Coffee Profilers is located along Karl Marx Allee, a monumental GDR time boulevard in the Friedrichshain neighborhood. A great area to explore if you are into Cold War stories and architecture. Take the subway to Frankfurter Tor (U5 line) and walk for 3 minutes. Find the super cool fingerprint sign out front. Get in.
We absolutely love how the clean and cozy (almost homely) interior constrasts to the monumental boulevard outside. The design concept is a cool mishmash of Scandinavian and GDR (German Democratic Republic) elements. We particularly love the bright blue accents and the vintage light fixtures. See if you can seat at the big table in the back. It’s cozy and private.
The coffee served here is top notch. Hands down one of the best in the city. The über friendly baristas here are Greek. Stefanos and Stavros are brothers. They served us with such care and enthusiasm that we felt right at home. In fact, Stefanos was the 2014 World Brewers Cup champion. Don’t be intimidated, though. The guy is adorable and super approachable.
They do have quite a selection of grains and will do their best to match your coffee palate preferences. Talk to them. They’ll love it! Naturally you can also pick your coffee preparation method of preference. When in doubt, be adventurous! Or get the perfect “flat white”. You won’t regret it. There are pastries and cakes on offer as well. We chose a funky mille feuille and it was quite tasty.

Make sure to walk or bike along Karl Marx Allee and observe the little local shops in contrast to the monumental architecture. You will be transported in time. Particularly interesting are the vintage furtniture shops. Some of them are the best in town, like Coroto or Original.
