The way-cool hipster coffee place in Berlin, Bonanza Coffee Roasters is located in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood and does a brisk to-go business of their yummy coffees.
The inside is sparse; stool seating at tall tables, but the space is roomy enough. The front room is taken up by the barista’s ‘kitchen.’ You order your coffee and then they begin grinding the beans and making it in front of you. On my visit, they were offering Guatemalan and Ethiopian beans and the cashier explained the differences in flavors. I don’t remember all the descriptions, but the Guatemalan was supposed to have more chocolate undertones, while the Ethiopian more citrusy, so I went with the Guatemalan. It was tasty and a bit on the sweet side, which didn’t bother me a bit. The cappuccino was 2.90 EUR and really good.
They sell beans and have grinders set up so you can bring a little coffee joy home. Like the majority of restaurants and cafes in Berlin, Bonanza also has quite a few outside tables if the weather is being friendly. We’ll give Bonanza kicks for coffee; concept and outdoor space
