Take the urban flair of a coffee shop, the coziness of a tiny, cute bakery, mix in some friendly staff and put the whole thing into a medium-sized two-story space in Hanover Mitte. Add organic ingredients, good coffee – et voilá: Bean’s since coffee is what you get.
I came across this place last week after shopping for some vintage tableware and decided to take a short break there. Turns out this was a really good decision, as they serve really delicious drinks and snacks – all from certified organic produce – in a warm, welcoming ambiente. Beautiful hot chocolate, steaming rooibos tea and the best poppy seed cake I’ve had in a long time was what we tried.
They serve the usual range of coffee varieties like plain coffee, cappuccino, espresso, latte macchiato and several flavoured coffee drinks plus about 10 tea specialties and homemade hot chocolate (white or dark). The latte macchiato I had tried some time ago had a very smooth milk froth and good-tasting espresso, which in my opinion is a key factor characterizing good cafés. They also offer several cold drinks, freshly made sandwiches, a soup of the day and house-baked cakes, if I remember correctly. Prices are affordable, I’d say a little cheaper than at well-known brands like Starbucks, and if you keep in mind that all ingredients are from organic produce, that’s really reasonably priced.
What I also liked about this café was the stylish, lounge-like but still comfy interior in combination with simple decorative details like the display with coffee syrups for sale or the guestbook-wall on which customers are invited to write feedback directly onto the wall. I apologize for the quality of the pictures, as I did not have my camera with me, all I could do was taking some snaps with my cell phone.
So if you appreciate good coffee from organic produce in a comfortable, fresh ambiente, Bean’s in Hanover might be worth a try.
