Berlin: Nano Kaffee Anchors An Ever-Changing Kreuzberg https://t.co/beTcvxD0uL
When Massah moved from Münster to West Berlin at the age of five, the Wall was still standing, and Kreuzberg’s criminal reputation, centered around Kottbusser Tor, scared many away. Until 2010, kaffee for Kreuzbergers typically meant a cup of supermarket filter brew from the bakery, left steeping for days, as the Second Wave coffee movement largely bypassed Berlin. Today, Dresdener Straße’s eclectic inhabitants include bourgeois bars, a Korean cafe, copy shop, Babylon Cinema, and Nano, one of the latest Third Wave coffee joints to since pop up, changing the face of the city.
