Welcome to our Blog!

There is so much to learn about specialty coffee - sharing knowledge is important for all of us to stay informed and to progress. We started writing down our stories about brewing techniques, tastes, farm work, community events, workshops, our daily barista routines, aspects of specialty coffee worth sharing, travel notes and some fun stuff happening here at THE BARN. Our writers have different levels of experiences and will tell their stories through their own eyes - we feel this reflects the diversity of the community we serve.

We hope you enjoy the read, listen and watch. Let us know if you have any suggestions of what you would like us to cover - just send us an email to webshop@thebarn.de to get in touch.
