My personal highlight: Enjoying premium coffee from Ethiopia and a tasty coffee flavored craft beer
What makes a coffee place special? Do you like interaction with the barista? Are you looking for tranquility to work or exchange a word with other guests? Maybe even a tasty craft beer after work?
I found all of these at Alehouse Palmhof close to the university in Kreis 6.
About Desta’s coffee
Desta’s Coffee is a premium coffee roasted of single origin arabica beans. The flavor of my flat white was nutty and mild. These coffee beans are cultivated around 1’900 meters above sea level among a totally natural environment in the rainforest of southwestern Ethiopia. Desta Daniel Kebede is half Swiss and half Ethiopian and has a strong relation to his origin. That is how the passion for coffee brought Desta’s coffee to life. The company cooperates with local partners and offers them conditions that they can develop themselves. How do they do that? 20 percent of the gains which is generated flows back directly to the worker. Transparency and respect are important values that are lived here.
Desta’s coffee is available at The Alehouse and distributed nationally to other coffee spots. You can also order their quality coffee online.
20 taps and 1 hand pump of craft beer
If you are into craft beer after your coffee break stop by for a glass. The Alehouse is practically located close to the university. Find local Swiss beers and international ones. Sit at the bar and let the big screen on the wall suggest you the actual beer offer. I tried an excellent coffee craft beer Espresso Stout from the Japanese brewer Hitachino and a sour beer called La Vertu Autumn Sour. The staff is well skilled to tell you a story about every single beer. Are you curious? Find the actual selection of craft beers here.
All about my food experience will follow soon in a separate story! Their brunch is waiting for me.
