The Full Pour
Coffee and beer, two of the greatest simple pleasures known to man. When they're done well, and you're fortunate enough to come across a solid concept delivering at a high level on at least one of them, you're already winning. But when they're both done well under one roof, you're truly onto something sustainable in life. KASCHK is one of two local favorites successfully offering up the coffee/beer thing in Berlin. Whether it's a homey reading/work lounge to accompany your high-quality morning joe (by Fjord Coffee), or a few beers later that evening (or afternoon, if that's your thing), this Nordic-themed beer cafe confidently delivers on essential needs.
Why is this on THL?
By jumping off the tourist conveyor belt from time to time (and of course reading The Hop Leaves), we can help shape our own good travel fortune. If you're a regular on this website, than chances are that you already have an alternative approach to experiencing a new city, but the message is certainly worth repeating. When we set up camp in smaller communities, traveling closer to the ground, we put ourselves into position for otherwise typical daily routines to become rewarding travel experiences. How fortunate to potentially have a concept such as KASCHK right near your neighborhood home base of operations, providing you with a peek at daily Berlin life. It's the perfect place for a morning coffee (book in hand), or a gathering with your travel compadres over beers as you plan your next Berlin adventure. Before you head out, go downstairs and blow off some steam with a round of shuffleboard. Yes, you can do that now in Berlin.
