Ever heard the expression 'when pigs fly'? Well, they're flying every day at Moabit's Spontan Coffee – and they're bringing great coffee with them.
Moabit is an area of Berlin with a unique history – first inhabited in 1685 and incorporated into Berlin in 1861, the former industrial neighbourhood is fully surrounded by three waterways, which define its present-day border and make it an 'island' of sorts.
Between 1945 and 1990, Moabit was part of the British sector of West Berlin and directly bordered East Berlin – nowadays, it hosts a range of nice pubs, restaurants and cafes along its quiet streets.
are a specialty coffee shop, located on Gotzkowskystraße on Moabit's southern end, a short walk from the Spree. Although specialty coffee has, until now, been a rare sight in Moabit, the Spontan team are showing their neighbourhood what great quality is all about.
