee a bit prices though. The atmosphere is okay, but not really nice. Although I like the coffee bags and roasteries as interior :) Cakes are okay, but not so tasty as they look.

The café is situated in the Rüttenscheid neighborhood in Essen. It is one oft quite some cafés there. It is a nice one as such as they are roasting their own coffee there. Apart from that they are offering all day brekky and tasty sweet stuft. It can get quite busy on afternoons. But there many other café in the... More

Coffee is quite good. This is the only roaster in Essen that I've been to that actually has real SCAA light and medium roasted coffees. As opposed to dark and extra dark roasted coffee. The quality of mike steaming is inconsistent depending on the barista.Their selection of cakes is excellent. Good gluten free and dairy free options. The ambience is... More

Folks, come on - looking at the other reviews: This place has artificially been hyped and this isn't justified. This is a smallish, relaxed-atmosphere coffee bar seating (only) a few people, plus some additional seats on the pavement in summer. And yes, they do their own coffee roasting, and yes, they know how to operate a full coffee equipment -... More
